<p>and maybe a bit about my crazy boys.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>There has been quite a bit of upheaval since little S has been born.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am seeing lots of connections between dd and ds2 and am seeing that I am reactive to more things (having a reaction right now - I suspect it is carob).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So what is happening? </p>
<p>why the ppd? (to be honest, it has been tinged with psychosis - pls don't quote)</p>
<p>so my hormones are going wild - or is it just nutrient depletion?  I'm trying extra 5-htp</p>
<p>why the extra reactions?</p>
<p>I am all body itchy a lot, even when I don't think I am reacting. </p>
<p>feel total depletion in nutrients although I thought I have been careful</p>
<p>My ds2 reacts to over 20 things, but baby dd is reacting to quite a bit more - what has happened.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>what I want to work on:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>thyroid (numbers came back fine - will post later)</p>
<p>lyme test</p>
<p>strep test</p>
<p> </p>
<p>ds2 just spit for the genetic test so that should give us more information.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>oops got to go - baby woke up during transfer to bed with DH.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I need to gather info about thyroid issues causing allergies.  I need to give info to new doc, so I can get some cred.</p>

<p>clearly my blood loss caused some problems, but I absorb and hold onto iron very well, so I am not concerned long term about that.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My thyroid numbers look fine.  I lean toward hyper - maybe that is why I don't feel tired with my iron numbers as they are?</p>
<p>Do you think it is worth it to demand a antibody thyroid test.  That was the only thing that I was originally thinking about.</p>
<p>My vitamin D numbers never changed from a year ago.  Will work on more clo for me, plus extra D.  I found a possible K solution but need to keep checking to see if it bothers dd</p>

<p><span>With the 2 seconds I have right now, what jumps at me is to focus on methylation for the short term.  Have you been following the choline stuff?  It interacts with folate a lot as a methyl donor, and the main sources are egg yolks, liver and wheat germ.</span>  And then folate and b12, of course.</p>

<p>I just want to say that I wouldn't discount what low iron might be doing.  I know you said you aren't concerned but are you directly addressing that with a supplement?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>ETA:  I see no reason why they wouldn't do the antibody test.  Just to rule it out.  Especially if its covered by insurance.  Kind of seems like a no-brainer.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Had the new doctor heard of the new lyme test?  Given the tick experience you had right at birth I would definitely want that tested sooner rather than later.  </p>
