Hello, I would say this was a brief introduction, but my life is never that boring. March 15, 2014 was my start date for this site found it while browsing for a calorie counter. I am a 32 year old mom of 4. I have 3 girls and a boy. My oldest is 13, then 11, and 9 and then my miracle son who is 2. I had cervical cancer and had to have part of my cervix removed and was told I couldn't have kids anymore. Well 7 years after my last daughter was born and I get to do it all again, of course boys are a whole new adventure of their own. I have had issues with my weight for a while, guess my mom was right when she said it would catch up to me. I suffer from a range of mental issues from Bipolar disorder, social anxiety disorder, mild insomnia, attachment disorder, ADD, and have 2 out of 4 of my kids who are also diagnosed with ADHD, and other learning disabilities such as mild to moderate dyslexia, and a short term memory issue with my second daughter. I should probably be on some form of medication, but being treated comes at a price I can't afford, not financially but health wise. I have Fatty Liver Disease and was told if I dieted and exercised I could stop or even regress the disease and then I could get the proper treatments after that time. The meds I need are processed through the liver and my doctor strongly recommends not taking most of them. The ones I can take don't freaking work or side effects are to harsh and I canít take the countering medication because it is processed through the liver as well. The problem with this is maintaining my mental state so as that I have the energy as well as the motivation to get out of bed. Well here goes attempt number "I lost count". I have within the last few days started on St. Johns wart, my psychiatrist who recommended it. I do not take any other medications other than daily vitamins and melatonin occasionally to sleep. Because of the liver though and the fact the few drugs I was allowed to take not working he thought that this might help with less effect on my liver. I am not fallowing the bottles recommendation for dosage I am fallowing his which is way less. The bottle says 2 pills with each meals, I am taking only 2 one in the morning with breakfast and one with dinner. I have 4 kids that I love deeply so staying alive as long as possible is something I plan on doing. I do not just change my meds or think because its herbal itís safe. I am not sure if my page is open or not I tried to change the settings to make it viewable but not sure if it worked. I have pictures of my kids and family on there, feel free to stop by add me or please let me know if it is not open. Thank you and I wish all the luck to others as well. And yes I gave this introduction to almost all the groups I am in.
