  1. Ive lived here my whole life and didnt realize we had those here! LOL. I was more scared of the boars around the tent than snakes!
  2. So...I was sitting around one afternoon and finally decided to just do it! Ive been contemplating going back to college for years now..but I keep getting caught up with life. I finally realized my fear is holding me back and I think I need to face that fear and go for it! I went ahead and registered for my prerequisites this past week and I am just working on figuring out how to manage school with 3 kiddos. I think it will be a little better then if I did it a few years back. Thankfully, I have my BSW already so I can attend an accelerated program...3 semesters! I only have Ant. 1 & 2
  3. I prefer Spectrum but I bought the one at costco last time...Spectrum has no coconut flavor and a higher flash point.
  4. my middle is extremely shy. I used to tell people that she was shy and just move on. I would push her behind me when people wouldnt listen or tried to grab her hair (they always want to touch her curls) grrr. And I would start talking to them to get them to change the topic.
  5. So after my drama last week with the allergy mess...my dr. asked me to wear a blood pressure cuff for 24 hours. Has anyone done this? Each time I went into the dr. last week my bp was high...but the cardiologist was not concerned as he knows I have white coat syndrome. I have monitored it at home and it has been very low, 101/70-115/78 with occasionally high readings...which he says is normal. Either way, he wants to be thorough. I agreed...I went in today and was nervous about my bp so of course it was 145/105 I knew it would be up...then this stupid cuff goes every 30 minutes and switche
  6. I got my dog from a lady that was rehoming her. She was 5 months old. She said she was housebroken but she wasnt. she is a shihtzu mix. I read a lot of information online from shihtzu forum and they had amazing information for small doggies. I had to crate her all day and night and only take her out in small time frames when we could stay with her. We spent all the time with her when she was out of the crate. Food was fed to her on the floor of her crate. She was very good within a week after WE became consistent. She never barks to go out...I have to watch her as she just walks over to t
  7. is the grammar mixed in her LA book? Our school grammar was in a separate book last year in private school and this year it is mixed in with her language arts book in public school.
  8. we had a notice come home this past week in my daughters class. THey informed the parents prior and you could opt out of the series. BUT...I cant imagine she had approval to show her OWN birth! That just sounds too much to be true? Is is possible she was saying it was like her birth and the kids misunderstood? I cant imagine any district allowing that! wow. Otherwise, I wouldnt have any problems with a birth film.
  9. I would say you need to start with a psychologist for some therapy. They will work with her on learning to manage her anxiety before it becomes worse. We went through 2-3 different people to find the right match! My dd no longer goes but she used to have terrible anxiety. I would say if it is so bad that you need meds you need to be doing both meds & therapy. Your primary wouldnt be able to do that...you can usually find an office with both a dr. & psychologist. I imagine you would have to try a few different meds to get the right one. I did breathing exercises with my DD at one point
  10. I had something not as bad...but similar happen to me last monday...eating crab my throat and chest started closing. I can relate to the emotional fear! So scary! I have both our epi pens now in my purse and the Jr. one has a practice pen in it as well. The pharmacist says never wait...epi pen & 911 immediately. The pharmacist explained you may not realize you are not breathing but any tightness is 911! I am so sorry you had to experience this with your child:grouphug:
  11. When we do disney we pack a backpack with a change of clothes. I usually throw a few jackets and wear a pair of light pants. If you have a stroller...I would just pack your pants as well and maybe a blanket. The lows are in the low 50 this weekend through early tuesday..but it looks like it may go back up to 60-70 low after that...light jackets should be enough.
  12. We have had rain and wind for the last 2 days here in S. Florida. Its been steady 18-20 winds with 38-48 + gusts. Beautiful out now with all my windows open. Such a change. This storm had a lot of lightning in it yesterday...today we just have wind. And we are just outside the warning zone. It has been very heavy rains. I cant imagine the combo of being in cold weather with this thing. I would prepare if it is headed your way. Definitely bring your plants & furniture in from outside...lots of flashlights.
  13. I cant imagine the stress you are both feeling. I am so sorry. I hope you can find a resolution soon! I would find out if there is anything the dr. can write on their forms that proves the diagnosis is not Self limiting! I think HR is the only way to fight that one!
  14. We have aflac...and all we had to do was have the dr. fill out the forms with the issues and they processed them...BUT...he had a diagnosis. Im not sure if that is the difference? We had to submit every so many weeks but they always run very smoothly. Aflac and trustmark have been wonderful. When we DO run into problems...We always start with HR! They are usually the only ones that can get the ball rolling. I guess they have different contacts in these insurance agencies.
  15. Ive never had a reaction like this..but the dr. and pharmacist stated any tightening gets an epi pen! So that sounds scary to me but I am carrying it. I have mine and my daughters in my purse. I have a new updated one :)
