Panic Disorder affects more than 2.4 million Americans. Striking twice as many women as men, Panic Disorder is characterized by unexpected and repeated sensations of extreme fear accompanied by chest pain, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, numbness and tingling, dizziness or stomach upset.
Mimicking symptoms of heart or respiratory distress, Panic Disorder is often misdiagnosed or undiagnosed
. This failure leads… Continue

Nothing is wrong with my real family. Got a mom and dad -- decent, loving, caring people. But once I came out as gay, things changed, and now that I have a child of my own, whom I am raising with my partner and the baby’s father, a gay man, I have found another family that I didn’t even know I needed.
I am one of the lucky ones whose folks at least somewhat accept me as gay; but still, it is a reality that no matter what, my family and life will never be as I envisioned it growing… Continue

Every child deserves to have a good book read to her. Reading aloud is one of the most important activities you as a parent, grandparent, sibling, or caregiver can do together. No matter what your values are, reading can help communicate via illustrations and stories. Those “green” parents who want to share their eco-values with their offspring can do so by reading or supplying books about the environment. Here are some of my favorites:
· The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss is my… Continue

Three incidents involving ineffective generic drugs recently occurred in my life.
After taking Zoloft for years I switched, without problem, to the generic Sertraline carried by my local pharmacy. Then, in an effort to economize, I ordered my prescription through a popular mail-delivery system which sent Sertraline manufactured by yet another company. Within a month my depression returned and I knew the… Continue

The other day we took Birdie and Bubba with us to the Y so that Howie and I could attend a circuit training class. We dropped them off at an evening program that they offer for kids five and over.
There was just one hitch: Bubba is only 4.
I knew he would be fine. He listens to directions, he doesn't hit or use bad language, he cleans up after himself and since he's nearly six feet tall, nobody would question his age. Plus, I knew that he would follow their rules to the T… Continue

I thought I'd dedicate today's post to a very important member of our family--Harvey Hamel the Camel.
Harvey is a sweet, too-cute stuffed camel given to me by my sweet, too-awesome friend from college, Amanda, at a baby shower. I love this simple toy for many reasons. One, I love stuffed animals and have since (probably) infancy. So really, any stuffed animal is a friend of mine. Two, how often to you see a stuffed camel? It's so unique! And very manly, at that. No wimpy teddy bears… Continue

My oldest daughter, Yuna, brought a book home from her school library the other day. It was called:
Old Turtle And The Broken Truth
I read it to her before bedtime and it turned out to be one of the most touching and beautiful children stories I have ever read. The pictures were breath taking and the story itself had me choked up while reading it. It was that good.
I'm going to share… Continue

The following is an excerpt from a great article found in Young Living's Essential Lifestyle magazine.
We have all felt the effects of sleep deprivation: that zombie-like feeling that consumes us the moment we roll out of bed. Our eyes are heavy, we can't think straight, everything is a blur. Like mechanical robots, we go about our day not fully comprehending what is going on around us.
The negative effects… Continue

So, I'm weird. I know this. I have accepted it and EMBRACED it. I tend to obsess over things, I like to overthink, and if it can be analyzed gurl I am AN. A. LY. ZING....
I stay at home. I am with my children 99,9% of the time. My husband works four days in a row and we hardly see him those days, but then he is home for 4 days straight. Yet, right now I feel like I haven't seen my family but we are together CONSTANTLY! I know it makes no sense, but it seems like I am always so… Continue

1. I left a message on someone's machine and instead of leaving MY number I left my friends... Thankfully, I realized it AFTER I hung up and was able to recall and leave a NEW message giving my REAL number... how embarrassing!
2. Load the kids in the car and leave for preschool. Only to have my gas light chime as I am entering the neighborhood 18 miles to empty... I look over and yup... NO wallet. So I turn around, dash inside, and grab my wallet! (I still made it to preschool ON… Continue

Brought our daughter to the ER for her foot. Terrible pain and she has a VERY high tolerance forpain. They said she has an impaction fracture on Saturday and now they say she doesn't. So? How does anyone explain why she can't walk on it? It's not swollen or black and blue like a sprain. I just don't know which way to turn!

I haven’t breastfed Landon in days. I finally had to take antibiotics for the mystery virus I have been having for two weeks, and it seems that because of the virus or the antibiotics my skin is more sensitive. I got three deep cuts on the base of my nipples from letting Landon still nurse, and at some point last week I started crying when he nursed, it was so incredibly painful. That was it for me; I had reached the breaking point and decided that I have to stop nursing him until those wounds… Continue

The other day I was helping my nine year old study for her Social Studies test. The topic: World War II focusing on food rationing and Victory Gardens
. How appropriate in today’s atmosphere of uncertainty.
Originally, Victory Gardens
were vegetable, fruit and herb gardens planted in private residences during World War I and II to primarily ease the demands on the public food supply brought on by the war. But these gardens were also morale boosters. What a perfect… Continue

This week, on Thursday to be exact, Kayla will be getting tubes in her ears. During our appointment with the ENT specialist last week they hooked her ears up to a machine that tests pressure and fluid levels.
She failed miserably.
Both ears are still filled with fluid, her left ear being the worse than the right. I feel so AWFUL for her. Her poor little ears have not been fluid free since OCTOBER! That's 5 solid months of fluid and on and off again infections. I can't even… Continue
