Letting go of the aggravations.

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.
