Angel Soft is 2x Stronger and so am I + Giveaway!



About 10 years ago, I was on vacation in Costa Rica. I was visiting my family. We had decided to go to the beach for a few days to relax. One morning I was out in the sea just floating around and talking with my husband when I noticed a huge wave coming our way.

Because my husband was further out then I was, he had time to go under. I did not. I tried but as I went under to avoid the wave, it caught me, lifted me and slammed me down very hard. The pain was unbearable. But I was able to stand up and walk out of the ocean.

When we got back to the U.S. and I had x-rays, the doctor found I had fractured my vertebrae and my tail bone in two places. It was one of the most painful things I have ever experienced. For months, I was in pain 24/7. I was lucky I was not paralyzed but it was no fun being in so much pain.

I could not sleep. I could not stand for more than 5 minutes. I could not sit for more than 15 minutes. I had physical therapy but they could do nothing for me except try to manage my pain. I had painkillers but did not take them because I knew it was more dangerous to avoid the pain through drugs than to have the pain every day.

It got to a point where I did not know how long I could go on with the pain. I was desperate. Then one day, my sister suggested that I fly out to Los Angeles and visit her. She was dating a doctor who besides practicing Western medicine, practiced Eastern medicine.

Since I was desperate, I agreed. After a few treatments of Chinese Cupping, my pain subsided to the point where I was not in pain 24/7. I say the treatment "cured" me. My back felt new and improved after the treatments. My Western doctor said it was all in my head but I didn't care because the pain was almost all gone and I felt great.

This whole incident made me 2x stronger than I was. It taught me that I could endure unbearable pain and survive. It taught me that whatever comes my way, I can handle. Throughout the ordeal, I learned that what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.

This brings me to a new and improved product, Angel Soft bath tissue. It is also 2x stronger than ever. New Angel Soft with Softshield layers is designed to hold up better when wet. It is also strong yet soft. My favorite part of Angel Soft is that it is a great value.

Because Angel Soft is 2x stronger that mean that you need less. A little goes a long way and that always makes me happy. I have to keep my budget in check and with Angel Soft being stronger than ever, I find that I do not need to run to the store as often to buy toilet paper. Thus, this really helps my bottom line. Pun intended.

If you want a toilet paper that is strong and good for your budget, you need to try Angel Soft. You can download a coupon to help you save $0.25 off of any Angel Soft Bath Tissue Product. What a great deal!

And better yet, I have a wonderful Angel Soft product prize pack that includes (1) $25 Target gift card and one (1) Angel Soft 2x Stronger pack with 4 rolls. You can get a lot of toilet paper for $25!! If you would like to win, just enter on the Rafflecopter widget below. This is a short giveaway so enter soon!!

  12. When I was 12, my dad had to work out of town, and my little sister got really sick. She was hospitalized & my mom had to go be with her, and I stayed home & took care of my little brother, who was 5, all by myself. It helped me know that I could do things and help take care of someone besides myself.
