Just an update on what’s been going on behind the All Natural Savings blog (there’s a real person posting all these organic deals!) 😉
Since October, my autoimmune condition has been worsening, despite the treatment of several doctors and multiple natural health approaches. It came to a head this past week, when I started experiencing chest pains and numbing and pins and needles feeling in my arm. I also had gotten next to no sleep over a week’s period of time, as just as I start to fall asleep, I stop breathing. This happens multiple times as I start to fall asleep and gets to the point that my heart is racing and I almost blackout from lack of oxygen and I end up staying awake the entire night for fear that I won’t wake up if I fall asleep! I ended up going to the ER this past Friday and was admitted overnight so that they could monitor my heart throughout the night. I was discharged yesterday and will need to follow up with a sleep study, with a pulmonologist and rheumatologist (I’ve also been experiencing extreme joint pain over the past few months).
I came home from the hospital yesterday, to my sweet little 3 year old sick with the stomach flu, so we’re trying to care for him as well.
I’ve been through many trials, but this trial has shaken our family more than anything. It’s a scary thing to not have clear answers when so many things are awry with health, especially with two little ones to care for. My husband has been such an amazing support through it all. I know many of my readers also experience health troubles, as that’s what brings a lot of people to eating an organic diet (that’s why I swapped my diet years ago) and my heart goes out to you and any health struggles you are experiencing.
As a Christian, I pray that this trial isn’t wasted and I cling to the Lord’s promise that all things work together for the good of those that love Him and for His glory. He’s definitely used this scary time to draw us to His comfort and peace that only He can provide.
Anyway, I just wanted to keep you all posted in case you noticed a dip in posts over the past few days. It’s a rare thing for me not to post, the only days I’ve taken off since I started this organic coupons site 3 years ago have been on Christmas (I was even posting deals while I was in labor this summer!).
I so appreciate your loyalty to this site! I’m back to posting now as it’s something I love that doesn’t require much of me health wise, since my hospital stay, so be sure to check back frequently as there are some great organic deals this week!
