My friend and I were talking yesterday about the "blogging world" and how most people only post happy blogs and make positive comments on someone's page, you don't say what your really thinking. Well this is a blog about how life can be hard.
Between the difficulty of my kid's diet and having to find a good home for our beloved cat Dirt McGirt and trying to find the money to take my kids to the doctors I want I'm ready to have a melt down.
We have to get rid of our cat because Grayson's eczema isn't responding to the diet like I thought it would and our doctor thinks it might be the cat dander. It's totally breaking my heart and I'm not really sure how to properly do it, do I put an ad online or do I check in my ward first? If money was no object I would just put him in a boarding facility for a few months just in case he wasn't causing it and we want him back. But money is always a factor.
Another hard part of my kid's diet is that people think I'm crazy. Most people who have eczema just put a steroid cream on it and eat whatever they want. The problem with that is the creams don't prevent it from coming back, they just treat the symptoms not the cause. Some people think it's not fair that my kids can't eat candy and cookies but I think it's not fair to feed them something that hurts their body. I'm not sorry that I believe most ailments can be "cured" by eating the right foods. It does take discipline but they should just be thankful that the responsibility falls on me and not them. What I really want is for people to say "you're their mother and I'm sure your doing what's right for them".
O.K., rant over and actually I feel better :)
