#plasticreductionplan#alsodisabilityconsiderations#lessplasticin2018 teeth! because i am immunosuppressed, i am always susceptible to gum disease. the dentist always says i must floss or use interdental brushes, but these items are turbo plastic waste. because of my dexterity issues, i'm not very effective with a piece of floss by itself. but "my flossing friend" - a stainless steel invention made in the usa - enables me to floss easily. it looks like a vetinary implement but once i got used to it, it's brilliant. was expensive to import, but spread over its lifetime, a lot lot less than i would spend on single use flossers or interdental brushes. found some silk floss online by georganics, sold in minimal glass packaging, and a solid toothpaste also sold in glass. (looking at the ingredients, i might be able to make my own refill next time...) finally, i have tried bamboo brushes and they are a disaster because i can't easily get to the back of my mouth (again, the hands...) but i have found a more minimally packaged toothbrush head for my rather ancient electric toothbrush, with which i also use rechargeable batteries. it's not perfect, but it's better!

The dryer breaking has forced this lovely line to be placed in my backyard. a big giant z of lines and i honestly love it. neighborhood hoa may not love it, but eh. 😅 it isn’t the most visually attractive but there is something therapeutic about hanging laundry. the smell it leaves you, the slowness of the process... the birds chirping and the sun peaking through. a kids swinging and chatting about his ability to fly (please don’t try lo). i’ve been struggling this month with some discouragement and just down a bit. must be the end of winter blues. either way... the laundry line has been good for me. even if initially it was a b**w for the dryer to break. it has taught me that with 6 in the fam - we literally cannot go more than a day without doing a load of laundry. so a line or a dryer is an absolute must. (and yes reed is swinging in pajamas. it’s how we roll most days. #noshame #rockthejammies)

When i was 7th std,one fine day at school i found my classmate sitting very uncomfortably in a corner during tiffin time. i walked upto her and asked ," what's wrong ? . obviously she didn't answer me at first but finally she almost whispered in my ears that she was having periods for the very first time . i almost shouted and asked. " so what ?" she told me lowered my voice .though i was a kid but i realised something was not right at that moment .idk how i sat beside her and held her palm and made her understood that there is nothing dangerous and a big secret or something . it's just normal and made her comfortable and normal . and i still remember when i told her ," arry periods is common among woman's " and i felt that she felt safe and a member of the society . she just smiled and asked me ," so it's okh to bleed ?" i gave an assuring smile .
