Thank you, Everything is ok for now

Sunday, June 29, 2014

Thank you so much for your thoughts,goodies and prayers. My son is ok for now. but we still have options that we need to consider for him (therapy,mostly). He will be ok. Mama got his back!!!

My mother is doing better mentally,but righ now she has bronchitis. As many of you might not know,she has COPD,has been on a ventilator 3 times whithin the past 2 years,has congestive heart failure,so this bronchitis could easily turn into pnuemonia and send her back to the ICU...which she has been in too many times to count. State run instututions(at least here,anyway) just dont care. Employees DONT CARE about the only mother that you have ,they DONT care if they are happy and get better.....at least,most of them dont care.

..sorry about the rant....emotions are flowing regarding my special people.

Please Help Me Help My Boy

Saturday, June 14, 2014

My son is 11. He is my precious boy. We are very close. He is sensitive like his mother. He has a temper like his father. When he is easily affected by certain situations(because he is sensitive like his mother),he gets angry (like his father) and cries,because he cant hit things,or people,so he has no other outlet,therefore he appears to be 'like a baby'. He is in our gifted class at school,and is so,so loving.

He does not want to see a counselor at school,because he does not want to be looked upon as a troubled or bad child. He has begged me to keep this a secret because I am the only person he can trust......I cant do that,but I dont know what to do....

My baby thinks of suicide.....often.....

What a secret for a mother to hold. Dad would not accept this news very well...might even get angry....would that help? HELL NO

help me help my baby

    Hey girl emoticon , I'm so sorry, I know how proud you are of your son. Is he being bullied at school? Try talking to the counselor with him there, maybe that will help. I know you are going through things already. If you tell your husband he might get angry, but also if you tell him later he will get angry, and wanted to know why you kept it from him. Take care of your boy is most important. Make it a mommy and son day .take him to a bating cages something like that. But ask him if anybody has been bothering him at school. will be thinking of you emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I just want to add my voice to those who say that you need to take your child to see a professional. It might very well be a psychiatrist or a psychologist. Your husband is going to have to learn to deal with it. Perhaps he should see one too. I'm not trying to be harsh, but your son needs help. I have to agree that I don't know if school would be the right place to get help, then again, I don't know what type of help you have at the school. Just keep giving your son all of the love that you have been giving him! I will keep all of you in my prayers.

    I'm sorry, this is tuff stuff to deal with. My daughter has twice been in a "clinic" and is still doing therapy. She is a love everything black, depressed, cutting herself, suicide thinker. I had her read your blob since she has been through most of this. Her and I came to the same answer.
Therapy- very quickly. Sorry- I know it's not the best or most comfortable answer. In this case, the quicker acting, the better.

The good news is that it gets better. Have been dealing with this same thing before, and it's getting healthy.

Good luck, emoticon

    Please, please take your son to a counselor. He may not want to go, but you definitely cannot handle this without professional help.

I have few suggestions: 1). Try to find someone who you feel would be a good person for your son (speak with the counselor first) 2). Find an agency that will take your health insurance for payment, if not, that will put you on a sliding scale, or the school may be able to suggest someone. 3). Find a way to help your son communicate his feelings--example, drawing, running, journaling, etc. 4). Keep a close eye on your son's behavior--that will let you know a lot & journal what you are learning. This can help your son and you to know warning signs. Read all you can about the subject. It's not something people talk a lot about. Knowledge can help and it can give you tools to help your son and his counselor.

To be honest, I would care care right now what Dad thinks, you son is what is important. A good counselor can help with the dad.
Keep praying. I am praying for you both. Let us know how things are going.

    Oh, you are right to take this seriously! He does need a counselor who is experienced working with young people. The longer he goes through life trying to hide this, the harder it will be for him to deal with it. I speak as one who did not deal with some serious stuff until I was in my 30's! I wish I had had a parent I could talk to who would have gotten me some help. A professional may also be able to help with approaching his dad about this. You were already in my prayers. I will continue to pray for you every day! emoticon

LINDA7668 6/14/2014 6:14PM

    As one of those people that is very emotional and tends to bottle things up, my suggestion is to get him professional help immediately. I was the same way when I was his age but parents either didn't see or was unaware of how bad my depression was. I didn't get help until my mid 20's. I needed it much earlier than that and I don't know how I made it through my teen years.

For his good, please find him some help. Talk to your doctor about a referral to a good therapist. I'm very afraid of what might happen if you don't. If he does like I did, you only know a small part of what's going on.

I am probably overstepping my bounds here. But if his father can't accept that your son needs help, then he is part of the problem. You have to do what ever you can to help your son. He should be your top priority.

Prayers and good thoughts going your way.

    My dear, this is a serious situation (well, you already know that, obviously). In this case, I believe you need to pursue counseling. Perhaps the school might not be the appropriate place, but go outside the school . . . find a counselor who works w/pre-adolescents and adolescents.

I really cannot go into the story here, but my DS went through very emotionally draining times as a pre-teen and teen. Would not have made it through w/o counseling.

Wishing you luck.

Mama Sees Demons

Sunday, June 01, 2014

my mother has been struggling withlife-threatening health issues on a regulary basis for the last 2 years. in and out of the hospital EVERY month.

Now her health seems a little better but she has lost her mind!!
She has been fighting schizophrenia/manic depression for years...in and out of institutions. Even shock treatment. It was difficult for me as a child to see her like this.

We have no choice now (me and my dad) but to have her committed again. It's been 15 years since her last hearing.

I dont know if Im strong enough to handle it this time. emoticon

Before I knew it, I was on the floor surrounded by CPK boxes....someone actually thought I worked in the store!!!

    I am going to be 39 in July. I received my first CPK for my 9th birthday. I still have her. I have outfits for holidays and such. In my late 20s I rescued a lot of them and fixed them all up. Some I resold, others I adopted out and the rest I donated to kids in need. It was a great experience. Last year I purchased an older CPK, from the 80s, for my step daughter. Now she too has a cabbie she can dress on holidays just like mine. I'm glad I was able to do that for her. I love the 80s version. I have a hard time with some of the newer ones and even some of the 90s versions, but they are all still pretty cute.

Always Feeling AWFUL

Saturday, April 26, 2014




I am overweight

I have a desk job(keeps me stiff)

I am ALWAYS tired

I have undiagnosed Plantar Faciitis

I have no control of my emotions(crying spells)

And let's not forget the chronic migraines


I visited my nuerologist who ordered LAB WORK...I am not good with blood drawing. Shots,I can deal with.

When I was a child,I had EXCESSIVE lab work because Dr's thought I had Hemophila. I mean,how many times do you have to stick a kid in order to see if she's gonna easily bleed to death????????? So this is why I am not good with lab work....or talking about blood being drawn...THAT had caused me to pass out in high school and take an ambulance ride to the hospital since I landed slap on my forehead!!!!!!


Anyhoo, I have avoided bloodwork for years during Dr. Appts and checkups...EXCEPT when I was pregnant...(.I'll do anything for my kids. ) This time I will have to go through with it. My Dr. believes my thyroid production is low. So if it will help change my life,I will go through with it....I'll just have to get a supply list in order:

Klonepan
Ice Pack
Smelling Saltz ( MAN I HATE THAT SMELL)!!!
Bravery


I'm not an infant,I'm just scarred!!!.....scarred....not scared!!!!

    Ask for a butterfly. Did that sound weird? I detest needles in any form and I have veins that love to hide because they are so small. I learned about 5 years ago that a butterfly needle is the smallest and you can hardly feel it. It hurts when they are drawing with normal needles. Feels like my vein is being sucked out of my arm. The butterfly takes a bit longer but is well worth it. Note that they are expensive and they don't like to use them on adults( they were designed for children). I always tell them I'm paying for it anyway so give me the butterfly. emoticon

    I have always hated needles and too would avoid them. I am not sure why maybe because I was a premie. Who knows. I have thyroid issues and so I know have had to come to terms with it. Plus I think the needles or some thing seems better.

What helps for me is that I drink lots and lots of water before I give blood. Make those veins pop up more. Yes I have been known to drink two bottles just before in the waiting room.

The other things is I will speak up as they only get two tries and then someone else gets to try.

If it is your thyroid it does get better. I thought I was going crazy. I also found I am gluten and dairy intorlent as it was giving me fatigue too. emoticon

I totally underst as nd your fear...I have dealt with paralyzing.fear of dentists & drs.my whole life..I'm better...I can handle the dentist with no problems now & the drs. I am better. I have nodules on my thyroid which has prompted lots of tests ..bloodwork several times...I was a brave girl & did ok...but it took a lot of self talk..prayer...& distractions.So far all is well ...good results from my tests but testing from time to time will be a given for me.. Anyways...If your thyroid is out of whack ...The bloodwork will give you those results & usually a prescription will help you feel so much better.it amazed me to found out how much your thyroid does ! Lots of stuff can be affected by a malfunctioning thyroid. I'm no dr.not by any means... just sharing so you know you're not alone in the anxiousness of tests & maybe even drs.& the thyroid thing can be a legitimate thing that may be contributing to the yuck inessential you're dealing with. Can you take a device to listen to music during your blood tests? I did that for a long time at the dentists!!! I was a bit of a freak -a- zoid.for a long time about that & it helped keep my mind somewhat distracted. Just an idea. Best of luck..you can get through this..I know you can !! Keep us informed.
