I don't post here very much - this is more about my kids than me and I apparently am not a very good Mommy Blogger.
But let me say this: People piss me off sometimes. I am having problems with H2 and his asthma, so I go on a mommy advice site I belong to, and I get 3 people trying to sell me cleaners, 2 trying to sell me vitamins and 1 who tells me I need to keep my kid away from smoky parties & not allow him to go outside.
Seriously?!?!?! Do people really think that I often take my asthmatic 6 year old to smoky clubs and then can't figure out why he's having trouble breathing. That, I also shove his face in every pollen filled flower I see in the spring and during the summer, I shove his nose in the freshly mowed lawn. Oh or maybe that when I'm doing my hair and spraying hairspray I call him so he can get some in his face? Also, that one mother who suggested I teach my kid about his meds and how to use his equipment for when I leave him alone...I hope you don't leave your 6 year old alone. Are you sure you are qualified to even be on this site?
Let me say this:
1. I use organic, non-toxic and biodegradable cleaner.
2. On advice of my doctor I do not use a humidifier as my Pediatrician, Pulmanologist & ENT told me they are a breeding ground for bacteria - no matter how much chemicals you stick in them. I don't use chemicals, they are not good for his lungs.
3. No, I'm not going to shove crap from the health food store that is untried or that some Earth-Momma says is the cure to end all cures.
4. I am not taking my 6 year old to a chiropractor - CHIROPRACTORS ARE NOT ASTHMA DOCTORS. If you use a Chiropractor good for you - my board certified doctors on this case DO NOT RECOMMEND IT. I would go to an Acupuncturist way before I'd hit a Chiropractor
I asked for advice because I have hit a wall, not because I am a mother who doesn't know what is good or bad for her child. If you have a suggestion - I'd love to hear it, but if you want to hock your products to me, keep your mouth shut. I also don't want to hear your political ideas, your thoughts on religion and who has the right to and not to marry.
Thanks for listening - I feel tons better now.
