I'm getting worse again.  I've got a lot going on and it's pretty overwhelming.  I have pelvic organ prolapse, big-time adrenal burn-out, and the return of postpartum depression.  I had thought most of my problems were winter-induced.  Like Seasonal Affective Disorder.  But I'm beginning to think otherwise. My ears are more sensitive than they've ever been.  My left eardrum tremors.  At least I think it's my eardrum.  It feels like it's a muscle spasm in my ear.  It sounds like fluttering.  It happens most when there's a lot of sudden noise and it's rather irritating.

It wouldn't surprise me if non-secretors have, as a general rule, super-sensitive ears.

Since reading information on the Tomatis therapy, I have become convinced that my ears are a big problem for me and are perhaps the root of many of my problems.

I was just reading on the old "Are You A Nervous Nonnie?" thread and I remembered that I had gotten better being on the diet.  

People, I have to say this:  The voices of my kids hurt my ears.  When we're outside, it's no problem at all.  When we're inside, even happy screeches make me cringe.  Even their normal talking voices make me feel like I need to turn my left ear away from them so I don't hear it so loud.  Normally I turn my left ear toward someone so I can hear them better.  Now I find myself saying, "Shhhhh, not so loud--it's hurting my ears" to my children.  I don't want them to have to tip-toe around all the time in order not to "hurt Mommy".  It's not fair to them.

I feel like I spend all day in defense/survival mode.  I'm defending myself against pain.  Pelvic pain, back pain, and the pain coming from noise.  I had doubled up on B vitamins on the advice of my midwife who had said they would help with the postpartum depression 6 months ago.  I also doubled up on the recommended dosage of my thyroid/adrenal supplement.  It helped initially, but it's not helping anymore.  I read around here somewhere that you're not supposed to take adrenal supplements long-term.  I didn't know that.  I've been taking adrenal supps of some sort off and on (mostly on) for 10 years now.  Both my parents also have adrenal fatigue despite pretty good diets (Daddy's doing the Teacher diet and Mama's doing the standard O diet, although I think she'd do better on the Explorer diet).  Mama says she finally feels better after all these years because we're all out of the house (she wasn't insulting us) and she has time and money to focus on her health.  She seems so normal now.  Menopause is over.

Whatever it is that runs in my family (serotonin deficiency?) drives the men to suicide and the women to alcoholism or depression (manic-depression? bi-polar?--I don't know if there's much of a difference).  Grandmother was the first to break the poverty/alcoholism cycle.  But she still had other major issues.  My aunt is on anti-depressants.  So is my sister and my cousin, who said they went on them for postpartum depression after the births of their boys (18 mos. and 5 years, respectively) and never went off them.

I was reading the other day on a Moms with ADD site that manic-depression is sometimes misdiagnosed as ADHD, especially in children.  The "manic" part looks like hyperactivity.

I have always been able to work off stress by going out in the garden and pulling weeds or shoveling dirt or going for a long hike.  Even if the children came with me, I could burn off steam by moving.  Because of the POP, now I can't even do that.  I got Christine Kent's book, Saving the Whole Woman, her workout DVD, First Aid For Prolapse, and I joined her forums.  It's really wonderful and I can see that it's helping.  But I'm still having pain and other symptoms that I'd prefer not to divulge here, that she said, "You need to go see a specialist."  Most people there are encouraged to exercise in a pelvic organ-friendly manner, and eat right, and much of their troubles will just go away.  While mine have improved, she still thinks I should go see a specialist.

So here I am trying to figure out how to fix my ears and fix my pelvic and back pain and fix the depression.  I'm too young for all this.  I feel like I'm 80.  If I were 80, it wouldn't bother me so much.  I'd expect it.  But I'm 32 and my body is falling apart, and most of the supplements suggested to me are either really expensive or can't be taken while breastfeeding.

I feel like my entire life is a Catch 22.  "Damned if I do, damned if I don't," my mother used to say.

Thanks for listening.

Dearest Ribbit,, you have a lot to deal with .. yet you sound completley sane.. you are OK, as you are expressing your self .. so for today trust that YOU are OK..

for your ears could you try to put one of those foam earplugs in the ear to maybe cut down some of the irritation to noice and the kids would maybe bother you a little less.. - in one ear only so as not to add to your distress.

By polar and Hyperactivety are so different that I don't think it could be mis-labeled.. but I do think when you feel overwhelmed that you could feel like hyperactivity.  ADD is the difficulty in thinking and thinking being all over the place.. in this THREAD you don't seem to be in that state of mind.. your post sounds reasonable and cohesive.. just that you have a LOT to deal with - and that is just a fact - -- nothing in need to be hidden.. look at it as a long list to juggle.. but to make it easier to deal and remember it all I would make a list of all things large and small and then honestly give your self some credit ..You ared oing the best you can... YES, IT is difficult to juggle when all the balls are square or pointed or loud or just difficult.

SO KEEP UP with your posting here today.. I am here all day .. with you.. OK?

About your meds.. You need to have a doctor review the adrenals because doubbling up on meds might be the problem if you are doing it for such a long time.. to much adrenal supplements could be making you gittery and then sort of afraid.. insecure and overwhelmed...

Can you think on that a little?/ and tell us here exactly how much you are taking compared to what they reccomend on the bottle?

for right now I am sending you a big hug.. and will be here for your next post.. ok?


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Dear Leanne, I use just Vit C and adaptogens fro 10 years without problems  I feel rather good, but I have not 4 children to look after and care ! Can you organize to have help for the housekeeping and the children for just some months, to spoil yourself just a little bit? I think you need and deserve it, you should give you the better chances to rest and relax you can now. And if Christine Kent says you should see a physician, look for a smart one soon ! I hope you feel better quickly. Hang on you'll get there, but
you need a little help more in your house and with your children, till you feel better. Maria Giovanna
PS I remember two friends here underweight with their second newborn and you have 4 chidren at home all the days, homeschooling them too. Please take care !

I totally understand.  I started this "way of living" about 5 months ago.  I was feeling really good until last week when I started feeling tired, stressed, irritable, experiencing mental blocks, and feeling the urge to eat EVERYTHING! I finally realized after reevaluating the last three weeks of diet and exercise that I was over exerting myself.  I was feeling the more cardio the better.  We "A's" CAN'T DO THAT! This is the first "diet" that has actually worked for me where I didn't have to take diet pills.  I am 34 years old and have simular problems as you.  Good luck!

I can’t offer much help, just sympathy.

My AB- Father had hyper sensitive ears.  I couldn’t eat a potato chip in front of him.  I’d try very hard to chew slow & soft, but to no avail.  He liked to dine out but wouldn’t go to a restaurant like red Lobster even though he loved seafood because it was too full of children and thus too loud.  He’s only go to the quiet subdued fine dining establishments.  His Father was an alcoholic.  My father had a rule never to drink before evening.  My son & I follow that rule.  He was a chain smoker.  He drank tea all day long.  I’m addicted to caffeine & nicotine.

My mother was a Manic-Depressive.  Her mother & sister are rumored to have committed suicide because of depression.   My Mother was suicidal but never succeeded.  I have had some major rough times in my life, but I look the situation straight on and try to handle it the best I can.  My motto is “Inch by Inch it is a synch but yard by yard is very hard.”  My Mother always expected everyone else to help her.  I expect no one to help me and am pleasantly surprised & happy when somebody does.

My philosophy is the more I know and understand about my genetic tendencies, like being a non-secretor, alcoholism, & depression, the more I can help myself to find ways to protect myself.

Being able to express your feelings in writing, like on this forum is a great help.  Getting them out is important.  Being in denial is what causes the major crises.

How well are you following the diet, I only ask as I have noticed a big improvement in my temper since being 100 ish compliant. but if I miss a meal I get bad tempered - Emily is worse lol she just has to be full all the time. but then again we are O's.

We found that this help with Emily too it's a time out mat with a built in timer - all our friends have now bought it and love it.

http://www.gro.co.uk/vmchk/Time-Out-Pad.html watch the video

every parent should get one - and no I have no association with the company lol

I stopped, Smoking, Drinking, but still have a problem stopping eating sweets. got it down to one square of chocolate a day. dark chocolate at that and 90 cocoa.

looking for a 100 % choc without flavouring but haven't found one yet. so many other things to sort first this is my one non compliance. it relates to about 10 grams of choc a day. but it is supposed to mellow you. is that the same for A's

Sounds like a magnesium deficiency; adrenal burnout, extreme sensitivity to noise (does your whole body feel like one big ear?). Try bumping up your mag intake and see if symptoms abate...Are you able to get sleep? Sleep is healing.  A good acupuncturist could help with the prolapse. Wishing you betterness from the left coast.

I know your going through a lot trying to keep up with four children, with the way you are feeling, I just wanted to ask you to check what you are eating and taking in (pill wise) and make sure you are not mixing corn and beans together, that leads to many of the problems you described above.  Giving you a HUG and suggesting you take a little time to yourself, each day, even if only an hour.  I raised three children alone, and my counselor at the time it was all so new to me (being alone) insisted, I get out, at least 1 hr, seven days a week.  I was lucky enough to have a 13 year old, I could trust with the children, for that long.  Sometimes, it was only to go down the road to the lake and look out and relax, take in some deep breaths and release them slowly.  It helped!

Try not to leave the world's problems effect you, but take note of them, and realize how you are so blessed.  Take it one step at a time.  

Does watching a movie with the children relax you?

Watching Tv may be okay for a sort time, but there is a lot of evidence that it makes the problems worse by over using TV, but if it helps do it. just test the reactions over time

All of us get a bit stressed with young ones, so times a lot, a long walk, if it's realistic and possible cures many a woe.

If you ever get the time read a book written by Aric Sigman called "remotely controlled" it well worth it. if that's to long Google it and get the basics

I had observed my sister having the fourth child.. not easy.. I think its just to much in these modern days to live in small rooms .. no cows to milk and chickens to laugh at..

children are work and chores and take the air right out of you even if you are not having half the issues you deal with.. give your self some space.. even a half door or a childrens gate to your own room might help to give you - space - to see the children but them a little away from your own air space..

if need be a soft bed of pillows in front of your door so they can paly there.. take some time with a soft cloth on your eyes.. put pillows on the side of your head prop it up so you dont have to from side to side.. a soft blanket over you..

and finally in your mind for 10 seconds at a time.. imagin being in the favorite spot in the world.. it is worth it.. the mind does not know truth from fiction.. only what you tell it..

by comparison the body never forgets on injurie.. it needs to heal.. but the mind can will it to heal ONE % at a time..    


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Ribbit, I'm so sorry you're suffering, but did you ever have a mold test done on the interior air
in your house?  Didn[t you start having problems when you moved?  Didn't  you say in another post that you've got water damage in the house?  And that the kids were sick a lot of this
past winter? If I were you, I'd have someone come out and do a mold spore count. I called a biological engineer to test my indoor air. It was as bad as our outdoor air.

"Mold is an invisible microscopic organism and it is everywhere.  It is in the air and grows on everything.  Typically we can’t see it until it grows into larger colonies.  It is the most widespread living organism in thousands of varieties indoors and out.

Mold puts out showers of spores into the air that can be in the millions. It is present in highest numbers in the spring and fall, but is present in all seasons and is often underestimated for the vast amount of havoc it can perpetrate on one’s health.

Molds make toxins called mycotoxins that can do the same damage to our health as any chemical such as formaldehyde, toluene, natural gas or trichloethylene.  They can even initiate cancers, cause chemical sensitivity and just about any symptom you can think of ranging from high blood pressure to depression.

Not only do molds trigger typical organs such as nose, chest or skin with allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, asthma, rashes, hives and eczema, but the brain can also be the target organ.

Mold can be a primary cause of depression, obsessive compulsion, panic attacks, anxiety attacks, schizophrenia, tourettes syndrome, migraines, headaches, or inability to concentrate.

In susceptible individuals mold can also cause dermatitis, dizziness, fatigue, algias, irritability, weakness, burning eyes, arthritis, lower IQ, chest pain, shortness of breath, confusion, hyperactivity, symptoms attributed to MS, heart palpitations, cravings for sweets or carbohydrates, gastrointestinal distress such as irritable bowel, indigestion, heartburn, etc., and much more. "

Ribbit, so sorry. I sent you a PM.

Chloe, good call on the mold. I actually had to leave my job last fall due to mold. I was sick on and off from the time I started and when I finally dragged myself to the doc, they said sinus infection brought on by mold. I could smell it in the building it was that bad. I had other symptoms, not just respiratory.

Ribbit...I think your post was really well stated and you express yourself very well.  This are not rantings of a crazy person but rather expressions of frustration and the desire to be able to live life with less physical/emotional suffering.  I think everyone deserves that.  I hope you find your answers here...I do believe they are here.

Mold may play a large part in this.  Don't overlook this.

Another thing is I believe if you are eating properly you don't need that many supps anyway.  I wouldn't fret over what you can't have during breast feeding.

I wonder if you get what you need in other areas.  Do you get time for your own creativity?  Do you get 15-20 minutes a day to just "be" and breathe?  I have doubts with all the work a mommy does that you possibly get this time.  If your tank is empty and you are fatigued how do you fill it?  You cannot give if you have nothing stored up.  I'm not saying these are your issues but I'm asking if this part of your health is cared for?  If it is not this can make all other reasons for illness and pain far worse.

You seem like such a well spoken, lovely and caring woman and I hope you find a way to feel better soon.

Keep posting.

Hugs.

Anyone can do their own mold testing by purchasing a kit.

Ribbit, I am thinking of you and hoping you feel relief soon. I have had severe depression/anxiety from the age of 21-27. It has interfered with my ability to function at times. Now that I found the BTD, I can finally say that the deep depression is gone and in remission and I no longer need medication. What I do need to do everyday is stay on the BTD and eat my Swami beneficials and I NEED to eat 1 can of sardines/day.

The sardines everyday is not optional for me. The sardines act as a necessary supplement which helps the omega 3 balance in my head. I've experimented with going off sardines and it is not good for me. Eating a can of sardine everyday with 1 tbs of sour cream (mashed with the sardines, the sour cream hides the fishy taste) has been one of the most important "supplements". The sardines need to be in water and not oil or it doesn't work for me. I think the Omega 3 balance is very delicate in my brain and I need a large dose everyday. Fish oil may be good for some people but I don't think my brain knows what to do with it and I have only found relief from sardines.

The Crowne Prince sardines brand is my favorite.

I am also highly sensitive to wheat and can easily get depressed from eating something with just a little wheat. Spelt and Farro are fine for me and don't give me those depressive moods. Good luck Ribbit and I hope you keep posting and update us on how you're feeling. I appreciate all the posts from you and your honesty and advice.

Sharon what a nice post and interesting about your need for sardines.. interesting.. where did you ever figure that out??

it makes sense as you explain it.. I dont eat fish so I would not know what they yaste like, but if they are good for you then you found a wonderful way to keep your balance..  so good to hear..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

omg, I just finished going through a bag of stuff from a few years back, early btd, days and one thing that caught my attention, is exactly what you stated, that canned sardines balance something in the brain, to relieve depression.  I came in here, to post and just read above post.  That is great!

I agree, Sharon is really nice, and nicer in person! If one can eat sour cream, that version of sardines sounds delish!  I also agree about the wheat, when I eat it, it's a gradual downhill spiral for my moods. It took me years to realize this!  Praying for improvement for Ribbit soon! Also wanted to say how sweet it is when Isa adds "lein" to people's names!
