I’ve talked in the past about how we have two children with mental health issues. My oldest has ADHD and our youngest has ODD. With those, we constantly have a lot of anger and stress in the home. We deal with it the best that we can, though it’s not always easy. For a while, I thought that I was the cause of my ids ADHD & ODD. After lots of therapy and talking with those who have studied ADHD & ODD for years, I know it’s nothing I’ve done in my parenting. Anger and stress in children aren’t easy to work with, however, it’s not impossible either! However, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t having problems with stress more or less than any other child.
Mental illnesses are difficult to diagnose because there aren’t any reliable biological markers—like blood tests, scans, or x-rays—to verify that something is medically wrong. But the symptoms are real, like mood swings, impulsivity, increased irritability, and irrational thoughts. Because mental illnesses affect people’s thinking and behavior, a diagnosis wreaks havoc on interpersonal relationships. When Steve first got sick, well-established family routines changed, and we lived for years in a fog of uncertainty as doctors worked to find a combination of medications to stabilize his mind.
Of course, no one says that you can’t invest in something different but also as important, such as savings plans, unit-linked insurance plans, and growth plans with a significant capital appreciation over a period of time. Besides that, you can also opt for an investment plan targeted at higher education expenses, with the help of financial advisors, of course. Professional help of this kind is highly recommended for planning portfolio so that you can be 100% sure that your child will have a bright future thanks to your smart moves and decisions you were making from their early age.
My husband and I lately have been trying to expand on our range of recipes. I’ve been compiling recipes for years and years that “sounded delicious” but just didn’t fit into our lifestyle at the time. I’m sure some of you can relate. One of my favorites is the Orange Wild Rice recipe below! Until about a year ago, we were constantly on the go! Between kids doing after school stuff, to the oldest starting his first job and then all of the family commitments, it’s been crazy! This summer was crazy busy because we were house hunting, I had my full hysterectomy surgery, then we moved into our home less than 2 weeks after my surgery.
