my children

Yesterday would have been a good day for someone to remind me that children are a blessing.

Amber and Nikki went at it all day long. I was waiting for them to start punching each other, but that did not happen. The last time they came to blows I made them go fight in the front yard. If they are going to act like white trash then at least everyone could watch the fight.

Ryan's teacher still can't figure out how to give him a calculator. So I had to call the principal again. Once again it blows my mind, there are only five children in his class!

Then we got a call from someone at the school asking us if we needed help with some Christmas gifts for Ryan. I listened to this lady babble on. I understand Ryan needs new shoes and he is getting them for Christmas. I just got him new shoes 2 months ago. I am so sorry that my child is hard on his shoes. Yes Ryan does have several winter sweatshirts and a coat. The problem is he wears them to school and never brings them home. So I had to tell Ryan that if he did not bring home all of his crap that he could not play video game or watch t.v. for two day's. That is the only way we can get through to him. We have to take away the two things that can do. I swear if you have not raised a handi cap child you have no clue what goes on behind closed doors.

Today I have to take Nikki to school and go pay my car registration. I am going to go look for a pair of shoes for Ryan, and then it is back home to do the same old routine.

Amber is not feeling well today, so she has a doctors appointment today at 2. This poor child is just so miserable.

As for me. I have taken some radical steps as far as my health goes. My friend Deb told me that she had been praying for me and that she just knows that I am not going in for surgery. I had to laugh.

I laughed because for a while now I have been really thinking and researching all of my options. Which are very limited when you have no insurance and no money. I went to the hippy store because I needed some more herbs and some ear candles. I got to talking with the lady and she suggested that I use raw wheat grass, on top of juicing and everything else I am doing.

So when I was over at Deb's the other night I had to laugh at what she said. I told her that I did not want to have surgery. I do not want to have to take hormone replacement's for the rest of my life and that I was looking into other options.

As it turns out one of the pastors uses wheat grass because he had cancer and he did not want to go through chemotherapy. HMMM.... I have also stopped taking my birth control pills.

I have been on a strict Herb regiment for almost two months now. I have been juicing for a couple week, and I just went off my birth control a few days ago. I am feeling so much better.

I know that most people do not believe in the healing power of food, and herbs, but I do. Now all I have to do is avoid this subject with my mother. Which will be very hard since she will be here for Christmas. i do trust my mother as far as my medical goes and she knows all about any drug. But my mom does not believe in the healing power of herbs and food. This should be interesting.

The never ending pile of laundry is waiting for me.

I do believe in food and herbs as healing. Just as food can be bad for you, some can be very good for you. I'm glad you are feeling better. Take it easy.

I am so happy that you are into herbs for healing!! I may have told you that I started studying healing herbs since the 1970's, and I have a great mistrust for 'witch doctors' and all their mistakes and arrogance. The smarter you are the better off you and your family will be.

poor Amber; I hope she feels better and the doctor helps her when she has her visit this afternoon

I'm not sure about herbs; haven't done much research in them; but I know you are wise so I trust your judgment

I get it raising a special needs child; I can't tell you how much we lost with coats, jackets, gloves, etc over the years.

I think it is neat that your mom is coming up to visit for Christmas, I know you two sometimes don't see eye to eye, but visits I think are special

I'll keep praying for you - I believe in what you're doing. It doesn't work for everything but I know it can work miracles, same with the power of prayer. Maybe between the two you'll be one of the lucky ones!

OMg - I understand the missing coats = every year we go through this. I just found out that Brian doesnt have a winter coat becuase Danny has been wearing his lol. So, I have to buy Brian a new one because he's too tall if it fits Danny as well as it does.
The fun never ends huh? I hope Amber feels better fast! Good luck with the herbs!



Melissa said...

I believe both in the healing power of herbs and the healing power of God so I would say you're on the right track!

And yes, I know exactly what you mean about Ryan losing coats and sweatshirts... Austin does the same thing and heaven help me if I try to get him to wear a decent pair of shoes! He will wear only one pair... wear them every day... no matter how many pairs he has... and only when they fall completely apart and I throw them away will he wear anything else!

I'm glad you are feeling better. I hope Amber she feels better soon

I think people have to take responsibility for whatever they decide to do with their health, but I can applaud your thinking here, because it really is best I think to keep all your parts. They have functions we may not even know about, and any replacement estrogen has had side effects. I hung on to my uterus through two years of bleeding and much pressure to get a hysterectomy, but when I was able to control the stress in my life better the bleeding slowed and finally stopped, and I think I am better off than my sisters who were persuaded to have surgery. I think doctors are knife happy! Gerry

My friend Holly was dying of Lupus and the Drs wanted to do all this radical treatment on her. She started seeing a Naprapath and eating/drinking all health foods, herbs EVERYTHING....didn't have to take the 1st treatment & has been in remission for 14 years.
