  1. My daughter's was chosen to go with her dance studio to the Florida Dance Masters can you tell me what it is like? Would you go again and anything you would think would be helpful?
  2. Is there any gem mining place near Asheboro or somewhere within an hour of there that has quality gems? My boys love finding treasure, and we are going to the NC zoo this weekend.
  3. I got clogged milk ducts with my 2nd child. I would get in the shower with warm water and massage the clogged duct. I would apply pressure to the spot and let the baby nurse in football position and cradle position.
  4. Thank you all for your post I am going to call the doctor in the morning. I will keep you update. I would have gotten back with you sooner on the posts but my mother in law, husband's grandfather and my cousin came to visit this afternoon.
  5. I am beyond stressed with life. I have tried so hard not to take anything and do natural remedies nothing is working. We eventually would like to adopt and I know certain countries frown upon mental illness. I am near my breaking point. I spent all day yesterday crying. I am in a funk and I can't seem to get out. If you have taken antidepressants what worked for you. I am thinking about Wellbutrin?
  6. I am doing the pregnancy support service walk for life, we are doing it as a family. My team is Walk 4 Life. I would love some of the Well Trained Minders to join me.

  7. Feb 1st I spent $4.75 today buying suckers for a co-op party and index cards. We are doing Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University. I need to spend little to no money we are working on paying off credit cards.
  8. To make this I used 2 pounds of London Broil and I trimmed all of the fat off. I cut up 5 organic carrots, 1 onion, 2 celery hearts, 2 medium potatoes. I use 1-4 ounce can of mushrooms. You take a 1/4 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of water, and a teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of pepper and make a gravy mixture. You coat the roast with gravy. Then you add in carrots, celery, onion, and potatoes that have been diced up. The mushrooms are the final thing you add. I am baking a 350. I am going to cook for 2 hours. I will let you know if it needs to cook longer. I put all the ingredients in the recipe builder and this is 7 points a serving!!!
  9. What brand Coconut Oil do you buy ? I have had my thyroid tested and it was normal. I have been doing low carb will trying to lose weight I never knew that could improve focus. Thank you for all of your suggestions.
  10. I am thinking Fish Oils with Omega 3's. Is Country Life a good brand of vitamin and supplements? What other supplements help attention span, energy level and ability to focus. Thanks
  11. He hasn't been diagnosed with anything but ADHD. I have talked to the doctor about more testing I don't think he has dyslexia. I am going to watch the Charlotte Mason videos and try to have a more laid back approach with him. I am a results person and I want so hard to help him that maybe my anxiety is affecting him. I remain calm around him but I night when I go to bed at night all I want to do is cry myself to sleep. Hopefully Dr. Milowic has some suggestions.
  12. The doctor suggest the Melatonin but I read somewhere it could cause Low Sperm count later in life and I was unsure so I never gave it to him. He is taking it at 7:45 every morning. I am going back to school this month and my mom is taking over the kids main subjects so he will be getting up earlier then 7:15-7:30 which was our usual time. All of the kids will be waking up around 6:45. I give him his meds 1st thing. I will ask Dr. Milowic about the longer EEG. I just don't know what to do to help him. I am at a loss. I have searched the internet for the last three months. It has gotten to the point that my mom said unless he went back to the doctor she was unsure if she could handle him.
  13. The Focalin worked well for the first 5 months and we upped it around 6 months ago and around three months ago is when he has started going bonkers! He was orginally on 5 mg we up it to 10mg after 2 weeks and he has been on 10mg and a 5mg in the afternoon for 6 months. Dr. Milowic is one of the best I just can't figure out what I need to ask for what test? It takes up to 6 months to a year to get an appointment with Dr.Milowic. He has ADD and we had the MRI done because he is having lots of trouble retaining things. We go over something for months and months and he will forget it. It will be simple small words for example he will have trouble with these words (that, what, which) but he can read words like important, American and more. The months of the year he still misses October or May almost everytime but he can do complicated Math problems in his head. I even tell him to help his sister who is in fourth grade sometime with a mental math problem. It test last year in 1st grade with the Woodcock Johnson and he did 2.4 month when we weren't even finished with 1st grade math, his reading skills were K.10 month and his writing was K 2 month. He has delays but he is making lots of strides. He has gotten up to reading level when we tested him this year at the therapy office in December. My mom has her masters in Education and she worked in several different classroom settings. She tweeked a reading program for Jack and he has been doing great but it is hard to get him to sit still without crying, fussing, whinning and manipulating!!!!
  14. Nakia, He has been like this for a while. He wants to stay up all night. We increased his dose six months ago and he is still acting like this. Do you like Concerta? I have heard some medicine have side effects and may increase risk of depression
