Today was dark and depressing, cloudy after a night of steady rain. I don't mind the rain, but I hate the darkness. Couldn't paint the house, didn't want to ride, so we went to town and did some shopping. Here were my most exciting purchases:
I am so happy with my new Mustang travel mug! I bought it at Tri-State distributors, the same place where I got my Mustang playing cards. But they didn't have the nice mugs last time I was in there, just these big clunky plastic ones. Problem though - they also had drinking glasses and aluminum water bottles. Oh man, I had a hard time figuring out what to get. (Shhh, don't tell, but I think I'll sneak back and gradually collect the other things.)
The MSM is to help Bella heal her tendon. I can't afford a $60+ supplement right now. This was only $17 for a 40 day supply. What I've read suggests that a mix of glucosamine and MSM works better, but I do know that the MSM by itself is supposed to have some good effect.
Here are some tidbits of info I found online:
Reduced joint and muscle pain and inflammation - As the flexible bond between proteins, MSM aids in cell regeneration. It reduces inflammation and permits the muscles to heal. While helping to rebuild healthy cells, MSM can increase flexibility in joints and has been welcome relief to sufferers of arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, bursitis, muscle strains and tendon and ligament strains and sprains.
The Sulfur in MSM is good for all sorts of tissues including skin, joints, ligaments, and tendons Methylsulfonylmethane is a relatively new dietary supplement form of sulfur that is found in our living tissues.
MSM supports healthy connective tissues like tendons, ligaments, and muscle.
I always thought of it as a joint supplement, not a tendon supplement, but when you think about it, the problem with joints is usually in the connective tissue, so I guess it all makes sense.
Anyway, that's about all I have, for now...
