More hard water issues.
Yep what SE said, I have hard water too and it sucks, luckily I have a water softener to be put in soon yay!
Everyone has good points, they do. Me personally I've been poor and have struggled all my life as a child and now to give my children the necessities they need and food in their bellies. My husband works his butt off and I stay home with the kids because we cannot afford daycare...would I cut my hair for some piece of mind? Absolutely, it's may hair and after everything is scored away I could restart the journey, for being able to accomplish one dream, by sacrificing another (the dreadlocks being the "another) when knowing you can re-accomplish that 2nd dream is well worth it to me, no...money is not everything....no you shouldn't have to change and hide who you are...but money does help and it is powerful sadly, in the end though only you know what's right for you! <3 Namaste.
This is MUCH like what I've learned in this process!
I am so sorry to hear all of this Panterra, I've been thinking of you. I don't know how much help I can be all the way over here in Ohio but I will gladly be praying for you and will always be an ear to listen and if there IS anything I can do, you better believe I will jump at the opportunity. I'ma shoot you a message on FB!
