I’ve finally gotten all the salicylate free items I need to begin guaifenesin therapy for fibromyalgia. I plan to begin guaifenesin therapy by the end of this month. It’s taken forever to start guaifenesin because I have so little spending money to buy the products I need to replace. I have to wait until the end of the month to ensure our needs are met before purchasing wants like new cosmetics, soaps, and shampoos. At the end of February, I had $50 left in the budget so I placed an order from Ulta.
The hardest products to replace have been foundation and hair supplies. Prior to going sal-free, I was following the curly girl hair styling method which involved using all natural hair products and avoiding silicone. Now, since I’m going sal-free, the only curly hair products available are full of silicones.

My hair has thinned out at random a few times since I began experiencing autoimmune symptoms so I can only assume thinning hair a symptom of RA/fibro.
