So, we are back on the protocol, kinda. This week has been a week of catch up for me still muddled with things I’ve obliged myself to. I honestly need to learn the lesson not to volunteer for anything during the week and during the day. I don’t know what possessed me to volunteer to RUN the school book fair. But, that’s neither here or there on to my beautiful wonderful kids.
This week has been challenging for my two older kids and the two year old is just progressing along.
Just about everyday for the past week, Jai Lynn has been saying she doesn’t want to go to school. That it’s too noisy, too crowded and too big. I first made sure that she wasn’t being bullied then I went into action. So we are having her leave a bit early from her classes before everyone else to lessen some of that hallway anxiety. She’s been doing a great job with her work. On her MI ACCESS test (a stupid test they give every year) she has improved greatly from last year she is almost at level in math and surpassed in reading. We are still working on comprehension because although she can read at a sixth grade level, she can only comprehend at about a third grade level. So I am working on tools that we can use for the reminder of the school year and summer to get it together for her and close the gap.
I’m not even going to say what supplements she took this week because I’m still not on track and some days we did everything we had and other days she did not. If she wasn’t in the supplement line in the am she missed out. I am very short on time in the morning and don’t have time to track a kid down to take a supplement. Once I get back into my “groove” it will get easier.
He has had a pretty good week. Teacher said he has been doing great on his work and that he can now count money up to $2.00 using coins. He has had 2 seizures this week, both were at school, the first was on Tuesday and he had to come home because I didn’t send in his usual jogging pants that he likes to wear after his seizures I sent in jeans. So that made him very upset and he had to come home. Also, on that day he was still having nasal drainage and some coughing. So I brought him home, put him in his jammies and let him relax. He had another seizure today, I took in the jogging pants so he stayed at school and had a pretty good day afterwards. When he got home I noticed that his eyes are a bit red and that the tips of his ears are red and warm. The eyes are a sign of detox the ears are a sign of some sort of allergic reaction so he had some stuff going on.
Today in the grocery store he was very easily re-directed, when he started to get less focused he came back to me to hold my hand, he helped me out in the store (I do that to keep him busy and keep him from becoming so distracted) and he listened so well. I had to put this in writing so on a tough Autism/ADHD day I could come back to this post and see how far he has come and I could remember how great he is as a kid and how much potential he has.
Same supplement story for him.
Now today I did start the castor oil wraps back up for both and the coconut keifer. I don’t know what I did to my milk keifer because it’s gummy, I think when it really warmed up for those few days last week it threw it off a bit. That change in temp messed with my keifer production. But we will get that back on track. I have not started my kombucha yet hoping to start it this upcoming week.
I am learning to not beat myself up when I can’t follow the protocol like I should. I do what I can when I can and I keep it moving. The Divine Child drink has a new ingredient in it Tamarid and it helps detox the body from fluoride poisoning. I have also taken out the toothpaste with fluoride, next is our water.
When you are battling Autism, Epilepsy, G6PD, or whatever your loved one faces, remember you are only human, and sometimes your going to miss giving a supplement or medication, everything is not going to be on schedule no matter how well you pencil it in. Be OK with not being perfect, be OK with being tired, be OK with just wanting to enjoy your kids where they are sometimes.
Always try and find the good in your child, it’s there. I’ve shifted my thinking for my sons, instead of saying, “he’s so bad” or “he’s never focused” or “he’s just a mess to “my God boy you are super curious, let’s help you discover” I’m learning to help them discover a world that they have never known. It keep me from going mad and it keeps them wanting to learn and happy. I work on my son’s a lot because they are the most work. Even though the two year old isn’t Autistic or anything else he is still a handful. Funny but sometimes it seems as if he and my older son are at the same level mentally so it’s often like having a two year old and maybe a 5 or 6 year old double teaming me. My daughter is “cool in the breeze” our largest struggle with her right now is, handling her emotions and keeping her cool.
The kids haven’t meditated or done yoga in a while so we have to get back on it soon, I think a lot of our issues stem from them not having that inner peace on lock.
Well, that is all that is going on with my family. I’ll be starting classes soon along with running a business and a household. I’m learning to shift my thinking and get somethings together. I’ll do a me blog post later.
But kids are doing OK, we’re not where we would like to be but we’re sure as heck not where we where and that my friends is a great thing. Looking forward to more gains with all three kids and looking forward to sharing our victories and defeats with you all.
Until next time
Wishing you Health, Wellness and Recovery,
