Convenient Aging with the Right Adult Diaper

Growing old comes with a wealth of experience that makes us wiser and more appreciative of the simple things in life. Unfortunately, we undergo certain changes that are influenced by the declining condition of our bodies and we are left to find solutions that will make these changes as tolerable as possible. Urinary incontinence and overactive bladder are two of the most common and distressing problems for elderly people according to the US NLM. Lack of control over bladder and bowel movements often cause problems for sufferers, their families and friends, and potentially the health professionals who take care of […]

Spider Veins Drive me Bonkers, Getting Older is So Overrated

I remember as a teenager, I had once asked my Gram about her legs, it seems spider veins and varicose veins run in the family. I dreaded the idea that one day I will be at an age that my body would respond with spider veins or varicose veins, but it happened. Shortly after giving birth to three children my veins had enough and to this day I suffer from both spider veins and varicose veins. It’s not pretty, but in the Summer time I get out in the sun with some oil to tan so that the darker skin […]

Having a Sensitive Child and Being a Sensitive Adult

Dinner was done Pajamas were on. Books were read. Boys were tucked in and Jenny the pug was placed on Aj’s bed. All was completed as normal. K-man was fast asleep. Then it happened… Aj started having his issues that he has every so often, since he has been off of medication these occurrences are few and far between, but they still happen. Aj is a unique child with a bit of bipolar, anxiety, autistic spectrum symptoms and more all mixed into this compassionate, loving 7 year old boy. I am not sure what is the cause of my son […]

First Day of School for the Older Two Kiddos

Today it started … the official first day of the 2013/2014 School Year. Last night we got our clothes ready for earlier than normal wake up and we set our alarm clocks. Then it happened … that “back to school anxiety” .. the not being able to sleep for my brain is so nervous and excited it cannot slow down. That was my two oldest last night. Aj lay wide awake attempting to sleep but just couldn’t. He was a good sport, he never kept me awake, simply lay down with eyes open while he pet our pug until he […]

Just When I’m At That Point

All day long my sons are pretty well maintained, easy going, happy and smiling. I have proof of that on my Vine video account but come about 3pm they are done. Usually 3pm is the time my youngest starts acting wild and crazy, wrestling too roughly with his brother, off the walls hyper and cannot seem to focus. It just so happens that about 3pm is also about the time of day when I am utterly exhausted, ready to sleep. My eyes fight to stay open and my body is ready to shut down but I still have quite a […]

The 7 Year old Boy Now and Other Things

Sweet Aj is now 7 years old. He has grown so big in the past 7 years. About two weeks ago or three, he had a med change from risperidone to abilify. Due to many reasons, but as usual with a medication change it takes time to get the dosage right and it takes time to see if this is even the right medication. Finally Aj is on track and while he scowled at anyone who dare make a “big deal” out of him turning 7 today, he was a happy boy who had a day with Dad and came […]

Getting in all of the End of Summer Sleep Overs

My daughter is blessed in that everyone loves her and wants to sleep over or have her sleep over. That means once the end of Summer break comes she starts scrambling to get in all of her last minute sleep over plans. It’s sad for me that she sleeps at people’s houses, because she is already gone so much with her Dad so it seems I barely see her and during the school year I see her even less. I am happy that she loves life so fully though, so I guess I will just continue to cherish the time […]

Taking one Step at a Time

My brain cannot function if it is held up with multiple worries and concerns. I have to focus on one piece of the pie at a time. Meaning, if life tosses me multiple things that I have to resolve, I cannot just sit back and think about this one and that one then the next one all at once. The reason is that I have three kids, two of which are extremely active boys, on top of everything that goes on in the adult world living as a responsible adult. My brain works best when I take one piece of […]
