Just to let you all know, Chaplets & Chotkis is going out of business, for a SECOND time, and this time for good! I regret having sold my url a few years ago, because when I reopened with the new url http://www.chaplets-chotkis.com, I no longer had the search engine standing that I had with my old url. I have been constantly lowering prices to less than it cost me for the supplies, in an attempt to make SOME sales rather than NONE!

After a great deal of prayer and soul-searching, I have decided to leave up my site for the next couple of months, but not renew it when my current webhosting plan expires at the end of September.

Thank you all for the support you've given me over the years, especially Alex, who helped me get the whole thing started in the beginning, and gave me information on various forms of prayer beads I had never heard of, like the Mequteria.

Thank you all!
Tammy

Very sorry to hear that, Tammy! It's like the end of an era . . .

How are you, otherwise?

Your humble beadsman,

Alex

Dear Alex,
Thank you for asking. Frankly, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis about 10 years ago. Since that time, I’ve been coasting along, doing things my usual way, and choosing not to use the medications out there because I don’t believe in them. The current way of treating MS is to attack the autoimmune system so that it doesn’t attack the nerve cells, and my attitude toward that is, “What, tell me I have a chronic disease and then take away my remaining health by taking away my immune system? No, thanks!” So anyway, I’ve been doing just fine until the past few months, when I seem to have taken a turn for the worse. I can’t sleep well because I have to use the restroom every hour – or sometimes every 15 minutes! And I don’t have the dexterity to do beading any more, either. Even typing is a major chore – and it’s the biggest part of my job!

So here I go, trying to find a different direction than beading to apply my interests.

In Christ,
Tammy

Tammy I will keep you in my prayers. I have been on Rebif for approximately 8-10 years now. I have not had another relapse in that time.
