Re: Wanting to catch up!

Lisa, praying you are working through all that your fathers passing surely required. And on a much lighter, happier note, I am SO happy to hear that the man in your life is still there and that things are going so well! :appl: And how much fun not only to have a daughter getting married, but to be a...

Re: Severe Vitamin D deficiency, anyone been through this?

Has he been evaluated by a rheumatologist? I have Ankylosing spondylitis, and share many of the symptoms your son is experiencing. It's an autoimmune disease. I also have rheumatoid arthritis. I'm on a biologic, which works wonders for me. People with this type of autoimmune disease are also prone ...

Re: Severe Vitamin D deficiency, anyone been through this?

I just typed in all the symptoms on google and came up with "leaky gut". Is that a real diagnosis? I have a friend who talks about her leaky gut, and my DD has taken supplements that supposed make a candida die-off.They made her quite ill. What do any of the posters here know about leaky ...

TooPatient, thanks for sharing in my excitement. ;)) He had a lot checked on this last blood test, but I don't see B12. Looked it up and the article said most docs don't test for it. Some symptoms "could" be related, unfortunately many things overlap. I do want to think one of the neuro su...

Severe Vitamin D deficiency, anyone been through this?

One of my sons was diagnosed with a very severe deficiency a few weeks ago. His level was at 7 ng/ml. Optimal is 50-100. He managed to walk around like this for years, we're not sure just how many, no thanks to 2 MD's, a bone doctor and a naturopath. The one to whom we are forever indebted on sugges...

Thanks for the beautiful new pics ds. Gorgeous.

I love how it has a chameleonesque (yes that's a word, I looked it up!) quality. Yum.

Re: What do you NOT care about that most people DO care abou

Voting. After spending a few decades watching the political machine in action, it is my own opinion they are all mere puppets, danced around by the same puppet masters. They give us the "illusion" that we have, and can make choices, but in reality, there's only one agenda and it's being pu...

Re: I predict she's gonna be somebody. Must see!

Had another thought. For those that are concerned with the privacy issue, the little girl is "scolding" the parents. They are the ones on the "hot seat". If they don't have a problem with it, why would we? They are the only ones to be "embarrassed" about anything, and c...

She is a cutie and I agree with DS. How awful that her parents fight enough to make this little girl plead with them not to anymore. ;( Also, why was the mom filming this?

rr, glad you enjoyed it. She's obviously a sensitive little soul. Parents fight/disagree, that is life. What she needs to also see is apologies and contrition.
