The Wrong Genes for Jeans

The Wrong Genes for Jeans

I just wanted to get an update out there so, here it is. I just took some meds and while they may not do much for the pain, hopefully they’ll make me care about it a little less. 

I’ve been seeing all the hard work I did in Febuary start to pay off but March has been a stressful month too. School, work and family issues have left me low on spoons and today, I’ve caused myself quite a bit of pain. Seems it’s been a difficult month for many. I can’t help but think, things wouldn’t seem so dreary of the sun would shine. Spring Break is starting and it feels absolutely nothing like Spring. At least, not the like the humid, hot, Texas Spring that I am used to. I enjoy the muggy, sticky weather. It’s like being wrapped in a blanket and I could use some swaddling. 😉

Today, I attempted to wear jeans instead of jeggings or pajama jeans. I miss wearing actual pants. I feel frumpy in jeggings but it’s better than the intense burning in my hips, thighs and waist line, that I am experiencing now. I ran out of work appropriate attire and since jeans are permitable on Fridays, I put on my softest pair. I have not been able to wear jeans due to fibromyalgia related allydonia. Usually, I can’t put jeans on without immediate, intense pain. This morning, they seemed bearable. They’re a little big so I thought that would work in my favor but pulling them up constantly only seemed to irritate my skin more more. It feels like chemical burns, like I left the Nair on my legs for far too long.

So, now I am sitting here in my pajama pants. Spring Break is this week and I’m glad I’ll get to run around in my joggers. The dog doesn’t understand why he can’t sit in my lap. My skin hasn’t felt this sensitive since I was first diagnosed with fibromyalgia but at least I got to look cute for a few hours.

I don’t typically post photos of my face on this blog but, I figure, if you’ve read this far, you deserve to see me! 😉

I am not sure I’ll ever put on another pair of jeans but I would like to. Would wearing shape wear or tights under the clothing make it less painful? I love wearing dresses but what do you pull out of your woredrobe when you want to dress casual and look presentable? And what if you just don’t have the spoons to shave your legs?

Natural Altenatives

Natural Altenatives

You don’t have to compromise your morals for great sex! Ultimate sexual gratification can be reached safely and naturally without causing harm to the environment. Sexual exploration and experimentation is not all about spandex and leather or latex and silicon. Those materials have their place but what if you’re allergic to latex or you’re concerned about the environment or inhumane product testing? Looking for vegan lingerie and accessories? Well, don’t worry! There are natural alternatives and humane options! Did you know that coconut oil makes an excellent personal lubricant?! It has even been proven to help fight yeast infections. It is safe for all types of intercourse but do not use it with latex condoms. The coconut oil causes the latex to break down and become weaker.

Tips for Using Coconut Oil as Lubricant

  • Coconut oil is solid at room temperature. Microwave it for just a few seconds to liquify it or just rub a little between your palms.
  • Use with latex-free condoms only. Polyurethane is best.
  • Antibacterial and anti-fungal.
  • Available at the grocery store. Even if you buy organic, its still likely to be cheaper than your usual lubricant.
  • It can be used as massage oil as well.
  • It absorbs into the skin and leaves no sticky residue.
  • Alleviates vaginal dryness and helps fight yeast infections.
  • It’s moisturizing.
  • Safe for all types of intercourse.

Latex-Free and Natural Condoms

Many people have ethical concerns and latex allergies. There are a plethora of alternatives and most of them work pretty damn well! Many popular brands make latex free condoms. Lamb skin condoms are made out of sheep intestines. Obviously, these are not vegan. Many people like the feel of these condoms but they do not protect against many sexually transmitted diseases including, HIV. They do protect against pregnancy. Female condoms are typically constructed from polyurethane plastic. They prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. All of the big name condom companies offer latex-free condoms. They are made from either polyisoprene or polyurethane. It is very important not to use coconut oil or other oil based lubricants with polyisoprene. Use silicon or water based lubricants with these condoms because polyisoprene is derived from latex. So, it behaves like latex but without causing allergies.
