 There is an option missing "I know they are vaccinated and it concerns me!"     My husband is forced to be vaccinated by the military. Some of these vaccines shed and the military is known to give vaccines that courts have told them they can not force on soldiers anyway. (Think anthrax) and it is a concern. It really bothers my husband as well. I have heard and said myself many times times "He gets vaccinated, we get sick." Sometimes he gets sick too! Sure enough,...
              As we are in an umbrella school that is mostly unschoolers, everyone tends to do their own thing. The ones who review our end of year report are unschoolers as well so I can certainly ask them. Mothering is so much bigger than the umbrella so I thought to ask here first though. The umbrella doesn't really seem to care how things are reported, just that they are, and that they look good. I am trying to make sure I make my daughters effort look good and am...
 So far, so good. I use this machine every day and it helps dull the pain and helps me get a bit more function. I have been ill with a virus and it seems to have made my fibromyalgia so very much worse however and I have had days where I can't walk at all though the TENS machine helps enough that I can stumble to the bathroom at least, though there are still many tears in doing so.     I have worn out the pads already and have had to order new ones. I have had to...
 The tracking is sadly required and so doing it well means it is beneficial to our homeschooling as it keeps others from wanting to take away our rights to do so.     I wish I didn't find it so difficult with the less than common looking learning. Finding the right vocabulary to list things is part of the issue in my part I think. I wouldn't have thought that my daughter explaining the difference in violence in our country with 50% of the worlds guns and other parts...
 Does anyone have experience with TENS machines? Would you tell me about it? I have fibromyalgia, and it is getting terrible as of late. (I am going gluten free this year to see if this helps at all though my Dr and specialist do not think it will.)     I received a TENS machine as a holiday gift this year and have been using it a few times a day, it stings at the mid-level settings and I am not sure if this is normal or part of my condition. I can say the stinging...
  My oldest daughter loves to read the news, I think in part because it gives her things to talk about with many of the adults in her life. She does this for about a half hour a day.     My issue as it often is with such things, is that I am not sure how to record this for her state required tracking. Do I put it down in social studies? Or Reading?     I really loath having to nit pick tracking like this.... 
   I am an Army wife. I don't like guns, will never have one, and never allow one in my home.     However I am very schooled in the constitution and while the founding fathers could not have pictured automatic weapons, the core of what they wanted, was to let citizens have the ability to defend themselves, against their own government if needed. With government having these weapons I do not think it is a stretch to say that the founding fathers would have supported...
 Thank you for posting thing. I think it is interesting how many want to blame the unvaccinated or say they contribute to this at least, don't ask the better question. Why is the vaccine not working?     http://abcnews.go.com/Health/whooping-cough-vaccine-protection-short-lived/story?id=17221497#.UNYw8m-ofng    We found that the effectiveness of the vaccine wanes 42 percent on average each year during the five years after the fifth dose," said Dr. Nicola...
 Keep in mind on Fort Hood and all military bases, soldiers are not allowed to have guns in their barracks or on post homes or in their cars on post. Soldiers have to keep fire arms locked up in their units arms room so the only ones that had guns on that post was the man who was not supposed to, and the military police. (Or soldiers going to the range)     One must think about just why soldiers can't have fire arms in their own homes on post thought right? We send...
 Just an update, the break was really bad, she needed a plate and pins put in. She was able to get out of the boot last month though! She still is on orders to not run and no jumping but we hope right after the new year the Dr will clear her for those things as well.     Sadly she has to get surgery next fall to get the plate and pins out so will go through the recovery for it again. She knows what to expect this time though and can plan for it.     Having...
