Seems I can't get my cholesterol "under 200" for over 20 years now. I do all the right things.

Plus the last two years had me reaching for a lot of comfort foods during isolation.

I have to take a statin drug for cholesterol. Our body makes some of it, I think. Maybe too much?

Yes I think it does. I also know it's essential for cell building, just not too high of a level....And the "good " kind, the HDL, is what you want to go up, not the LDL. I know I've eaten a lot of stuff that's not good for LDL, but I can't win here. Sodium is also necessary but not a lot of course.

I know I gained a lot of weight too since 2020.....I've eaten just the whites of eggs thinking that would help the LDL but alas,no.

Found out the plant was poison hemlock & was saving the seeds from & not Queen Ann's Lace

I got into stinging nettle a few years ago when looking through the field in back of my farm for the 10 foster goats I was keeping that escaped....not so funny. I was so focused on finding the goats that I didn't pack mud from my creek on the stinging on my hand. By the time I went to bed that night, my hand & arm up to my elbow looked like a huge balloon. Took weeks to get that hand & arm back to normal just taking antihistamines. Still not good at ID'ing stinging nettle

Have always packed mud on any plant irritation. Mud dries & soaks up the oils & draws out the poison. Learned that from my grandpa when I was a kid & spent summer Saturdays fishing in the creeks & rivers around where they lived in Kansas.

I had poison ivy from the farm I grew up in. I didn't know there were so many plants that shouldn't be touched--and eaten.

Generalized or "blanket statements", like anything else like that out there. Who are they to say I have "less stress"??? They don't know my life! I'm not "more confident" but I'm "more jaded". (LOL, can't you tell by my comments?)

They forgot to say "more cynical." Didn't say how being trusting can lead to being a victim of a scam, but that happens to younger people too.

At least this explains my moustache getting harder to keep at bay. Or why I have to shave my legs more often, not that there's anywhere to go for people to see them.

Family Dollar issues nationwide recall of more than 400 products

Oh, my. I rarely shop there, and now I see why I probably shouldn't.

Me either, just once or twice years ago. There’s a lot of junky looking stuff there and the atmosphere was so depressing like with lighting, wall colors, etc.
