    I don't have time to try to find the book right now, but in one of Madeline L'Engle's published journals she has a bit about intercessory prayer that stuck with me.  Something along the lines of prayer is neither a vending machine nor a magic spell, but praying for another is an act of love and love is never useless or wasted.    

    If anyone know which book this is in, I'd love to know. I tried to do a quick search, but wasn't able to find much.

  2. I'm thinking about doing the 3 month subscription on the DDP Yoga app. 

    Tell me about your experience with it, please. I really need something to get excited about doing. It would be great to lose weight, but I really need to focus on being more active and getting in better shape.

    OCD also "develops"in many people during puberty. My daughter has OCD and her OCD obsession/compulsions are food related. It took us four relapses of anorexia to figure that out, diagnose OCD and find a great ERP therapist and med that worked.  She had OCD traits as young as 7, developed anorexia and developed full-blown OCD at 13/14.

    Yes. I didn't include all the details in my post. She has had anxiety and suspected OCD for many years. She was also adopted from China at 21 months old. She isn't restricting food due to wanting to lose weight or thinking she's overweight. She's doing it because her OCD thinks she needs to save food so that we don't run out. Or save food so that someone else can have more. She was doing really well and came off her anxiety meds in late 2019. Then Covid hit ...... That sent her back into a hard place.

    This may help? Symptoms and medical history are the main way it is diagnosed, there are some links on that page to those. https://pandasnetwork.org/diagnosis/

    Thank you. We are seeing the Pediatrician this Thursday. Kiddo is still losing weight because she is restricting her food. I thought it was her OCD latching on to needing to save food so we don't run out. But I think it's wise to rule out PANS/PANDAS.

  5. Long story, but how do I ask our Pediatrician to rule out PANS/PANDAS?

    My 13 year old does have a history of Anxiety/OCD, but last summer, she had been doing so well and Covid just sent her back into a pretty bad place.

  6. My DH has been working from home 100% of the time since March 2020.  He works in our bedroom, which is directly above our living room. Our upstairs floors are creaky and he paces when he's on calls. It drives me INSANE. Plus, he'll just show up downstairs randomly all freaking day long. 

    I'm an off the charts introvert and all these people in my house are seriously making me nuts. 

  7. I voted that I'm adjacent to it. I haven't been diagnosed or evaluated for ASD. But it wouldn't shock me at all if I was diagnosed. ETA: I hate phone calls. I've always thought maybe it was due to maybe Auditory Processing Disorder (also undiagnosed) or a sensory thing.

  8. Although, I currently live in the flight path of a master jet base. When I first visited here when I was dating DH, I was like HOW in the world do people live here? This is insanity! Now, I don't even notice the jet noise. So I suppose it's just what you get used to.
