100% All Organic Detox By @YoungLeaf #YoungLeafTeas @Jgreenhood

Always Check with your doctor if you’re on any medications prior to using a detox. Although this has organic natural herbs & tastes great, some herbs do have reactions with prescription medications.

Detox tea helps to naturally flush out toxins that build up over time in your body. Although I don’t know if any of these products would have affected the Chemo treatments my mother had I think this would have helped with a lot of her other issues.

Life love and everything in between

My video is short and to the point. Since I live in Florida and it’s still been hot I’ve not been drinking any tea. Although this tea is also great cold! I found it had a slight sweetness so found no need to add sweetener.

So What are the ingredients and how are they good for you?

Happy New Year!

Past couple of years has been hard, but with everything crashing this year seems to have been the hardest yet. I mean it when I say it this every year, “May the new year be better than the last.”.

Sadly, this time, I’m going to try a new mantra. I know 2016 is going to be hard, but in some ways, it will be better. I’ve been working hard on making me & my life better.

Oh and that stupid probate gets resolved!

Happy New Year!

My video is short and to the point the rest of this post is more detailed.

So I recently came across the opportunity to review some items. Being kind of broke, not having much time for cooking or whether you’re a hardcore into working out, you should try this product. Not only is it packed with 25g of protein per serving but  only 1g sugar and is Kosher too! So if you’re looking for a this to supplement your meal or even as a snack this is a great tasting choice.

Flight Of The Red Balloon A Message To The Future

Tags

, , , , ,

(Don’t have time to read this article right now? Jump to the bottom and add to Pocket an Iphone/Android app that reads articles to you. Click here to jump to the bottom.)

Yeah, it’s just another sentimental Sunday!

A few weeks ago I was at the flying field watching my husband and some others flying model airplanes at IRKS. Along the light, breeze floated in a red balloon with a note attached. Unfortunately, it floated away and I was unable to see the note.

As I wallow through this mess of my life, I had wished my parents had left a message behind that would make me stop doubting how they felt about me or my sisters. It’s hard to believe they cared or loved us once if at all. Sadly, the feeling had been further compounded by the actions of other family members. Believe it or not we’be been told our parents hated us by a few. Sadly with their compounded help, all that’s left of my parents is a mess.

It’s as if my mom’s sisters erased her & my father. Family heirlooms were taken & given away. Leaving nothing for the grandchildren. What few photos I had in my possession are all that’s left. Old photos of  family that’s passed appear to be gone.

When I was caring for my mom we were practically inseparable. I’d never be gone more than a day or two. If she was ill I’d bring her home with me. I’m glad I was finally able to have the chance to take her to a convention & wished we had had a chance to do it again.

Although I don’t have children, I don’t wish my nephews & nieces to suffer this fate from me. So I’ve started to record messages for them to watch in the future after I’m gone.  Something I hope everyone to do at least once for their loved ones they leave behind.

The Way It Was And How It Could Have Been: Entering Hell

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

(Don’t have time to read this article right now? Jump to the bottom and add to Pocket an Iphone/Android app that reads articles to you. Click here to jump to the bottom.)

“Sometimes life just randomly answers the questions you’ve been searching for, even if it’s too late to enact on them. ” – Jessica Bixby

Many women prefer to rant, rave & moan about their problems, but not this girl! Not knowing, eat at me. Don’t get me wrong caring for 2 sick parents was Hell. If I had to do  it again a small part of me says, “run away!”, but I have morals and would stay & do it. I only hope that my pain can be used as a lesson to help others avoid the same outcome.

So let’s start from the beginning, April 2012 my life changed forever in the blink of an eye. There were warning signs, we just didn’t know, what we didn’t know. My mother had been telling the Dr. for months she’d been having a hard time swallowing, dysphagia. Being the stoic woman and the caregiver for my father. None of us knew what it meant. Since it seem to be a minor annoyance to her none of us thought anything of it. Dysphagia, is part of the normal aging process and alone doesn’t really raise any red flags. After all alone it could be any of a dozen ailments.

Although Fatigue is a sign of somethings wrong, she was diabetic and well was always tired.  So again no flags raised. After all being Diabetic and caring for a 70 yr old man who is arthritic & just had both knees replaced is stressful and tiring so fatigue was just an expected thing with her.

So needless to say, it was horrifying to us all when 2 days before they were to go on a cruise my mom was in horrible pain. My father was unable to even unlock the door for emergency people to come in. She barely was able to get to the door to unlock it, the pain was so unbearable.

Just an example of lymphoma of the stomach.

It wouldn’t be till. after a 5 hour emergency surgery that we would find out they had to remove a portion of her stomach. It appeared that she was under a lot of stress and had stomach ulcers. These ulcers appear to have become cancerous and burst through the stomach wall. The fear of almost losing her hit us all hard, but I think the toll of it weighed harder on my father. When you look on Web MD, for Stomach Cancer Symptoms, she never expressed having any of the other symptoms.

The sad truth of the matter is my mom and I share this one thing in common, people worrying about us, makes us uncomfortable. So like her, if I was in pain, I’d keep it to myself and suffer in silence. Out of fear of finances, we both wouldn’t seek medical attention most-likely till it was too late. I do want to note that at the time both my parents had health insurance and plenty of money. The more someone frets & worried about her the more tight lip she would become. On this, I can’t speak for my mom, but when I see someone worrying about me, it’s the most gut wrenching feeling in the world. I rather suffer in silence than add to their fears.

I realize it for what it is, but this was the dumbest thing my mom could have done. Please here me out on this, if you are this type of a person. DO NOT hide being sick, ill, in pain or emotional state from your loved ones EVER! I know it’s hard to talk about, but you are actually going to cause them more pain. They are here for you and will want

Stress-related illness, often referred to as Psychosomatic Disorders, begins with emotional stress or a damaging thought pattern.

to help! Not talking about how your feeling can be deadly and in her case it was a few years drawn out painful mess. I noticed she was tired, so I worked more & harder in the shop for next to nothing. (& yeah, I’d do it again, but maybe get it in writing and wages) Let this be a lesson, I know it’s hard, but you have to talk regularly with doctors, friends and family on how you feel. Maybe we would have taken action earlier and the emergency surgery wouldn’t have had to occur.

Since then I’ve been on a constant search for answers. I know it can’t change the past, but I hope it can change someone else’s future.  Below are some links to recommended reading. Please feel free to comment, like & share this post.

Sentimental Sunday: Life With My Dad (Robert Greenhood)

( #SentimentalSunday)

(Don’t have time to read this article right now? Jump to the bottom and add to Pocket an Iphone/Android app that reads articles to you. Click here to jump to the bottom.)

On April 16, 2012 my life changed forever. Bea, my mother, ended up in the hospital. None of us knew how much our father depended on her and the stress of that lead to being in a 5 hour emergency surgery. Although, her sisters cruelly blamed him for this, he was not alone in the fault of it, but that’s not what this blog post is about. My dad, was not an easy person to get along with and it’s always easy to harp & focus on the horrible past and allow it to continue to torture yourself, but that’s not what this post is about either. Although, yes we are still seeking help in cleaning up this financial mess created by the loss of both parents in 1 year, this post is for the grandkids who will grow up never knowing him.

It’s true that when we are young we don’t always appreciate these little moments, but as I stood behind my husband watching a clip of CBS’ Sunday Morning and I recall some of the best Sunday mornings with my dad were spent sitting in the living room, sipping his coffee with a bagel with cream cheese.

http://www.cbsnews.com/common/video/cbsnews_video.swf

As we got older this happen a lot less & less. My parents would work long hours & my sisters and I, had other things to do.  When my nephew, Daniel was born my dad was so excited. For one, he was now not the only guy in a family of 3 daughters and all the pets were female too! At this point in life, I lived in South Carolina, but everyone else lived here in Florida. I’d come down on holidays. Sarai would drop Dan off with my parents and my dad would put on Sunday Morning and watch it with my nephew. It was kind of nice to see. Although, Dan was not able to walk he’d sit there snuggled up with his grandfather watching. 10 years later when Dan’s sister, Elizabeth was born the tradition continued.

He’d play every morning for her, a recording of, (I think), Lord of the Dance with Irish

Irish dancers

dancers dancing to Simple Gifts.  I grew up listening to so many versions of this song. It will always hold a special meaning to me. None more precious than watching him sit there playing that song  on the TV for her & singing it to her. By no means was our father an awesome singer, but Lizzy’s eyes would  get so big and twinkle as she’d sit there watching & listening.

Right now, all that’s left for their 5 grandchildren is pain & trashed memories. In some families, a loss brings family together but sadly in ours it’s torn us apart. Instead of preserving the memory of our parents they worked hard at erasing it. Trashed their home & took what they wanted before my mom’s body was even cold. Sadly this behavior has become more & more common in today’s society. If you can help please do, even if this means just liking & sharing this page.

Thank you!

The Ovarian Lottery: Here Come the vultures

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

“Here come the vultures. Here come the vultures screaming at us…” – Delain

‘I’m angry like I’m 18 again and walls are closing in, but the bastards & the vultures all want pieces of what’s left of what we built….” The wonder Years

 

(Don’t have time to read this article right now? Jump to the bottom and add to Pocket an Iphone/Android app that reads articles to you. Click here to jump to the bottom.)

Promises were made but how often I forgot how few promises were ever kept by my family. I sadly can’t recall any promises made by my family that have been kept. So I shouldn’t have been surprised that a family, I naively thought was loving and caring turned out to be a pack of vultures. My father was only gone a few months and the vultures swoop in like a pack of hungry vultures plucking out my mom’s eyes before she’s even gone. I guess all families hope for that rich uncle to die and leave them a fortune and all families have those greedy individuals wait for their chance to get their slice of the pie.

By all means, my parents were not perfect, but they were mine and I loved them despite their faults. Both, Bob & Bea, worked hard their whole lives. They owned several businesses Old South Marketing, Contour Marketing, Affordable Coin Shop, J & S Stamps and a few others. I’d love to say all that hard work paid off and they became rich and lived happily ever after, but if that was the case then this blog post would be done. Don’t get me wrong they had their ups and downs and always made it through. In 2007, Bob came into some money due to a family decision to sell a piece of property that had been in the family for several generations.

Luckily for them they didn’t go all crazy. Sure they paid off their mortgages and for once in their lives bought brand new cars. They were even smart and invested some of it. The one thing they didn’t do was work on being healthier. Bea had a Heart attack and bypasses done when she was in her 50’s. She also was a diabetic. Bob had suffered from several forms of Arthritis before I was even born. The pills he took on a daily basis was like a dozen pills 3 times a day. Both suffered from obesity. This horrible lifestyle lead to many ailments and ultimately lead to them both being hospitalized in 2012.

With one daughter living in another time zone, another with a toddler the majority of their care fell to me. Sadly there isn’t much out there to help you when you’re flying by the seat of you pants. They made no plans, no details on what to do how to take care of things. You do what you can. I didn’t ask my family to help as they all lived over 1200 miles away. With one aunt on her death bed, 2 sick uncles and many other family members severely sick I didn’t dare ask.

It was hard trying my best to take care of things and keep on top of it all despite the negative comments I was getting from my mom’s siblings. By 2013, I was on the brink of breaking down. This is when the vultures strike. This is when it goes to hell. It starts with something small and grows from there. Before you know it, they’ve left your ailing father alone & unattended. Although the details are still unclear, my father became injured and ended up getting an infection that landed him in the hospital. According to my mother, the last she saw of him was in September before she left for Colorado to see her sister.  Denied seeing her husband before he passed, Bob suffered the cruelest fate of all. He died alone with no one who loved him there by his side. Denied seeing his wife before he died, denied closure with his daughters and denied seeing his 2 grandchildren that lived in the same state, once last time.
