One of many things I love about blogging is all the connections you make and how helpful so many fellow bloggers and readers are. You can raise an alarm and people will answer your call. Well, I need your help! Don’t fear — I’m not in trouble, nothing nefarious or diabolical is going on. Nor am I one of those annoying people who say they need help but then only give cryptic hints. Nope. I’m going to share my questions/needs with everyone because you have the answers I seek.
3 Questions I Have for You. Please Advise!
Your suggestions are greatly appreciated!
What Vitamins Should I Take?
I’ve made no secret that depression took a huge toll on me. I’m in recovery and in the process of undoing a lot of damage because I didn’t take very good care of myself. I need a regular vitamin regimen but I struggle swallowing those stupid horse-sized pills. It’s been aggravated by the fact that a few months ago I choked on one, rather badly. Even though I now cut them into fourths, it remains a struggle for me. So what I’m interested in:
- Vitamins with an easy-to-swallow coating. Most seem to lack this.
- Vitamins that aren’t horse-pill sized
- Vitamin chewables
- Vitamin powder (that can be mixed in yogurt)
I’ve really been struggling to be consistent with taking my vitamins and my fear of choking has made it even worse. Max loves me a lot but he is terrible at the Heimlich maneuver. 😀
I feel like my best bet is to find a chewable or powder. In regards to powder, preferably something tasteless. As much as I love a good smoothie, I know myself. I won’t make one every day but I will mix some in my yogurt or cottage cheese.
To Instagram or Not To Instagram?
I have a Twitter and Pinterest account for both my blogs. A personal Facebook account. But no Instagram. A part of me doesn’t want to add more social media but … I do want to grow my blogs and know social media can be a huge asset. Instagram is a bit of an unknown to me, so I’d like to hear your thoughts. Why do you love it? Or hate it? Do you use it more for personal use or for your blog or both?
How To Fix My Uneven Skin Tone?
So going back to the whole depression thing … errr … I was shoddy about taking care of myself, including my skin. Let’s be real here, people. Some days it was a victory that I got out of bed and changed my underwear. 😀 But now I’m looking in the mirror again and I’m not real happy with what I’m seeing. My skin is still good in that I have a minimal amount of fine lines/wrinkles for a woman approaching 42. The bad news is that my skin tone has become quite uneven and I have the dreaded sun spots.
I see so many different products and DIY remedies that I feel a little overwhelmed. If you have uneven skin tone, what are some the remedies you use, both to mask and fix?
I appreciate your tips, suggestions and recommendations!
