Asthma in Children – What is Asthma, Causes, Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment

I remember my oldest son had a lot of problems when he was a baby with frequent upper respiratory infections, wheezing, difficulty breathing, and asthma.  I never found out what triggered his asthma problems but I am assuming it is because he has sensitivity to environmental allergens.   In fact, now he only has to use an inhaler when he exercises outdoors,…

Swirling Parallels

It always seems to start with a phone call.

When I became a parent of a special needs child, I only sought out one.

Ins & Outs of Inpatient Treatment

This week I spent several hours on the phone with two mothers whose daughters need inpatient placement and care. Both young women are dealing with substance abuse issues, anxiety, depression and possible bipolar disorder. Both are beautiful, vibrant, intelligent and vital, and will serve the world in amazing ways when they are well.



But right now, they are not well.
