You know, saying "ignore this thread" to this group is like saying "don't push the big red button!" 

Homeschoolers.     They always think the rules don't apply to them.

Coming out of my long time lurking because I couldn't ignore this thread..  :leaving:

Any of you who pray, will you please pray hard for the next day or so? Unspoken, and doesn't involve my family. Unless we end up stepping in to help, anyway. Thanks!

I've decided against this because apparently you can still have the disease without the markers.

 

I think what I've discovered, on my own path, is this:

 

1. Some doctors don't care what your symptoms are, they only look at test results.  This may not be true of your doctors now, but think about the long term.

 

2. Some issues have genetic predispositions that affect your children. If you have celiac disease, I'd think you'd for sure want all of your children tested....and for them to be aware to have their children tested.

Would you be irritated if you went to put your dh’s shirts away and found that he had written on the hangers which shirt goes on which hanger and what order it goes in? Lately I’ve been struggling not to be annoyed at every little thing he does but sheesh. I feel like I’m owed some sort of heads up. I know it’s a bit much to expect, “Hey, I know my OCD makes a lot of extra work for you, thanks for being patien,†but I would appreciate at least, “hey, I want an easier system for myself, so do you mind...â€

I agree that noting it on paper is probably less kind than he thought it would be.

 

I would say something. "When I just see it written down like an order, instead of hearing it from you, it seems really impersonal, like a job, and not something I do because I love you and care for our family."

 

Or, if you've agreed that you will do the housework so he can go to work without worry so you can homeschool etc. then I'd give him some visibility to the time you have available for laundry and cooking. Then explain that you are happy to do the extra work, but x, y, or z is probably going to fall by the wayside. Maybe something you don't really care about... like cleaning the fridge?

I agree on both counts. As someone who has been exhausted since she was 21 and describes herself as old for her age I am curious to know if I have it. I have had less energy and more pain than most 60 year olds since my early 20s. I've been told by doctors that if I don't have diarrhea, stomach pain etc. that I don't have celiac and I've only recently learned that that isn't true, mostly due to Jean.

FWIW, Slache, I think I'd want to have some basic blood work (including inflammation markers) run as well if you have a doctor who is game and insurance that will pay for it.

She seems cool, they will and I have a list. Thanks. My mom has Hashimotos, no thyroid and my dad has type 2 diabetes so I want that and all the basics.

 

Bloody Booya.

Tell them as much.

:D I did. I told them that if they exceed the complaining threshold today, they will do my housekeeping along with their own.

 

ETA: At that point, they decided silence probably was golden.

The people praying for him wondered how he was doing. I gave them the last update. They said to tell you if there is anything specific you would like them to address with prayer, to let them know.  :001_smile:

Glad to hear he is doing so well!

Awww, thank you. :D I'm gonna PM you. :)

Yes, my boys got to do some cleaning yesterday.  

 

I also told them that I was planning on renovating the landscaping here, and I might order a ton of soil and lava rocks for them to haul if they didn't shape up.

Oh, so Dad ripped out his trach again. So, he's back in his "boxing gloves". Now, he's hollering "I don't want to be in this place! See that boy? He is MEAN!" (Mom says the poor CNA is one of the nicest, and that this is expected, but still!) He also just told my mom, "Darling dear, I need to go to work. I just want to work." 
I think he's incredibly bored and can't make the connection that he CANT work right now.

FUN TIMES, y'all! FUN TIMES. 

Also, I forget to post here sometimes, but my mom always tags me in her daily updates on FB. If you want to keep up that way, just PM me and I'll send you a link to my FB so you can add me. :D Just don't be creepers and stalk me. That could make things awkard on the ITT board!

Hmm...let's see. There's a garden to rake, and soil to dig...

I am trying to be gracious. I have my own hormonal reasons to be easily nettled at present, and I'm trying not to be overbearing, but there is work to be done. :laugh:

Ok. Bonzo (aka Juliet when she’s at her squirreliest) had the house in an uproar and I desperately needed to get my shower. She hates being in the bathroom with me while I shower even though I bring in toys and chewies. And I can’t trust her to be unsupervised. So I put her out on the deck for twenty minutes. She is now clinging to me like I had abandoned her. I suppose that I could have crated her but she was due a potty break...

I guess it’s not really the labels. It’s that he tends to deal with stress by micromanaging us while simultaneously getting lax about the stuff that bothers me (not clearing his dishes from the table, stacking trash with the dishes).

 

Ah, well, why didn't you say so?  ENB is enroute to do some 'splainin' !!!   :smash:

Start putting her out there with a puzzle toy while you go inside for a few minutes and then come back out. Gradually increase the length of time. That should help her not to feel like she's being abandoned when she has to go out on her own for a little bit.

FWIW, Spud, my oldest DS has anxiety and has some OCDish tendencies. I know it is waaaaay different when you have a spouse you are dealing with and not a child, but I get it, somewhat. I have to keep telling myself, it’s about him and not how he feels about me. I am learning not to take things personally, but it is hard.

Coffee #3!!!!  ( :leaving: )

 

 

 

 

We have not drowned yet.  Though I went out for some errands this morning and almost drove into the sea (not my fault...it had moved.) Treacherous!

 

 

Tonight is pizza, and I finally snagged a copy of Wonder.   :thumbup:    Just hoping we have electricity.

 

Happy Friday!

Of all the free things I have ever gotten in my life, free 15 minute consults have got to be the most valuable. Add up six consults and you end up with like an hour and a half of good chatting before spending an hour on professional services!

Professional Procrastinator might not be what she's looking for.

First of all, you don't know what she's looking for, okay. So don't make assumptions. And second I happen to be a professional of whatever anyone wants to pay me for. Especially if it involves nothing. I'm very good at that.

I'm eating a flourless chocolate peanut butter cake just like my Paleolithic ancestors did.

Better. I think 4 hours in a building with no heat and it being like 35 outside really did me in. Normally I do my job really quickly and get out but I'm training this chick who lied about her abilities and it's taking her 4 hours to do 20 minutes worth of work. I still have so much to do! I can do the rest from home but this woman will never be trained!

 

Eta: COFFEE! BIBLE! SO MANY NAPS!

 

Leave her a list and go home.
