  1. All that I know—if someone dies of a heart attack and happens to have covid, it’s listed as a covid death. If someone dies of a heart attack after getting the vaccine, it is listed as “just one of those things—people die of heart attacks all the time”. I’m not convinced these gene therapies (they are not vaccines per the definition of a vaccine until they changed the definition) are safe. And no, they can’t really determine cause/effect in anyone who received the vaccine. I just feel like this is one big science experiment on a large scale.

  3. But, the proteins are attached to your cells. The protein is not separated from your own body cell. It is using the RNA of your cell to create the spike of Covid protein that now becomes part of your cell. I have gone to original sources on this vaccine because I’ve lately not been a fan of accepting what is being distilled out there lately. Unless there is new research (which there could be), I’m sticking with what I’ve learned. Last time I checked, the cdc had given this scenario as to how these rna vaccines work.
  4. All I know is that when I last checked, they were still requiring vaccinated people to continue wearing masks and social distance because they can still get it. My mom just got her first shot and was basically told she can still get Covid.
  5. From what I understand in general, the vaccine doesn’t stop you from getting Covid, but reduces the symptoms so people could technically be asymptomatic or get Covid mildly. IMO, that makes the vaccine more dangerous for the elderly population. Basically, a person who is carrying Covid would come to work because they feel fine. If they were sick, they would (in theory) stay home. But because they are now asymptomatic because of the vaccine, they are now carrying it to vulnerable populations? Also, from what I understand of the vaccine, it is newish technology in that it causes
  6. I am looking for my 11th grader next year. I am looking into having him do a half credit course on the constitution and also a half credit course on apologetics. He needs something that is engaging and interesting. For example, he is completing the Dave Ramsey course for high schoolers and is always telling me interesting facts about it. I like the Sonlight Government course in some respects because I can grade it easily. I have also looked at the Apologia government course and even Hillsdale. Hillsdale looks interesting in that it includes readings and quizzes (not the most rigorous I k
  7. Where would I go to figure out if I am dealing with aspergers? I have wondered since my son was diagnosed since he is very much like how I was as a teen. I didn’t figure out teen social interactions until I was 17. I find the world very overwhelming in general and the housing boom that is my area of the city even more so. I’m just needing some answers. I know it won’t change much but understanding would help.
  8. I wish it could be just get used to the new normal and everything will go back to people just upset that their guy didn’t get in. I’m crying daily. The rate at which non confrontational conservative voices are being kicked off of facebook and Twitter is scary. A whole new group of them happened today. The national dialogue of opposing viewpoints is being shut down to only one viewpoint. Also, I have never heard multiple voices from one side saying that one side should be silenced altogether and re-educated. This is what is freaking me out. I’m honestly scared and not just disappointed
  9. I don’t have a lot of sensory issues, but some. I’m sensitive to loud noise and smells. I’ve been told that I take a normal concern over something and then internalize it to an uncomfortable place. I self talk to myself about what response I “should” have rather than what I naturally do. I make conscious decisions to look people in the eye and then have trouble with the conversation because I’m wondering when is the right time to look away. Over the years, I’ve had to ask my husband what is the socially acceptable response to some things. Being in public can be overwhelming and I generall
  10. I am starting to wonder if I am on the spectrum. I have wondered for years. Today, I started finally diving into it. I just may be. It would explain my stress levels and my anxiety/depression. This world was already overwhelming to me before Covid. It has become much more so and I’ve retreated further.
  11. Right now, I am grain free and mostly sugar free. It hasn’t helped much other than my eczema went away. Also, my slowly creeping moderate genetic cholesterol problems also went away. I have the sleep wake up/heart racing thing happen almost nightly. I will fall asleep most nights will wake within 5-10 minutes with my heart pounding and having a mild panic. I have to concentrate on my breathing to fall asleep again and calm down again. I wonder how much of this is peri-menopause symptoms. I do take magnesium and when I don’t, I get muscle twitches. I haven’t had any for a whil
  12. My trauma was only since my disabled son was born. I was diagnosed with attachment issues. I watch my adopted daughter who I know has attachment issues and see myself in her. We are amazingly similar in our emotional response. I’m not sure if my childhood was a response to attachment issues, but I remember being a very anxious child.
  13. I am starting to realize that I have been depressed/ anxious most of my life. It’s really manifesting itself now. I have gone through counseling, gratitude journals, exercise paths, Christian disciplines and inner healing, EDMR therapy for trauma, diet...basically, you name it, I’ve tried it. I had trouble with anti-depressants in that the ones I tried gave me weird side effects. The anti-anxiety pill I took made me pretty jumpy. I have trouble with stress. Anything beyond my normal sends me into high anxiety. Honestly, the only thing that keeps me going is responsibility to my family.
  14. We are on our second child doing TPS. My ds 10th grade is doing American history, English 3, economics, and algebra 2. My older child has done a bunch of English classes, a science class, and some worldview classes. I wasn’t as impressed with their science classes, but I feel like it makes homeschool high school doable. My ds will continue with an almost full schedule next year.
