Hi everyone!  I apologize for not being around very much.  I had my third child, a girl, on May 3rd and she's been keeping me pretty busy!  Not to mention the 4 and 7 year old boys.  I'm trying to check in once or twice a week.  Thanks to those who have been helping out!

One last note, I forgot to add in how you calculate the percentiles, you add 22.5 to each number, then divide by 45, multiply by 100 and divide by a number created thusly: You calculate the amount of charts in the 28-day timeframe, multiply it by 30 and then divide by 2. That should give you the answers you require. If the heart-rate and weight are below 45%, you MIGHT want to consider the possibility of a miscarriage. However, it's best to wait the required 28 days since conception during the first gestational month to research this chance

Yes Andy got the job, it's in private security and it pays more then he makes now (he's currently with the RCMP). We're looking forward to the move. Andy & the dogs were checking out apartments over there for him to stay in before our house is sold today

I'm doing all right although I'm thinking I might need a new psyche med. My mania has been returning and even though I still feel tired at night, I find I'm having trouble falling asleep again.

I'm trying to lose weight but I find it's harder then I thought it would be. It's so hard for me to resist sweets and fatty foods because I'm used to them, so going without that little extra is rough on me.

My parents want to put me in a group home, but from what I've heard, many of my rights would be taken away. I might end up with very little computer time, I'd have to be up and in bed at a certain time, I'd need to participate in "social" activities every day and there could also be unnecessary diet modifications made too.

I've heard of something called "supportive" housing which is similar to a group home, but I'd have more individual freedom while living there. I'd appreciate if there was some monitoring but not too much. Before when I was completely alone, I'd binge on junk food and stay up all hours of the night, which generally wasn't good for me. I was in such a bad state that I ended up being hospitalized for a few months after I'd moved back in with my parents.

The obesity that comes from my drugs is a problem though. Some of them raise blood sugar levels, which puts me at risk for diabetes. The main reason why I want to trim down is so that I can pass my yearly glucose tolerance test. The pills, especially the Seroquel, make me more hungry & cause me to have intense cravings if I don't eat what I'm used to for a snack.

My GP's giving me the first Pap smear I've received in the past 7 years nearly. I'll admit, I think he's done a good job with me and there's a closeness that comes with the critical monitoring he's done but it's only artificial. I realize that he's just performing the tasks he feels are necessary & I force myself to push those emotions aside and simply deal with the situation as it is.

I also review astrology for Neopian "gestations" if anyone's interested, you check out the Sun for the heart-rate, the Moon for preterm labor risks and Jupiter for fetal weight. There's also Mars for activity & stress levels.

With all of the planets except the Moon, positive aspects are viewed as a plus (semi-sextile +2.5, sextile,+5. trine +7.5) negative aspects as a minus (quincunx -2.5, square -5, opposition -7.5). You invert these aspects for the Moon to assess the miscarriage/preterm labor risk.

You calculate them based on the number of charts cast in a 28-day timeframe, when you've got the numbers you write them down & add or subtract based on the last date outside of this frame and the one of the most recent chart. So in case anyone's curious about this knowledge for either a real or Neopian infant you can always check it out, however, get a doctor's opinion first as the stars don't hold the key to everything.

You can also tell whether you're having a boy or girl based on the planets in masculine (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius) or feminine (Taurus. Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces) signs.

Did he get the job? Would you like to move?

I tried that. By the way, it's a male doctor. He didn't give me an actual prescription, just a list of my usual meds with the recommendatiion for one listed at the top. The nurses said to stick with what the pharmacist told me to do.

As far as my disability goes, I'm not sure what to do about the psychological problems, they got better after I adjusted to the supplement. I may be looking at moving soon. My stepfather's got a major job offer in Kamloops and he's pretty likely to receive it, he has some references that are giving him good reviews.

I'm still sleeping a lot and having the junk food cravings, However, I forced myself to stay awake tonight because I knew I had stuff to do, Well I'm off, I'll update everyone later on

Maybe you could call your GP and tell her what happened. She may not want you on a once a day vitamin. Seems like it would give you one big dose rather than 2 small doses. That may help!

My GP prescribed me a multivitamin and he wants to do a gynecological examination at my next appointment. However, I think the pharmacist might've given me one with too much Vitamin A.

I'm suffering from a little toxicity as it made my disability worse. What I discovered was that the increased Vitamin A was upping my testosterone levels, now I'll probably have to find an herbal remedy to lower it and calm me down a little to counteract its effects..

I think it was a mix-up made between the pharmacist & the GP. The doctor wanted me on a low dose multivitamin twice a day and the pharmacist chose out one at a slightly higher dosage and told me to take it only once

My Mom disagrees with me and the staff at my drug store call it the "progression of the disability", however ever since I've been on the multivitamin I've felt worse. Does anyone know of any herbs to lower increased androgen levels induced by drugs or supplements? I'm not looking for anything major just a remedy to help keep me calm while I'm on the multivitamin.
