I am considering moving to Gulfport and am wondering if anyone who suffers from dry eye syndrome can tell me if it has helped to alleviate or clear up your eye issues living so close to the gulf? Also, what is your veterans home like? I am a CNA and can transfer from one vets home to whichever one I want.

PNightbird, I really want to leave the Minnesota cold winters. I have dry eye syndrome and my eyes often feel so gritty. and hurt alot. How is the humidity there? My eye doctor said AZ was out that I should look to the east. I like the idea of being on the outskirts of a big town (big would be 40,000 and up) and I saw your post about Saucier. You would recommend that over Gulfport? Also, how often have there been hurricanes there? Thanks for any information you give me.

Hey There!

Thanks for the message..and I hope I can help. I also suffer from dry eyes..but the thing is..even though MS is a VERY humid and hot state..I spend 99.9% of my time indoors in very cold air conditioning..as I do badly in heat..so..since the air conditioning unit is pulling out moisture from the air to keep things cool..the heat and humidity doesn't help my eyes at all. And since you mentioned being a CNA in another post..you will be working indoors as well so it probably won't help you either. What does help my eyes is regular ingestion of Omega 3 capsules with food..increasing my water intake..decreasing my caffeine intake..and using these wonderful eye drops Joan Collins mentioned that she uses called Systane. They are very thick..almost gel like in quality..and the formula I would recommend from them (they have several) is the Long Lasting one.

As for where to live..it really depends on what you want. My husband and I (married gay couple here) love the outdoors and a rural setting..not only for the beauty..but for the privacy as well. We are in Saucier..which is just outside Gulfport..so driving into Gulfport is about a 10 minute drive or faster depending on how fast you go. And then about another 10 minutes to the beach and casinos. So for us..this is the perfect spot..as we live a quiet life in the DeSoto National Forest..yet can hop in the car for food or entertainment and get there in about 15-20 minutes depending on traffic..which is rarely bad here. Also..crime is virtually non-existant here in Saucier (trailer parks don't count..lol) as it is well known most of us here..including us..have firearms and use the shooting range often. And home prices tend to be less than in Gulfport..and you get more house for the money. Now..if you would rather live in a more populated city with an artsy feel to it and close to the beach..then I would suggest Ocean Springs. But of course..you will pay higher housing prices. And we would never live in Gulfport as it is too congested for our taste with too much crime. As for hurricanes..Katrina was the last big one here..and those are very rare..as the last big one before Katrina was Camille in 1969. But of course..with climate change being so bad..you never know. However..the only damage we received here in Saucier was a few roof tiles missing. Not so for those living on the other side of the railroad tracks in Gulfport, Biloxi and Ocean Springs.

Let me know if you read this and I'll be happy to answer any more questions. Take care!

How many times are you going to post this? Are you going to pack your bags and move based on what someone says on a message board?

Be aware that Mississippi is consistently ranked among THE WORST PLACES to be a black, a woman, or a child. All 'services' are rock-bottom/slashed-to-the-bone in what they offer. And, if your child happens to get into trouble, even by mistake, THIS is what awaits a poor child in trouble, in Mississippi:

Notice that the top (and most depressing) photo is from Harrison County, Mississippi https://www.wired.com/2012/04/photog...nile-lock-ups/

And, topping Mother Jones' magazine's 'Worst Prisons' list:
Walnut Grove Youth Correctional Facility (Leake County, Mississippi) https://www.motherjones.com/politics...y-mississippi/


And, later on.... https://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/16/u...nut-grove.html

And conditions for the poor who are ill and/or elderly, are similarly disturbing.

GG is right, MS is a terrible place to be poor. As you go south, states have fewer and fewer social programs, with MS likely having the least support programs of any states. If you want to give your child the best chance for a successful future, go elsewhere. If you have no support system here (friends or family), even worse.

If it's not brickpatio or someone from the area then take any unnecessary long winded ' eloquent ' essay by a non residents with a grain of salt.
