I know. It sounds very incredulous. My med was seemingly harmless also - phenylpropanolamine - in so many OTC meds. Back then they had no idea it caused problems until people like me, usually young females, starting having brain bleeds. I had never taken any product with it it in before but I got swimmers ear from scuba diving and the doctor told me to take it. Almost a month later I was becoming semi-normal again. I knew it was the med. I'm lucky to be alive as everyone insisted that the med was safe and I would be okay. Thank God my hubby threw a fit and said, There is something bad wrong with my wife and took me to E.R. They didn't have a clue at first but a savvy doctor figured out that there was something wrong with my brain and that it had to be from that med. When I was better he told me to never take it again and I haven't. Later on the brain bleeds from it became well documented. That doctor and I had many discussions about having to be all alone on the side of being right while everyone else is on the wrong side. He and I were vindicated and I threw it up into my former doctor's face all the time.

What a brave stance on Christmas!! My parents, while still living, opted to give grandkids savings bonds at Christmas towards future university expenses -- which we thought was great. But one of the in-laws objected bitterly . . . !!!! insisted gifts had to be given. How about the children's parents: have they been supportive of this decision?

Thanks for sharing. We did discuss it last night and he apologized. Said he is emotionally drained. I am exhausted. Not sleeping too much and no appetite. I am eating soup
