Hey Gramma who is near to my age. We seem to have some things in common. My hubby is also Korean Vet. Marine. I would have given the same advice for the burns. I hold to natural cures in everything possible. I am 77 and healthy and still holding a full-time job. I take vitamins and herbs after doing the research on them. Vit C & E are essential to good health. Throw in D3 and you’re pretty well protected from nasty bugs. (I enjoyed meeting you via your profile page. Wish more people would create them).
Thanks for your thanks for my son, your good wishes in general, and appreciation of the nutritional advice. My late husband of 44 years suffered severely from Korean War induced PTSD. Eventually what he did to our marriage caused me to develop PTSD. I then spent years learning how to improve/protect my own physical and mental health, and eventually discovered/developed what would help him too.
I currently take part in a free self-help group of people who use the intense emotional expressive methods for stress relief and emotional healing popularized by Arthur Janov in his best known book “The Primal Scream”. Eventually I received training in a related process and saw clients for 10 years. Several of us would really like to help with the PTSD problem that has been engendered by Iraq and Afghanistan. We meet monthly in Northern Virginia. Please contact me here or In Private if you or someone you know is interested, either in learning how to help, or in being helped. Often spouses can learn how to help their suffering loved one, as I did with my suffering husband. Sometimes the sufferer has tried so hard to push down bad feelings that they are unwilling/unable to get help themselves.
Grandma, I read your profile page too. My husband and I bought some land in WV near Baker in Hardy Co. Is that anywhere near where you are?
