SWAMI tweaked Explorer Super Taster from Illinois

Thank you all for sharing.  Mental illness on my maternal side was also a taboo subject to discuss.  I’d gleam bits and pieces of the picture from descriptions of the actions of relatives.  The internet is an amazing thing where you not only can find out information to help you, you can find other people suffering the same or similar – you are not alone.

When I was born they said my mother hemorrhaged, so her aunt took care of me.  Then that aunt broke her arm.  The story goes that my mother was in the waiting room of the doctor’s office when she blurted out “I don’t know how I can take care of this baby.  I can’t do it.”  A woman, Eileen, said “I’ll take care of her.”  Eileen had a hysterectomy when she was 21 yrs old and couldn’t have any children.  Her husband worked at the company where my aunt (Mom’s sister) was a registered nurse.  So at 6 weeks old I went to live with Eileen & Casey.  My Mom checked into a mental institute.  My Dad would come to their house to visit me.  When I was 1 yr old my Dad built his new home in Lombard.  My Mom cried to be away from Chicago.  I went to my parent’s house every weekend to get my mother used to taking care of me.  When I was 2 yrs old, I went to live with my parents during the week but with Eileen & Casey on the weekends.  My mom was Catholic but my dad was not so he used condoms.  I am an only child.

Keep talking to us Ribbit.  It is therapeutic to get it out.  Even if I can’t offer any practical help, I’m hear to listen.

ya couldn't do it this morning. it's odd the way somethings are hushed up. i know people who were born with varios defects and "hidden" away by the family from the rest of the community untill they were quite old. i know my family has a tendancy to lose there minds when they get older "watering the plastic flowers" type thing. i heard about a great aunt or cousen that would only talk to trees to the point were her phy put speakers in one so she would "talk to him". i emagen she is dead by now. the things my 98 yr old great grandmother came up with a few months before her death were really weird, to much soap opera i suspect.


nothing to do? who has that!?

In case some of you haven't seen the update, I got shot by a B-12 and I'm feeling pretty good!

again I am wondering if you could have some issues on the left side hip bonbe high where your large intestines do not absorb B Vit..   give it a loving massage right to left circles..

glad to hear that it made you feel better.. did you take your pressure?

At the dr Friday it was actually above what's normal for me, but I'd been walking around holding children, so that's not surprising.

The left hipbone, just inside, is where I had the postpartum neuropathy and where I continue to have pain on a bad day when the pelvic organ prolapse is giving me a hard time.  But the prolapse and neuropathy are somewhat new (8 months).

Maybe I was already weak there and that's why this whole thing happened anyway.

The left hipbone, just inside, is where I had the postpartum neuropathy and where I continue to have pain on a bad day when the pelvic organ prolapse is giving me a hard time.  But the prolapse and neuropathy are somewhat new (8 months).   DR D has protocols for the prolaps I think.. look into it.. but the space you're referring to is the place where we absorb B vitamins.. in a space of 2 inches I was told..  

Maybe I was already weak there and that's why this whole thing happened anyway. something triggered it as you where ok before.. by chance did you get your period the same time?  

DID you do the temp thing.. under the arm right as you wake up before moving around// .. shake down the night before  it would tell if your thyroid is ok.. worth doing..

The carpet might be the right thing to remove.. but you should go on vacation and let others do the job without you in the dust..  that stuff can settle into the lungs real deep.. not good..

good luck again..

It's always low.  90/60 is about right for me, even throughout pregnancy (it's supposed to go up some then, but mine doesn't much until the very end).

I haven't had a period in so long it's not funny.

T3-uptake is low.  Temperature is always low even though I always feel hot.

thats hormones,(and a sign of imballance) i really would have them checked. actully the bp is not so bad, a little on the low side but not too bad. course if you do have an undetected heart defect then it would be a bit low. have you seen that cartioligest yet? have you goten any results from tests?

Ribbit, you're still nursing, correct?  That most likely is the reason for lack of menstruation.  I don't think that there's anything wrong as far as hormonal imbalance.

It's 100% normal to "not menstruate" while nursing an infant, or even while nursing a toddler. The normal range for the first post-partum menstrual period while nursing is anywhere from 3 months to 2 years after birth, and some women are even outside that range.

I have friends with large families, kids spaced 2-3 years apart, using no other birth control besides breastfeeding. Typically, she'll get her period back when the baby is 18-24 months old, have a few cycles, then get pregnant again.

So, for a mom of an 8 month old to "not have had a period in so long it isn't funny" just sounds normal to me. She's been lactating for 8 months, and pregnant for about 9 months before that. That comes to about a year and a half of no periods.

So glad to hear you are feeling better Ribbit.  Imagine something so simple, B-12, could make a world of difference.  A regular MD would have you on a boatload of prescription medicines by now.

The concern would be the low thyroid.. and strengthening that might be a good thing.. it's hormonal not just for fem. hormones.. but all of them..

I am not certain but I would for my self use the iodine to strengthen my thyroid.. its on easy fix and possible less invasive then even B12.. as for the absorption issue in the b12 area..left under the bend.. well that explains a few things for me..

then the carpet thingy and you could have had on episode you might never have again.. as for the heart prolaps .. DrD would have a fix for that..

In the end maybe the less you worry any more the better.. if you are feeling fine for now..

all the best..

No, now I'm back exactly where I was before.  The B12 wore off.  

Thanks for doing the math for me, Ruth.  Yeah, October 1 1/2 years ago sounds about right.  That's not messed up, it's just normal for me.  Most lactating women (who nurse as much as I do) don't start back for a long, long time.  Thank you for understanding.

I usually start back up around 9 months.  However, do to so much stress after Esther was admitted to the hospital I started at 4 months after her birth.  I was so disappointed.

Do you have some Methyl B12 from NAP?  I know that some may be wasted if you aren't absorbing it properly, but even getting a little will be better than none!  Hope you feel better, soon.

Leanne, we had a honeymoon baby thanks to things getting off schedule because of wedding planning stress.

Joe, I have been taking Dr. D's Methyl B Plus.  I can't tell much difference.

How long ago did you have the B-12 shot? Was it one week ago or two? However long ago it was, that's probably how far apart you need the shots right now.

Are sea veggies OK for you? I know they're a diamond on my SWAMI but I'm a completely different BT and GT from you. If you can have them, they're a great source of iodine plus lots of other trace minerals that your body may be lacking right now.

NO IF YOU ARE not geting enough B's into your system then the left side of your intestines is not functioning prperly.. the only way you can get enough B 12 is by injection.. its the right thing to do that for a few times.. until you recover..
