Recently added to the site:

September 2016: I'm redoing TeriLaFlesh.org page. It's still super new, and it will have all my artsy stuff I've done on there. Right now I've gotten some artsy garden photos, and I'm hoping soon to put up paintings and drawings and stuff I've done too.

September 2016: I've been adding to a new recommended shampoo page. It has my most up to date shampoo recommendations (as well as why I don't recommend some products). If you wanted, you can check out the Recommended Shampoos page, then poke around at everything else if you felt like it. I'll still be making changes for a while, but at least you can finally check out new recommendations!

August 2016: I'm working on a new products page that will be more dynamic and easier to add things to. Right now it's still in a rough stage, but please come take a look if you want. It has my most up to date product recommendations. If you wanted, you can check out the Combing Conditioners page, then poke around at everything else if you felt like it. I'll still be making changes for a while, but this is like a sneak peak.

The last couple years: You might have noticed I wasn't updating the site very much for a couple years or so. I debated saying anything, then thought maybe I should explain why. Apparently I was sick. I'd been sick for years and didn't know it. It was just a thyroid issue. Nothing serious as long as it's caught. Which it wasn't until just a few weeks ago. I didn't have many physical symptoms, which is why it went on for so long. I'm vegan, so the healthy way I was eating sort of counteracted the physical symptoms. However, the one thing that did affect me was my brain got all cloudy and I couldn't do anything that required thinking. So I could walk for miles and garden, but couldn't write emails, or do anything that needed thought. But at the time I worried I'd just become stupid and there was nothing I could do about it. Then I changed doctors, and my new doctor ran a different set of tests, and my numbers were crazy off the charts high that I had a thyroid thing going on. It's easily fixable, so I'm getting better and have been working on the site again and thinking full thoughts. I tell you, I've never been so excited to find out I was sick in my life! Fixing thyroid issues are easy. Once you know you have a thyroid issue.That was probably way more information than you ever wanted, but I like to have more rather than less info, so...yeah. I'm still recovering, but man am I happy to have my brain back. I appreciate so much you hanging in there with me.
