Update from Roslyn

Roslyn has given me leave to let you know that she hasn't abandoned the fandom, but has little opportunity to be online. I think most of you know that Roslyn has very severe physical reactions to pesticides and pollutants from harsh cleaning products, etc. She had been feeling increasingly ill at her last place of residence, and suspected pesticides and indoor pollutants, but was repeatedly assured that that couldn't be the case. She collapsed on July 30, and subsequent testing revealed that, indeed, she was suffering from pesticide poisoning both from inside her bedroom and from the supposedly organic farm nearby. She's currently living out of her vehicle and, when she's strong enough, she has been looking for another place to live since. Her stories are, unfortunately, grounded in her life experience.

Please hold a good thought for her, and a prayer wouldn't go amiss.

That's terrible. I noticed she wasn't commenting on stories, but a lot of people seem to be in and out with summer stuff going on. I hope she can find a suitable place quickly. If that farm is claiming to be organic, they have to be tested. They'll be in big trouble for claiming organic produce and then using pesticides.

Please pass along my best wishes for feeling better soon.
