This was an eye opening piece of information for me. Until July 2010, I was a social butterfly. My home caught on fire and I couldn’t open the door, double deadbolt lock, couldn’t get key in lock. Firemen saved me but I was burned and tremendous smoke inhalation, hospitalized. I lost my 2 puppies, my home, my sense of security. When the Dr finally released me, I had nothing to wear, and nowhere to go. This was the beginning of tremendous stress as time went by. I’m still being treated for post traumatic disorder, I used to think only soldiers had that problem. I can’t prove that the fire is the cause of Raynauds in my toes, but I read an article that stated a past injury can bring this on. I have ,lost many friends, some I’ve had for over 50 years I have a picture I took of my toes, after being released from hospital, mainly because every toe was individualy wrapped due to burns and the fact that every toe was still polished, OPI will stay on no matter what. This is the second time I’ve had this. 1st time it was just my toes. This time it’s my toes and lips. Thanks for listening and posting the Article.
