Your first responsibility is to you.
I know that may sound harsh, but if you are a medical mess, how can you possibly help anyone else?
I know it is hard to put yourself first and not your family, but honey all this stress is not helping you. You are not responsible for the things that are wrong with your family. ( I know, I have some family issues and it took many years to realize that they were not my fault.)
I can’t help but to think a second opinion from a more nutritionally or internal based doctor might be helpful, although with the moving/new living situation that may not be possible.
I know I have certainly argued with some neurologists about my son’s health, as not every “specialist” see things in the same way.
I agree with Skye about the shakes too. Maybe the meds are really affecting your body’s ability to absorb what you do eat and with the stress you are probably not making the best nutritional choices. I used to live in SC and am not sure what area you are located, but perhaps it is time for a trip to a good health food store. Some of the larger cities have some good ones along with a little bit more progressive thinking.
If you can, spend some time browsing the isles for a good all-round shake/supplement to give you the goodies your body is missing. I mean many of us make sure our horses get all the best nutrition they can down to the micro and macro minerals, but tend to forget about ourselves.
I’m not a vegan or anything, but some new studies have come out about some of the medical issues my son has, and how they are discovering the deep cellular level and the connection of nutrition, or lack of.
This has led me to actually start making my own green powders out of my organic spinach and veggies to make sure the nutritional boosts he needs (more so than other kids) is there for him.
Having gone on the journey that I have with my son and seeing first hand the affect of nutrition, it really can make a difference. Most modern foods are so deficient of the things our bodies need anymore it is like walking a food minefield when you have health issues.
Sorry, I didn’t mean to ramble….
More hugs… I really wish I could do something to help and I’m sorry you can’t spend time with your horses. If you are the type that outdoor hikes or time spent in nature helps to restore your soul, I can tell you about some nice places to visit and go walking, depending on with part of SC you are in.
