Very glad you're feeling better and making awesome food again, Kathy.

And what do you think of this?  She is taking it and says it seems to help.

Generally speaking, there's less info on hyper than hypo, though I'm not sure about Brownstein's book, having not read it. The herbal looks interesting... Makes me consider buying it for my sister, who has Graves'. And it sounds, from meds, like hyper rather than hypo. There is a nutritional protocol on ithyroid for both.

YUM Kathy.  Your posts always make me so hungry.  eat.gif  Glad your nausea is gone too!

So DH and I just had a nice talk on our futures.  Somehow bag.gif DH didn't realize that I really do want to/plan to look into what type of professional healthcare something to be when the kids are old enough.  I first fully explained my concern about, "what if we have another kid, and then I'm 40 and we decide we want one more and that's TWINS?" fears (which are separate from the "what if I can't ever get pregnant again?" fears that I mostly ignore), and then talked more about timelines for kids and further education for me and a consulting business (doing whatever I've learned to do by then).  I guess I haven't sat down with him to talk about really long-term goals and dreams, not for a long time (back when the goals/dreams were buy a house and have kids, which we've done).  And he doesn't really have any dreams now, but he thinks that he'll start feeling better once we're solidly, consistently eating better (like before Thanksgiving, which was our downfall).  And then he says he'll have the energy to dream--depressing, really, but better to know than not, and have a plan.  So tomorrow, real food, tasty low carb stuff for him and less sugar for me.  And by April, he should be doing pretty good.  Even before we talked, he'd planned to go for a walk, he says he feels better when he walks regularly, so that'll be part of the routine too--I need to manage time well so that he can fit it in easily. 

 

Anyway... good time of year to stop and think.  And I tried to plant the seed for him to consider making a treasure map/vision board in April.  I still like mine--haven't seen amazing things yet, but overall good progress (better than if I hadn't made a map?  not sure on that, but I still like it).

Sounds like a good talk/plan. I still never looked into that treasure map thing. Have I told you how much I love 13yo moody girls? I should get her some more flower essences. Those were the only thing that helped. Today I'm making a new roast chicken recipe (new for me, one of Julia's with only a couple of minor modifications). DH just rearranged/cleaned DS's room. Now it's on to DD1's room (maybe, depends whether she stops crying or not). She said she wants DD2 in with her, and turn DD2's room into a playroom/library. We'll see how that goes.

I hope the sleep has been better since this. Sorry about the cane sugar and beans. That sucks. Have you found a way to get balanced nutrition in her (sorry, I'm really bad at remembering everyone's details)? Ack, I can't begin to imagine how stressful this must be for you.

I'm feelin' ya on lack of sleep. I've had one decent night since Christmas Eve.

And yes, I agree. Red dye IS evil... That's the one that, when DS1 ate it when he was little, caused him to think he could fly, throw himself down stairs, and attempt to jump off a 3rd story balcony. Fun times. (not)



 jaw.gif how scary!


 

 

One good thing about the stomach flu is that I didn't gain any holiday weight. hehe 

I can see Ds1's ribs, though, and he's never been this thin. Gotta get some fat in him- his appetite is slowly getting back to normal. He hasn't had much dairy the last week or so, and hasn't had any poop accidents, and only got red ears once (I noticed after a banana, but it would be too wierd if both kids were sensitive to banana). The rash be his mouth has stayed pretty consistent.

 

Oh, and you remember how ds2 was referred to an allergist? We're on a waiting list- it will be about 12 mos. I asked his doc to refer us to someone not at Children's, and she didn't listen. A year? Gah, Thanks for nothing. I'm going to try to find another family doc, but that is MUCH easier said than done around here.

 

We've been giving ds2 bananas, because his diarrhea lasted so long, and I was freaked about him getting dehydrated, so we did sort of the BRAT diet. It seems to have worked- at least the diarrhea stopped. His eczema did get a little worse, which is consistent with all the other suspected banana reactions (even eating a lot of banana). Dp gave him a bite of his egg sandwich today duh.gif Seriously dp? He said something like- "but it was a teeny teeny bite- he probably didn't even get any egg."  And he put cheese on ds1's sandwich - "but it was a really thin slice." Sigh.

 

His sleep (ds2) has been awful. I don't know whether to blame it on him being sick or food. Something has got to give, though. We did add back oranges and carrots- maybe one or both are a problem. I'm stopping food journaling for a bit (I'm getting so sick of it), and just keeping out the list of suspects. I ave really high hopes that we got out all the eczema triggers, but we're missing a poop/sleep food (unless it is oranges or carrots).

For anyone who hasn't visited the site yet (if you're ok with some profanity) check out damnyouautocorrect.com.

 

I am way low-tech, my phone has number keys and that's about it, so I haven't experienced the joy of sending text messages via phone and having autocorrect software totally hack my meaning, but seriously, I'm laughing til I cry.  To keep this on-topic--anger (excess anger), frustration, impatience--TCM says they're all manifestations of liver stress, and laughter and joy are good for the liver, they actually help it work better.  And spring is liver season, liver imbalances are more obvious in the spring (wonder if that's where the spring fever/rowdiness in school kids comes from).  But hey--laughing til your stomach hurts is just fun. 

 

I'm trying to start some new good habits (for months I've popped into Mindful Home Management and lurked a bit, cause I need help here).  I'm trying to instill habits of: getting the cleaned/dried laundry put away by the end of the day, and spending just 15 mins each day tidying/organizing (separate from regular cleaning, which happens irregularly around here).  DH and I have been productive and happy today--given his general mood, this is good.  And the kitchen is almost not-scary.  orngbiggrin.gif

 

DS is still peeing extra at night, that had been such a nice trend, not sure how/when it's going to get back to where it was.  I ordered the enuresis remedy from the 1-800 homeopathy site, it should arrive soon, I'm going to see if that helps.  I hope it has dosing instructions on the label, there were none on the website. 

 

Quiet time is almost over, I should make some progress on laundry and then do a bit in the kitchen.  If I could get this much done every day, wow, our house would rock. 

 

post #749 of 770

deva- DD's just eating lamb, few veggies, and honey now... so yeah, not horrible nutrition but I'm sure we're lacking in a few places.

 

That is INSANE to wait a year for an allergist appointment.  And GAH! about your DP.  That's super frustrating.

 

Tanya- that site is hilarious.  I sat here for an hour one night with tears streaming down my face, DP thought I had totally lost it until he started reading over my shoulder.  orngtongue.gif

 

 

Wanted to get some thoughts... speaking of DD's lack of balanced nutrition... I really feel like she's eating too much meat, and needs a good carb source.  When we did the bean trial, before they started bothering her, she was sleeping SOOOO good.  And I've noticed that pattern other times that we've added carbs to her diet.  I think the poor kid is really hungry, but she's not very good at vocalizing.  And since her scope, she's not too interested in veggies.  So her diet right now is probably 80% lamb, with a few carrots, broccoli, and the occasional kohlrabi thrown in.  (Wow- I've never really thought about that until typing it out.  That's kind of crazy.)  I'm half-heartedly considering if we should start trialing elemental formulas to supplement her diet with.  I really, really don't want to.... but I'm running out of options.  It would be great if I could just nurse her forever and give her those extra nutrients, but 1) it will be a month or two before I have milk again, and 2) I just don't think I can go back to that restricted diet, as much as I want to.  greensad.gif  Of course, I might not have a choice once this baby comes!  sigh...

post #750 of 770

I have been 24hrs pain free. joy.gif

 

 

I really wish that those that are pg with a baby to be born soon, have only healthy babies that can eat everything and if they do react, to only a few foods.goodvibes.gif

 

My girls are being hyper in the big girls room but they are having fun, so I'm not stopping them. lol

 

 

I also need to get the cleaning bug. I'm a horrible house cleaner. I have found energy today to clean my room and change the arrangment of where to put some furniture. I now have a space for the baby's bed, either a playpen or crib. Still haven't decided. I think for now, it will be a playpen with the bassinet part and then if I find that the baby sleep well in there, I may change to a crib just because of the easier access to p/u or put in the baby. The house still needs alot of cleaning to do. :( ugh

 

DD3 is still reacting a bit as her tummy is still a bit swollen. I haven't done much as i've been trying to rest as much as I can because of the kidney stones. So dh has been feeding her and he's a bit more into carbs than I am. I try to feed her more of a balance meals than him.

post #751 of 770

At least you have some protein and veggies. I think if it were me (and I'm definitely not as educated about all this as you and others are!) I'd really consider trying the formula. I don't know for sure that I'd do it, but...

I might take him to the walk in clinic close to us. The wait can be a few hours to see a doc, but they are generally really good with referrals. Plus, there's one doc there that I love- as natural minded as I'd think a doc can get. It's a guy- I usually get wierded out and uncomfotable around men- even doctors- and I'm really comfortable with him.

 

And speaking of dp (and eggs eyesroll.gif ), the egg was at about 11am. J's cheeks are red and rashy (they've been good for a few days), and I'm seeing more bumps on his elbows, and possibly his belly (there were already some bumps). So yeah. I'm not calling it a fail yet, but it's looking that way. The last time ds had egg (mayo on a sandwich- that dp gave to him) it was about 6 hours later that I noticed  his eczema was worse.

Dp agrees that food is a trigger, and that we should figure it out, and remove the foods. He just doesn't get it, I think, that "a little bit" can cause problems. And he doesn't know how to read labels, though since the mayo/sandwich thing, I thought he was getting better.

So it could be the carrots or the orange or the egg or the cheese, right? Or were those two different children?

If wishes were horses, we'd have eggs the size of horses. No that's not the right quote. But I keep wishing DS could get eggs back.

 

One of our neighbors during the summer is like that. He'll say well it's got "a little of" this or that. His brother next door totally gets it, which is funny because the one who doesn't get it is a science teacher. You'd think it would make sense to him. And his best friend has a child with many IgE allergies with epi-pens. And he always looks at me quizzically like "why won't you eat my food?" Yet, his wife buys rice milk to have on hand when my kids visit them. I can't figure out if people just don't want to understand it or if they really just don't get it.

 Yeah, I hear you about moody girls, but mine is only 10 (11 in March)!  For moodiness, have you tried B6 with her?  I think one of the most noticible, remarkable improvements in mood for my DD has been the addition of B6  - it REALLY has helped her moods smooth out, and she  doesn't  get/stay so upset.  Let me tell you, what a joy she has been to be around lately (for the most part; she is a kid after all!).  We've really have a very enjoyable winter break!  Have I told y'all how much I've love spending time with my family orngbiggrin.gif?

When I was a teen (on depo) I was depressed, and b6 helped tremendously. I'm sure your dd isn't on depo, but I'm sure it's useful for more than that. lol.
And I've been meaning for a while to give you a big hug2.giffor all you've been going through. I was gone for a while and missed the details, so I didn't know how to "butt in," but I figured now is as good a time as any to tell you that I've been thinking of you and still am.

It could be the carrots or orange. Oh wouldn't it be fabulous if I get this figured out and get to actually sleep at night!! The egg was this morning, and cheese is a different child. Actually, wheat and dairy are the two things I'm relatively sure are safe for ds2.
 

I was reading today about foods that are cross reactive with bananas, and there are a few of them that I've strongly suspected J is sensitive to. Maybe I'm on to something here. He did react to something once (a band-aid maybe?) that could have had latex, but I assumed that it was just his skin reacting to having something on it. But he's been in the hospital 3 times recently, and not reacted to anything there, so maybe latex allergy is out.

 

oops, I spoiler alerted the rest by accident. lol. Yeah, I don't get how people don't "get it" in re: allergies. Even before all this with J, if someone told me they couldn't have X, I tried to work around it. It only would have taken once of them explaining the details for me to get how serious it was, even if it did take me a while to get it enough to actually cook for them. (ds2 has a gluten sensitive friend, and while I did go out of my way to make gluten free stuff for him, I used to give him soy sauce for his rice before his mom told me that caramel color might have gluten- stuff like that. But I never once said "oh, it's just a little bite of bread.")

Actually, with the exception of wheat-free tamari, all soy sauce has wheat in it as an ingredient, not just in the hidden form of caramel colour.

 

And I realized today that there are certain words of mine which are becoming Americanized. There are several words which should have Us in them (ie senior) to spell them properly the Canadian/British way, but the U now seems out of place to me. Ahh!! orngtongue.gif

Feeling a bit better this morning. DH got up at 7am to let me take a bath (because I thought it might help me feel better... It took away the body aches, which helped with the headache, so it did help.) then I sent him back to get some more rest when I got out again. Still not feeling great though. Considering folding the (2 weeks worth of) laundry that's sitting in the kids' play kitchen area but I really would just like to lay around.

 

eta: Sorry I'm not responding to much. When I was busy cleaning, I .. uh.. was busy cleaning. And after I stopped cleaning, I just sort of crashed. eyesroll.gifredface.gif Guess I should've listened to my brain instead of trying to push it and get the kitchen done too but I so wanted to do something nice for myself (and I still never finished... of course *sigh*).

post #757 of 770

Woefully behind on chat. Was hoping someone had started a January thread and I could start fresh there. Eeek.  

 

Jess - how's her fat intake? Could you make a carrot puree and just load up on lamb fat? The key to satiation while on a lower carb diet is fat, fat, fat. Or, could you do a stew with the lamb meat & fat and the veggies all together? 


We just started GAPS yesterday afternoon. Today is the first full day of Stage one of intro (Just broth, sauerkraut juice, boiled veggies and boiled meat). Tomorrow we get to add in raw egg yolk to the broth. Aevryn has been weepy and walking around all day asking for various fruits or chocolate chips. Poor thing is way more affected than I thought she was (since she gets minimal rashes, no poop problems and is generally cheery). Lily is in the best mood she's been in, in forever. She intellectually "gets" the aim of the diet/rebooting our guts, and is excited for what it hopefully means for the future. I'm thankful that she is understanding, because otherwise this would be impossible. I'm having problems myself with the cravings. I'm eating teeny drops of honey to get me through. (You're not supposed to do full intro while pregnant or nursing anyway, I keep telling myself. But, I don't think that means fantasizing about chocolate frosting is okay...) 

 

Hope you all had nice holidays and are getting your new years off to great starts! Hope to "keep up" better now that holiday craziness is over.

Hope you're feeling better soon.  I do the same thing.  Once I get on a roll.... I just can't stop.  Then I crash and feel like crap.

I would say she's getting plenty of fat, but it's all on the meat she's eating.  

 

Speaking of.... She didn't eat any meat for dinner last night (weird day- meal times were all crazy, so she had a late lunch burger and then leftover veggies before bed)... and she slept like.a.log. All night long- just over 12 hours. Barely even moved.  What should that be telling me?  headscratch.gif

Hmmmm.... that meat is harder to digest? I'd go with it and try to make that the plan if it works though. 12 hours?!?!? That's awesome!!

 

Back is killing me today. I'm sure it was all the cleaning I did yesterday when we moved the kids' rooms around. No, I didn't do any lifting of furniture. That was all DH and DD1. But I was moving books, vacuuming, dusting, and organizing.

 

DS has been having a lot of off days lately. Just weepy and leg hurting etc. I have to start journaling again I think. I'm worried that it's the carrots... last night was beef, carrot, white sweet potato stew. I used veggie broth and V-8 (no citric acid in the store brand I use). He had 3 bowls last night, and one for lunch at school today. Last night he said his leg was hurting, so I gave him some Advil before bed. This morning he said he didn't want to go to school (he was sick right before the break and missed 2 days of school). I told him to get up. He had breakfast and whined a lot. When he came home, I picked him up at the bus stop so he wouldn't have to walk home alone in the cold (DD1 was staying after for swim team) and he hit his head on the door getting into the car, and started crying and said he'd had a horrible day, and his feet hurt and his leg hurt, and UG. I gave him a big snack, more Advil, and sent him to basketball practice. We'll see how he is when he gets home. But I'm jumping to the conclusion that it's a food. And that new thing... gluth...whatever it was doesn't seem to have any affect at all.

post #760 of 770

Been in hiding lately...

 

Yay for 12 hours of sleep.  For dd, that seems to happen when she's REALLY tired, like either getting sick, totally busy/active day, or eating gluten or some such.

 

I'm trying to get the house under control (still) but this time it's in the form of first envisioning what I want it to look like, rather than the vague goal of 'decluttering.'

 

I'm loving pinterest, not only for collecting yummy looking safe recipes to inspire meal planning, but also as a form of online treasure mapping.  It's just like it was made for me (and that's where I've been the last few days).

 

Dd is sick AGAIN, not sleeping well, coughing, runny nose.  She's been in bed with us, which means I'm sandwiched between her and ds (and dh gets a corner by our feet, poor guy) and can't move.  Now my back is really bothering me.  Sorry that you deal with an ouchy back all the time kathy!

 

Glutathione... Before you pull it, try upping the dose like pb told me to?  Increase till there's that bubbly/burning/too much HCl feeling then back off by one.  It took a day or two on that dose (repeated 3x/day) and I felt soooo much better.  She had it pegged as a biggie for me, though, what with all my oxidative stress going on.

 

And ds is cranky cranky crankypants.  don't know if he's getting sick or if I took too many enzymes or everything is just too in flux or he misses dd (hiding out in her room, watching videos) or what.

 

Oh, and dd and I had a monumental battle, me insisting that she eat ONE cell salt before refusing them.  She flat out refused in a primal, you can't control me sort of way.  Then we talked (for the first time) about when she was a baby and we took her to the dentist and held her while she screamed and they scraped her teeth.  She was a lot happier after that, and happily tried the salt (she was moving in that direction anyway, before the story).  Control has always been a big, big thing for her, and this was a culmination of it.  I wonder if that dentist experience was the start of it, and if talking it through finally will help her process it all and change some of the control stuff in the future.  I can at least hope, right?

 

Gonna go clear the couch, clear and sweep the floor, start dinner (saucy meatballs with sweet potatoes and roasted cauliflower), and then think about making little mason jar terrariums for the window.  I wonder if any herbs would grow well in those?
