Tonight I am really on a RANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I started this website, blog and pages to help people like me to have a judgement free zone to VENT. To be able to think and do things that we feel are best for our families.
I am not a doctor BUT I am a very in tune mom who KNOWS her kid!! I resent doctors that dismiss your knowledge. I struggled with changing pediatricians because I LOVE her and she really was on the money with my son. My only problem is that I seek alternative treatments and although she was very supportive of my tactics she could offer me no guidance there. I normally just go to the chiropractor and make my “potions” and play nurse. I could tell you day by day when he gets sick exactly what is going to happen. Every cough and sneeze following a pattern I know only to well. How long before I have to take out the ultimate poison..the nebulizer?? How many nights of sleep will be lost , how many days of school missed and how many activities cancelled?? It is a constant pattern.
What kills me is I do everything to try to avoid this. I try to do organic foods and a clean diet although it isn’t easy when everyone isn’t on board. It is evident to me after he ate ice cream the other day with his father that dairy or milk in particular is a trigger. From the minute they got home he was congested, watery eyed etc. Thankfully after I pointed it out my husband did see the correlation.
In this month alone he has been not well 3 times!! In my opinion one of the times he was detoxing from adding supplements to his diet. Funny because the new pediatrician md/homoepath I ended up taking him to suggested them. After taking them for over a week one night my son awakens burning up and complaining of a headache. NOT a usual occurence. He rarely gets fever and has never complained of a headache. As I have been reading on the 4As, Asthma,Allergies, ADHD and Autism I have learned the toxic catalysts in these new “epidemics”. I also knew the supplements he gave me were to detox the body. SO WHY when I tell the new dr about this he says “oh that’s a virus”. Like again stupid lady I am the dr. He says well what can I help you with? I said well since we have seen you a few weeks ago my son has had 3 weeks of sick!! (The thing I hate is if he gave me the supplements with the goal to better him why would you negate or shrug off the possibility it was his body doing what it should!! ) I was hoping for more homeopathic advice or at best confirming the whole detox process. I asked if there was anything I could do for his allergies and he said the season didn’t begin yet. MEANWHILE he, like me. are very sensitive to any weather change which we have had. Anyway he offered me no different advice then my beloved pediatrician.
I guess I am ranting because I need someone to listen. I am frustrated because I know were the problems lie BUT my knowledge only goes so far. Why must you be a “CRAZY” mom or dad for that matter when you seek more! I know we have come a long way and I have learned so much and apply it daily. I know there are others not as fortunate a me and my heart goes out to them. It’s just so frustrating knowing the health of our kids can be eradicated with the right direction. It is sad that most of us aren’t in a financial situation to obtain outside help beyond insurance. It is sad that our food supply and medications are being poisoned and when you open your mouth…YOU ARE CRAZY..WELL I have been called worse things and for my son I will move heaven and earth.
This crazy mamma will keep opening my mouth and one day I will be heard.
Please stand with me. Rant and help others rant. Let us gain information to help and support us “CRAZY” mammas!!!
Thanks for your support and for listening.
