Health battles

I am going through some health issues right now. I had a flu like virus for about a week and a half, plus I am pretty sure that I have sleep apnea(stop breathing during sleep, and therefore wake up tired). So I am sleepy and tired all the time. Not to mention the constant headache, it's dull, but always there.I am certain it is weight related. I am trying to consume more fruits and veggies...The house is falling apart even though we are working on it.

But homeschooling goes on.I was just thinking today that I don't think we'd have had school today if I was doing more traditional school.

A few weeks ago, the summary exercises brought on raised voices and tears, and now those 2 students are just sailing through them!! JD, who is dyslexic~ we have found a rhythym for him. One second grade LA lesson and then onto the third grade LA lessons. His mind is ahead of his reading, so I am treating him accordingly. He can do the older lessons if I read them to him, so I do.

It is good to find something that works. I do hope one day to be able to do Sonlight for history, which is basically just reading aloud, but for right now, it is too much for me. I am going to build this foundation a bit more before I add anything else.

I am so glad I have some dr. appts in place to deal w/ all my issues!! Hope is in sight!! ;)

I have had those kinds of sick feelings but I know that mine are related to my thyroid. I just wanted to mention that, it could be related to your thyroid. I will keep you in my prayers.
