Happy Wednesday everyone,

Waiting for the weekend. We have some windy, cold weather today. Not a good day for the park again. May have to go the gym to workout.

Hoping everyone has a very bright and happy day,

Laura

I have been working so hard this week and feel exhausted. Bring Friday on and a day off.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Thanks Georgia. I think you are right. I went to the park twice so far. Went yesterday and now today. Got back inside quickly before the storms are to hit. Was able to do some yoga as well to feel energized.

Hope everyone has a super and blessed day,

Laura

aura happy birthday to your son. It could be that all those health issues have caught up with you and now you are drained. Tomorrow willbe better.

Rains still hanging around and now a cyclone has formed further north with the prospect of more rains. Bring on winter at least then I know we have sunshine.

Happy Monday to everyone,

Had a very festive weekend with my son. His birthday was Saturday and we shared cupcakes with his friends on the bowling team he participates. Having to buckle down with my eating and exercising this week. Felt very overwhelmed this weekend for some reason. Need to take a step back from something, not sure which or what. Have to pray about it.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week,

Laura

Erika yes it is still raining and will be on and off for another week. At least the torrential rains we received on the weekend have stopped. We have already had the years total rain in the 8 weeks of this year.

Dee there are severe floods happening yet again in this state. I feel for some folks as they have been flooded twice in three weeks. Hope you are feeling better today. Not nice being the nurse of the family and being sick too.

The sleeplessness is due to some medication I am taking. I am settling into some sleep and it will get better as I get used to it.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Morning All, hope you have a good day/evening.

Vicky, good news on the apt for dh, hopefully he will follow through on it. emoticon

Ari, do hope you are feeling better and the IEP meetings go well.

Georgia, do hope the rains don't cause any damages. Glad you had a nice time out with friends. OY on not getting any sleep though. I've used chamomile tea in the past and that seems to help as well as Melatonin, which is a supplement you can buy.

Laura, glad you are getting some answers for your ds. Patience is something I don't have a lot of either, so can totally relate to ds and dh.

Erika, hope your day is going well.

Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

Me, hanging in there. Doing a bit better today and hopefully this is a sign that I am on the mend.

Dee & Ari - hope both of you feel better soon.
Georgia - has it stopped raining yet? We got some snow flurries here today but DH & I went for a walk anyway. Sorry you're having trouble sleeping - I use "sleepytime tea" and it seems to help me.
Laura - glad you got some answers and feel you are on the right path.
Hope you all have a great weekend (and get rest)

Dee I hope you are feeling better today.

Vicki that is great news.

I am tossing and turning and getting minimal sleep these days. Ughhh!!!

Last night I drove 40 mins in torrential rain to celebrate a friends birthday. It was a lovely night and when I left they all asked me to send them text messages when i arrived home.

Rain still hanging around but not pouring as heavily so far today.

Such relief.

TGIF to everyone.........Had my appointment with the Pulmonary doctor for my son. He didn't see any infection on the X-ray but swelling around the bronchial walls that caused his asthma to flare up. He felt that he had a sinus infection that was not treated and caused his bronchial walls to swell. Also, his throat is very irritated with all of his coughing. One thing he noticed that he coughs as a habit. Which I have told him but I get the "No Mom I don't" and then he coughs. We have work to do but we are now on the right path. Praise God.

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend..........

Hey all. Much too busy around here, but we are getting by.

We have the IEP meeting (including discussion of middle school placement) coming up in 2 weeks. I stayed up much to late last night drafting the parental concerns statement since I noticed that nobody from Assistive Technology was scheduled to attend. While we are in support of what we believe will be S's placement, we anticipate a disagreement with the district about dedicated word processor vs. computer.

Staying up too late pushed me over the edge and I now have a cold.

Hugs to all of you.

Morning or Evening to all,

Today is the day we head off to see the Pulmonary doctor. Hope things go well for us. I told my son and his dad that this will take time to heal but both of them are impatient men. It is going to stink come Saturday if he is not up to feeling better for his 14th Birthday. But I will figure something out to making it special for him.

Thanks for all the prayers. Hope that everyone sees a smile around the corner.

Laura emoticon

Good Morning, hope you all have a nice day/evening.

Laura, do hope the doc can send some light on what is going on with ds. Sounds like he is doing better which is a good sign. Remember you have to take care of yourself so you can take care of others. Look at working out as helping you to be able to do that. If you think of working out as a chore it will become one. emoticon

Georgia, do hope the sun continues to shine for you.

Tina, oh my on the toilets, but glad you came up with a solution for them. Hope you continue to feel better as well. emoticon

Erika, how are you doing? Hope all is well.

Me, hanging in there. My dad is doing better, my dd was ill for a couple of days, and now my ds woke up with stomach ache/throwing up this morning so kept him home from school. Otherwise all is well here.

G'day all.
Dee how wonderful. You are obviously doing the right things. Heres to much more loss. You deserve it.
Laura I still don't feel 100%. Pnuemonia or any chest infection can take weeks to heal. Prayers for him and you.
Georgia I hope that you find some sunshine today, weather or a warm smile from someone.
Taking some more antibiotics today just to make sure this infection doesn't start up again. Plumber came yesterday and originally told me it would be two hours before we could use the two toilets. As he walked out the door he tells me 24. Arghhh. So pulled in one of the old toilets and put in a bowl and put on the seat and sat it all in the bathroom. Kids not impressed with having to take pan to toilet to flush but the concrete needed to dry. At least we had something. One doesn't miss something until it is gone. Today at 12 we can start using our lovely new toilets. Woo hoo.
Keeping Kimberley off today so that we can go shopping. After I was sick she really missed me and needs some mum daughter time. Should be fun.
hugs to all, tina

Dee, emoticon on the weight loss. Hope everyone else is or will be having a emoticon day. My son went back to school and did not participate in gym as he was coughing a little bit. We have an appointment with the Pulmonary doctor and hope to have answers as to what is going on. He cough does sound lose this morning. Hope he is on the path to getting better. Just going to take time and patience, all of what Dad and my son don't have.

Today, trying to work on getting to urge to go workout. I had to make myself on Monday and Tuesday to go. And today, I really don't want to. But I know emotionally I need to. I can't give in to being lazy again.

Hope everyone has a good day or night,

Laura

Laura sometimes being with friends helps to heal - so I am hoping our son feels good today.


The rains are still here and will be lingering for another week. I just wish for some sunshine and a the ability to get out of the house for a walk. Getting rounder by the minute. LOL!!

Tina I wish I coulkd send you some of it. We really have had enough and now they are emptying some of it from our dams. So glad your hubby has a job even if it is casual at this stage. Just prove to be a good worker and he shall get more hours.

Hugs to all

Happy Birthday and Get Well to you, Cathy, emoticon emoticon If I could do a YouTube video, I would let my son sing Happy Birthday to you. He loves singing Happy Birthday to people. He sung to his big sister last week for hers. He coughed half way through it but it was special to her is all that counts. Took my son to the ER since was not able to get a specialist to see us sooner than April. The ER doctor said Pnemonia but that it was good advice to see a Pulmonary doctor. Then I received a blessing from his Allergist's doctor, the nurse was able to move an appointment up to this Thursday. We will see what they say. But he was cleared to go back to school. I hope he has a good day.

I have everyone in my prayers. It is very rainy this morning and has turned colder. Going to get started working and have a second cup of coffee. Enjoy your day and or night. emoticon

Laura emoticon to brighten everyone's day.

Thanks everyone! You are all so sweet! Tomorrow is my actual birthday...feeling a little under the weather though with the respiratory thing my son had. Ugh...

My Josiah is the sweetest boy! He saw that I didn't feel well this morning and so made me a card to "get well." Then my daughters did the same! The three younger ones are so incredibly sweet!

Hope all of you have the most amazing day/evening!

Hugs, Cathy

G'day all.
Georgia we are in drought over here and you in rain. My heart goes out to all those who again must clean up. Hope you are doing okay and are safe on the roads.
Dee hope that your dad is feeling better soon. Hope you are okay.
Cathy hope that your birthday is amazing. You deserve that best because you are the best. X
Laura you and your son are in my prayers. Hope they figure it out soon so that your son feels better.
Vicky I hope that your hubbie finds somewhere soon. Maybe giving him a time limit is a a good idea. Seeing your lawyer is also a good idea. You are in my prayers.
Hubbie started work yesterday. His paperwork said casual and not full time so I am hoping that it is just for the first couple of months as he won't get sick or holiday pay. Hoping he gets paid too this week as we sure could use the money. He seems to like it so that is also very important to me.
Everyone at work is sick and now I am feeling blahh again. A chest infection at the moment is not a good idea after all I have been through. Trying to take it easy which is hard for a mum.
Prayers to all, hugs tina. X

Laura I feel for you and your son. He will recover but it is so hard on everyone when they are sick. Praying for a speedy recovery.

The rains are so heavy and more flooding for those poor folk who have only just cleaned up from the last lot of flooding. May clear later tonight.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Sending prayers to all. Well, my son is still showing no signs of recovering. None of the antibiotics are working and they up it to another one. And his regular doctors wanted to see him and they say it is not Pneumonia but Bronchitis. I hate it when they say something bad about the others diagnoses and vice verse. Now he can't go back to school hacking his head off. So, kept him home and my husband is going to get things straighten out with the doctors. I will handle school and my son's work.

Sending emoticon and emoticon to each of you,

Laura

Vicky, sending HUGS and prayers for all.

Georgia, do be careful in that rain, we had something similar here and you could barely see the headlights of the oncoming vehicles.

Tina, how ya doing? Has dh started his new job?

Cathy, how are you all doing?

Laura, it takes a little time for the antibiotics to begin working. Sounds like ds wanting to play is a good sign though. HUGS!

Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

Hey everyone!

Talked to the hubby more lat night. He is saying that he has started getting some things for his own place. I hope he is telling the truth. I really do not know. He knows now that i still want him to leave now I just have to put more of a deadline in place.

Got some bad news with my brother. My sis in law had a miscarriage. I am so broken hearted for them. I know in my heart my brother was hoping for that boy. Prayers would be appreciate!

I feel very blessed to have you ladies on my side. Day 3 on the antibiotics and still not much improvement. Still coughing. They say 48 hours to get into the system. He and Dad are very impatient to see some comfort. I tell them it takes time. But I am wondering myself as well. He just told me that he wants to go outside and play. And he can't but watch everyone ride their bikes and play in the yard with Nerf guns. They are on break from school and he can't do much to enjoy he time off. My heart breaks for him. We watched a movie last night together and we were laughing. Despite getting too excited and coughed, but good feeling to see him laugh. emoticon

Sending sunshine despite our rain and snow in other places, emoticon

Georgia, the roasted veggies sound delicious.

Tina, hope you feel better soon. YEAH on dh getting a new position.

Laura and Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

Me, hanging in there. My dad didn't go to rehab this morning as he has come down with a bad head cold and is still having reflux issues. Hoping to have a relaxing weekend and get some much needed "me time" in.

G'day all.
Dee glad that your dad is okay. We worry so much about our kids and our parents and everyone else. Don't forget to look after yourself too. X
Laura I have aspiration pnuemonia at the moment and did not even know I had it until I woke up in lots of pain. The antibiotics will kick in quickly and your son will soon feel better. You are a great mum and you do the best you can. X
Georgia I love roast veges but they don't love me very much. Hope you find some quiet time to do some more reading. X
Cathy I am also 51 this year. I love to find a unhealthy recipe and make it healthy. It is fun and when no one notices then it is great. Hope you find an amazing dinner that is yummy and healthy.
Me plodding along. DH still hasn't found anything but get mad when I mention going back to work. But we need finances coming in and if it takes a while for him to find work then I will pick up as many shifts as possible in order to keep us afloat until he finds something. Just over his sadsack at the moment. I know he wants to work but being grumpy and angry all the time is not going to help the situation.
hugs, tina

Dee, so glad that your dad is okay and it wasn't something more serious! Hugs!

Laura, you DID do all you could for your son. You are like the rest of us who put so much pressure on ourselves to protect our dear kids. You did absolutely everything and more! Your son will now get the relief he needs because of your persistence! Hugs!

Georgia, hope your arms and shoulders are feeling much better soon! Hope you enjoyed your day off. Hugs!

Hugs to everyone! We have a snowstorm of 3-5 inches coming tonight!! YAY! I love snow!! The kids and dogs do too!

Trying to decide what I want to have for a birthday dinner and I want it to be healthy. I have worked so hard to get to where I am today, that I just don't want to ruin that with eating the wrong things. I want to honor myself with a healthy meal...not that there is anything wrong with an occasional indulgence! My 11 year old Josiah paid me a wonderful complement and told me I am weird, wonderful and act so young! I needed to hear that since I will turn 51 on Tuesday!! Love that kid!!

Hugs to all, Cathy

Laura, so glad the fray showed what was going o n with your son. As Moms we do our best for our children. You persisted until things were figured out for your son, that's what matters most.

Georgia, do hope your shoulders and arms are feeling better.

Tina and Cathy, sending emoticon

Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

Me, hanging in there. Right now listening to the rain storm outside. Hoping the temps don't drop overnight or all this water will freeze. Otherwise we are all doing well.

Dee such a relief that it is nothing more serious.

Cathy hugs to you too.

Laura children's illness turn quickly. There is nothing you could have done to prevent this. You are a good mum otherwise you would not have been persisting to find out what was wrong. Give yourself a break and remember how lucky your young man is to have you.

Day off today and my shoulders and arms ar not happy. And as we know that does not stop us from doing what has to be done.

Have a wonderful day,

Thanks everyone for your support and prayers. The results came back yesterday from the chest x-ray. He has pnemonia. We bought the antibiotics last night and gave him quick. He seemed to rest a little bit last night. I am grateful that they found out what is wrong. But I am a little angry at how long it took to find this out. I know that I am not super Mom but I just feel I should of done more. I just hate to see my son feel miserable. He is constantly smiling and during this time, his smiles are not as often because he feels terrible with his nagging cough.

I am so glad to have you ladies in my corner. emoticon emoticon

Hope everyone has a blessed day or evening,

Laura emoticon

Hi Everyone, sending emoticon and emoticon to All.

Laura, I do hope ds will allow them to do the x-rays so the docs can figure out what is going on and hopefully help him to feel better.

Me, hanging in there. The scope showed a slight irritation to the esophagus but otherwise nothing else for my dad. We are thinking it may be acid reflux or GERD that is causing the pain and problems for him. Frustrating as we feel we don't know anymore than we did before he entered the hospital. Dad needs to check with a Gastroentologist (sp?) to see what can be done and also if in fact that is the problem.

Sending hugs to everyone. Have an eventful day ahead. Now they want to do chest x-rays on my son. Told him and explained what they are going to do. Now he is not wanting to do this. I can see now, this won't be a good moment today. And I was upset yesterday with my husband because of his frustration with our son not getting any better. I stood my ground with him.

Hope everyone has good day,

Laura

G'day all.
Dee you and your dad are in my prayers and hugs.
Laura sending you hugs too and hope all is well with you and your son.
Cathy hope that you have an amazing day.
Georgia hope the weather behaves itself for you over in the east. We are due rain but still waiting.
Went to my doctors yesterday. She is not impressed with the doctors at Joondalup hospital. Think I should have gone to Charlies. She says that I should have been on IV antibiotics and that she want to see the xrays and paperwork that they were supposed to send to her because she cannot hear any breath sounds in my right lung. Have no idea what that means but would ask for prayers that there is nothing wrong. Have to get back to work asap and prayers that DH finds something soon as it will indeed take a lot of stress off me knowing we have an income coming in again.
Prayers and hugs to all, tina

G'day all.
Laura I know how you feel. People expect me to have all the answers too. Hope your son is feeling better.
Vicky you are in my prayers that your hubbie will realise and do the right thing.
Dee hope that you are all doing fine and staying dry and warm.
Cathy you are amazing with all you do. Prayers your home situation is okay at the moment.
Georgia we only had a little rain the other day but the weather has been a little cooler before it heats up again.
Feeling a little better but it will take time. Hoping to get back to work on Thursday and pick up some extra shifts until DH finds a job. Want him to go back to work so that I can get my routine back.
hugs to all, tina

Me, hanging in there and dog-tired. Been at the hospital with my dad, had to call EMT's last night and they took him to the ER where we waited from 9:30pm til 1:30am before he was admitted. I went home fell asleep about 2:30 til 6:30 then showered and went back to hospital. Have eliminated a heart attack...now trying to figure out what is going on.

Rainign and windy here again. Such crazy weather.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Good Morning all!

Just have a few minutes before I start school with the kids.

Vicki, that is awesome that you have found an exercise that is fun and effective. With Zumba, the weight will come off!

Laura, hope your son's cough goes away. My 11 year old son has that nagging cough as well. And it just doesn't quit! He is on 2 inhalers and it is very very slowly getting better. He has asthma, and then activity aggravates the cough and the throat clearing.

Georgia, hope you have the very best day every with your dear grandson! You deserve it.

Dee, hugs to you dear friend!

Gotta go! Hugs to all, Cathy

Good morning! Today is my first day of my week break! Sooooo needed. Hubby is home too, so may be stressful Still have to talk with him about moving forward. Its just so stressful. Why take the money and then try and play off like everything is ok and all lovey dovey!?!?!?

Had a gain in weight this week. I know its the food. The food is always the problem for me. So my goal this week is to track!!!! TRACK TRACK TRACK!!!!!!

I have also become addicted to ZUMBA recently. I did it this weekend amd Im hooked. Did it Sat, Sun and Im gonna go today too. Might get the DVD's since I wont always be able to go to the classes during the week.

Trying to kickstart the weight loss again!

Good Morning,

Had a very emotional eating weekend. My son is still having the crappiest cough that won't go away. Both my husband and my son look to me to have all the answers. And second guess what the doctor told me to do to help my son. I guess I am putting too much pressure on myself but that is how they make me feel at times. I have called the doctor's office again, we will see what they want to do. But this time, I am asking my husband to take him. Work may be upset if I go again, but this is my child and they will have to get over it. But he should be able to do it and then he can get the same answers that I got on Thursday.

Vicky, praying for you. Be strong and stand your ground.

Hope everyone has an awesome Monday,

Laura

Tina, do hope you continue to feel better. HUGS!

Vicky, sending HUGS your way. Sorry dh is trying to get back onto your good side by going through the kids. Hope things work out the way you want them too. Enjoy your break from school.

Cathy, sorry your ds is still being trying. Sending HUGS your way as well. How sweet of dh to get you different types of fruits instead of chocolates.

Laura, how is ds doing today? How are you doing?

Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

Me, hanging in there. Took my van in for maintenance and also recall fix luckily dh decided to take two vehicles as we ended up leaving the van at 9 and didn't pick it up til 1:30pm, and they need to order parts for the recall fix so will have to go back. If we hadn't had the second vehicle I would have been sitting there by myself the whole time waiting for the van to be done. Very frustrating day.....

Hugs and Prayers to all!

I asked my hubby NOT to get me chocolates for Valentine's and he honored my request. But he did something even "sweeter!" He got me a variety of healthy fruits!! I so appreciate his support!

Hope you are all doing well.
Things are still very trying with my teen Aspie. Days can be so exhausting!! But I am continuing to live a healthy lifestyle and the scale is moving in the right direction!! My goal for this month is to be below 170...even 169.9 is good enough for me!! It is a doable goal, but with my body, we shall see.

Hugs, Cathy

Oh Tina!!! I hope you get better soon!!!!

Yesterday was my last day and I get a week break from work. And boy do I need it! Still not thrilled with my new room!Trying to like it. I love the staff! The students are just very trying!

Hubby is playing the sympathy card again. He is using the kids too. I have to sit down and talk to him about things. I have to come up with ground rules. He is hoping that I break and cave in and tell him I don't want him to leave. I told him I didn't want anything for Valentines day and he didn't get me jewelry like he usually does. But he got me a funny but sappy card. Flowers and chocolate covered strawberries. He got the kids chocolates and cards. The one for Bryan was very emotional. I was happy that it meant so much to the kids, but yet was upset because it was him sucking up to them and I didn't like that.

He is just being so weird. I tell him I want him to look for a place. He asks for the half of the tax return and I give it to him, yet he acks like this. Why take the money if you were gonna kiss up and try and get me to change my mind again! UGH!!!!!!

We just gotta talk.

Feeling really blahh but at least I can sleep in my own bed tonight. Will talk more tomorrow.

Oh Laura i do remember those times sy sons needed shots. I felt the pain with them and tried so hard to comfort them afterwards.
Hugs to him for his bravery.

Made some greek shortbread cookies yesterday and as they were to hot to ice placed them on a plate to take some to my mums. On the drive there someone braked hard in front on me and they ended up all over the floor in crumbs. I told mum that this was how I was saving her calories LOL!!! What a mess I had to clean up.

Hoping to get some gardening in today betwqeent the showers of rain.

Dee hope you are having a good time and that the family is all well.

Hugs to all.

Thanks everyone. It was not a happy time at the doctor's office yesterday. They had to do a breathing treatment for son and 2 shots. He hate needles but getting better at them. Normally we have to hold him down. But as he has gotten older, he has gotten better. They wanted to do another shot but he gave this awful look at the doctor that he said 2 should be enough. emoticon He was a trouper but Mom was in a panic on the inside. I just kept his mind busy with his baseball and football cards while he was doing the breathing treatment. After the breathing treatment and those 2 shots, he was non stop talking, when they say it will make him hyper on top of already hyper, I was so tired afterwards, going back to work was not what I was wanted. But got to pay the bills and do what I need to do for my special guy in my life.

Hope everyone has a terrific weekend,

Laura emoticon

Laura, that is wonderful that your dog is okay! I am a big dog lover, so I totally understand! (I have 5 dogs!)
Sorry to hear your son's asthma is acting up. My 11 year old Aspie guy had asthma when he was younger. Though he hasn't had an episode in a couple of years and no meds since, he has it again now. Back to the inhalers. Hope your son is okay and that he can get back to trumpet.

Morning or evening everyone. The dog is fine, fatty tumor. Took the fluid out to check it. Now my son is sick again. His asthma has bothered him and playing his trumpet. So, have to make that call again to the doctors. Busy day, never ending for this girl.

Have a blessed day or night,

Laura

Forgive me, Happy Valentines Day Everyone emoticon

Hugs and prayers to all of you. I am continuing to watch, weigh track what I eat and done well. Exercise is more of the natural variety, but per my monitor I am getting plenty of moderate activity each day! And the scale is staying down, so I can't complain. Things are crazy busy as always.

Josiah has been sick a for a couple of weeks, and it is his asthma as well as an respiratory infection. Poor kid! He took the meds but is still struggling. He is on inhalers as well. With this guy part of it is emotional as well.

Tina, glad the tea is helping. I love tea with mint. Hugs!

Wishing all of you the very best day (or night!)

Hugs, Cathy

Vicky so pleased you made the decision. Maybe now Bryan will fell more settled and his health will improve. The whole family will be happier. Praying for you.

Laura prayers that the lump is just a cyst.

Tina I too love having the house to myself and it never happens anymore. I hope DH had good luck with job interview. Regularity has been the bane of my life. I am taking Kevia capsule - they are made from kiwi fruit. Have been so helpful. I like the green tea idea and shall try it.

Me - just hanging in there and am trying once again to find my inner strength to get back on track.

Dee and cathy hope you are well.
Hugs to all

Sending hugs and prayers to each of you. emoticon emoticon I hate that you are having to deal with that Tina. And I am sure it was not easy for you to come to that decision. But sometimes we have to, just to have some peace of mind back. The day is going to be hectic for me at work and I have to take my dog to the Vet. We found a small lump on his side and going to have the Vet take a look at it. Hope it is nothing. I am ready to lose our family friend here and can't or shouldn't think that way. But I know that day will come eventually. Just praying it not today.

Hope everyone has an awesome day,

Laura

G'day all.
Laura so glad that you are your son are finding a middle ground where peace hopefully will stay.
Dee send some rain over here and I will again send you some lovely sunshine. We were forecast rain but it did not happen again.
Vicky you are in my prayers. Hopefully he will understand and not make it hard on you or the kids. Hugs.
Georgia you are in my prayers.
This is the first time in forever I have had the house to myself. DH is on an interview and the kids are at work or school.
Been having problems with being regular. Have started having green tea again with mint. Have a few during the day but one usually just before I go to bed. It has a natural anti depressant in it as well as helping me sleep so much better. And am up and on the go every morning. Works a treat. Also helps with weight loss as it speeds up your metabolism. I love the smell of the mint in the tea and because I am drinking so much even though I have it weak I am drinking more fluid as well.
So hopes and prayers for all of you.
hugs, tina
