Shoot me an email or PM and let me know how you are, your plans, etc., and I'll do the same in response.
I'm reluctant to offer much advice regarding borax. I have used both forms, and noticed very little difference with the tri-boron. Borax probably did have some kind of effect because it made me seriously ill for weeks after ingesting some once. But I'm not a good source -- I say this because, 1) I tried it only once, and 2) my reaction could be attributed any number of other causes, and 3) keep in mind how easily I became nauseated and my general health status. It's hard for me to keep anything down on a good day -- so simply because I felt ill for two weeks following my borax experience suggests pretty much nothing.
Make any sense? Gina is great and I know she'd be happy to guide you. Trapper also. Post on the VWT and see what you score. Let me know how you fare.
