Re : Barbaric torture! And I've been signed up?!

<t>Hi! I am going through the exact same thing right now. I have had the most horrific episodes of bleeding/clotting and really prolonged periods (6 out of 8 weeks). I was completely anemic and fed up with it all. I was bleeding sooo heavily that I had a D&C earlier in the month where the lining...

Re : Celiac Disease

<r>Hi. Both of my children were tested recently for celiac disease at the recommendation of my daughter's eye doctor. This doctor feels celiac disease is a hidden epidemic and she suggests testing if a family has a strong history of auto-immune illnesses, i.e. (thyroid disease or diabetes), or infer...

Re : Preschool

Re : Sensory seeking? long post

<t>Hi. It definitely sounds like your daughter might have some sensory seeking behaviors. She may need extra "input" from her environment to regulate herself. OT might really help her. Try to find a OT who is well trained in sensory integration therapies. My son has had OT for approximately two year...

Re : Where I've been....

<t>Hi. I am sorry you are going through this right now. It is really painful to have another doctor confirm that your pregnancy was mismanaged. When I went to a perinatologist to have a consult before deciding to have baby #2, the same thing happened to me. My first child was born at 32 weeks, 3 day...

Re : The BIG blow

<t>Hi. Jai's teacher sounds horrible. It is fine to give feedback re: behavior etc but she should also have a plan to evaluate her etc. I would definitely ask for the school district to do a formal assessment of her for special needs. It sounds like she may need an IEP or might benefit from some pul...
