Once I developed back pain so severe that I could barely get in and out of the car. It hurt for me to change positions while I slept. Needless to say, I was miserable.
My doctor recommended physical therapy sessions. They worked. For a few days. And then I’d have to go back again to make the pain disappear. Taking pain medication was out of the question for me. I thought, “I’m only in my 30s. I can’t be having physical therapy sessions once a week for the rest of my life.”
Fortunately, I didn’t have to.

Have you been thinking of switching to cloth menstrual pads, but not sure if you’ll like it?
I have, for some time now. And now that I’ve been having skin reactions to paper menstrual pads, I’ve been thinking about it even more.
If you’re like me, you want to reduce your risk of buying something new. Most of the time, I make sure the vendor has a good money-back guarantee. But for a product like cloth menstrual pads, this may be impossible when you’ve washed and used the pads.
Well, now we have the next best thing.
Lunapads menstrual pads is now offering us a way to try out one of their pads for the low-risk cost of $5. More specifically, first-time customers can get one sample Lunapad pantyliner for free, but you do have to cover the cost of shipping and handling, which is $5.
If you like it and decide to buy Lunapads, you will get a $5 coupon towards your purchase. That means you essentially get the $5 refunded.
