I'm 31. I'm also a mother. I generally work out everyday and eat a fairly healthy diet for the most part. I also have a bad habit of being a light smoker when I get stressed out but I was working on quitting. As I write this, I haven't had a cig in almost 2 weeks. I seem to always be on a quest to improve myself in one way or another.
When the news broke on September 18th 2020 that Ruth Ginsburg had died, I got physically ill and sobbed. It was like losing my grandmother all over again. Honestly, I'm still not over it. I never met her but wish I had gotten the chance to.
I remember when I thought that living in the countryside was safer than living in the city. After all I had pretty much lived in the country side my entire life. I had very few neighbors. Definitely no neighborhood kids to play with.
Just a few weeks ago life was relatively normal here in the United States. The stores were always stocked with food and supplies and generally when you went shopping they weren't out of almost everything. Not anymore. Now you more than likely will have to make trips to several stores before getting everything you need and even then you probably still won't find everything that you need.
More than 15 million people struggle with an alcohol use disorder in the United States, but less than eight percent of those receive treatment. More than 65 million Americans report binge drinking in the past month, which is more than 40 percent of the total of current alcohol users. These are the facts when it comes to alcohol.
I'm fortunate that my skin has behaved as long as it has. I'm glad I started taking care of it when I was young. I shudder to think how bad it might look now if I didn't start babying it when I did. Skin is strong, but it is also fragile.
