I ordered a few books yesterday from Amazon.com. I believe they should be arriving around the 21st. I hope I get them then, as I have had maxed out my vacation time at work, and have taken off Spring Break to be with my kids, and hopefully read.
I ordered “The MS Recovery Diet”, “What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Autoimmune Disorders”, and “The Psoriasis Cure: A Drug-Free Guide to Stopping & Reversing the Symptoms of Psoriasis”
My good friend from work had also ordered for me the “The Multiple Sclerosis Diet Book” and gave it to me today, so I have lots of reading to do. The idea is to hopefully come up with a diet combination that will not only help me deal with MS, but will also help my son with his Psoriasis.
Once I go see this Natural-path on the 18th, I’ll see how comfortable we are with him, then if things seem good, I would like to get Haiden to see him as well. I need to find out something for him. My son Haiden 8 years old, friendly, full of love, and energy, and he is a 2nd grader right now and this can be a trying time when kids are learning to deal with others, and some kids can be very cruel. 😦
I took him to a local Play-structure, and actually had a parent that wisked their kid away from Haiden quickly and then when they saw me watching, asked if his chicken pox was still contagious.
I was a bit offended, mostly, because if my son had chickenpox, then he definitely would NOT be out in public. I realize there are parents that would do that type of thing.. but still! That coupled with the fact that they don’t even look like chickenpox. I can’t blame the mother for looking out for her child I suppose, but there are ways to do it without making it so obvious, I could tell it hurt Haiden’s feelings, and he knew exactly why she did it.
However, despite my frustration inside, I calmly reassured her that he wasn’t contagious, and that it was Psoriasis, not chickenpox. She set her child back down, but I could tell that she still wasn’t excited that the two of them were getting along and playing so nicely together.
Haiden prays every night for the same things, that his friends and family are safe and made healthy, that God will help him not to be afraid when he is baptized, and also for God to please help him get the Psoriasis off.
I often think to myself that I should encourage him to wear long-sleeve shirts, because then people wouldn’t see, and might not bug him as much about it. Except…. that he actually is needing whatever sunlight he can get on them, so that doesn’t make sense. Plus I don’t want him to feel like I’m being judgemental of him either, that would definately hurt his feelings probably worse than what any stranger would say to him.
On another note ^^ Thank you Lisa from Brass & Ivory for The Less-than-three award! I ❤ your blog as well 🙂
