    I realized I only answered you in my head about the shoe pressure. More than the laces, any resting pressure from even the softest tops. I went several years with only stiffer leather hiking-style line (Keen) including Mary Jane and low hiker styles that could lace or buckle loose yet don't rest on the feet. Closest diagnosis was something neurological.

    Wow !! How very kind of you to read through my blogs and make supportive comments!!
    As far as specific questions:
    Product for rust in toilet is Zep (Commercial) Acidic Toilet Bowl Cleaner . I got it at
    Ace hardware.
    Product for wrinkles that I have been using is Radha Vitamin C Serum for the first layer and then Roc Retinol for the second layer. Roc retinol is OK, but overuse can start thinning skin so that it is sensitive. Found that happening on my cheeks so backed off. I also have been mixing Roc Instant Wrinkle Smoother (something like that anyway, which they don't make anymore but can be purchased on Amazon) with my foundation. I haven't made any progress with wrinkles, except that the wrinkle smoother does it's job somewhat but it is temporary. I tried hyauloronic (sp?) acid and that was just weird. I have something on order from Amazon. I will keep trying a little more before I give up!
    Re the photos & memorabilia....I have the stuff basically organized! It was really rough on my emotions ! I became a bit of a train wreck but think I am bouncing back.I believe I am
    getting my sense of humor back....I hope anyway!
    Re journaling....yes, I do that with my feelings. I have abbreviations and codes so if someone sees the journal they won't know what I mean. emoticon
