If you don’t have the money in your account or budget to buy something, don’t charge it on credit!
Buy what you can afford and save up for larger purchases until you have the cash to afford them.

I’m saving up to have Carol’s ( my Honda Odyssey ) transmission rebuilt. Until then Hubby and I will share his car and my kiddos won’t get to do field trips because we can’t all fit in his car.

Miscellany Post Random

Thursday was such a long event exhausting day! I had my first visit with a particular specialist. I got an awesome vibe from this doctor. I’m a skeptical RN patient. I know and I’ve seen way too much. This doctor knew this about me and was not put off at ALL. He knew it was so not about him and that was apparent! He sold himself well and spoke to my heart. That being said, I have a very brief hospital visit coming soon.

So…. Carol the van, her check engine light came on.  She felt weak and lost her gusto. She would hesitate when i take my foot off the brake, instead of zooming forward with her normal liveliness. I called my normal Asiaworks and they are closed for vacation until next week. So I went to their other office,  Hondaworks on Scaleybark. Denny gave me some bad news. Carol’s transmission is giving out. This doesn’t surprise me but totally ticks me off, making a hard day really a test of my resolve and heart. I knew immediately it would be an expense I can not currently afford.  We’ve been using up our saving, since I got hit by that illegal alien drunk driver 2 years ago. We have good insurance but I still have a ton of out-of-pocket expenses.

(Excuse my “lack of compassion” for illegals and this entire D.A.C.A.  and D.A.P.A situation….. no one is paying my bills but me and I’m still suffering physically and financially two years later, for something NOT at my fault at all!!!)

My Odyssey year up to 2007 are notorious for terrible transmissions. It been one hellacious thing after another. I will only purchase another used vehicle if either Asiaworks checks it for me or Compact Cars on Independence boulevard near Matthews will check it out for me and say its a great buy!! AJ’s shop isn’t worth the mention.

I absolutely ADORE Harris Teeter home shop or shop online program!!! I’ve shopped Harris Teeter since I was a child. They’ve given me excellent customer service. I actually save money by not going inside the grocery store. I buy my list instead of looking at everything. I check my E-Vic weekly and make my order online for what I want. They even take coupons but it credits on your next purchase.

I’m thankful for praying friends!

I’m thankful for praying friends!

I was having one of those days. I think everyone has them. You know… things just seem overwhelming at that very moment. You know you are blessed, you are thankful but still overwhelmed. It’s great having friends in high places. Literally high places, praying for you. I felt it, seriously and now I feel such a calm and peaceful.

I need my van, so I may return to the gym early mornings to get my workout at the start of my day. I really need that energy and focus. I just began to do light jogging on the treadmill. I’m not quite ready for the road yet.

 

You said nothing:

It’s been a draining week of listening to mainstream media. They are STUCK on the President Trump Russia collusion theory. To the point of ignoring great news. I find myself online looking for news updates.

Liberal Left has been pretty sanctimonious lately. With name calling and put downs of anyone who supports our current President Donald Trump. I’ve even heard too many people, who say you know you can’t have a relationship with Christ if you support our President. According to them he is as bad as Hitler.  The hyperbole, rhetoric and name calling is tiresome and old. The indignation is almost laughable and here is why:

MTHFR Gene Mutations 

I decided to make a small post about MTHFR. I thought it was an isolated thing. I’m finding more and more people have signs and symptoms of this gene mutation. Many doctors don’t know about it and haven’t suggested genetic testing for it despite their patients having the markers for it or repeat miscarriages.
Make sure to read each of the following links very carefully.

MTHFR genetic defect – what it is and how it can affect you

(Note: This is a very important and information packed article about folic acid (synthetic folate) and synthetic B12 in realtion to the MTHFR gene mutation.)

Folic Acid and MTHFR – Could You Have a Genetic Mutation?

What is the MTHFR Genetic Defect and How Can it Affect You?

http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/natural-health/what-is-the-mthfr-genetic-defect/

Get checked for the MTHFR gene mutation in your family….
There is only one legitimate prenatal on the market and that’s garden of Life’s MyKind Organics prenatal. If there are others in still researching so I’m open to suggestions.
Folic acid is synthetic folate. If a person has an MTHFR gene mutation, the folic acid is even more harmful.
A lot of people use 23andme.com for testing, but I would suggest using a more reputable place. Besides reports of inaccurate tests, they have partnered with Pfizer. I would highly suggest using a local lab but if that’s not an option, 23andme should suffice.
Those with that gene mutation are most commonly treated with folate and methyl B-12 (which is real B-12).
For the record, besides foods rich in folate and B-12, Garden of Life’s RAW B complex is the greatest folate/methyl B-12 supplement on the market.

After getting your test results, I would suggest joining this group and viewing their files sections.

(https://www.facebook.com/groups/230824260340671/)

If you use 23andme, there are several other sites that you can run data through such as:

https://promethease.com
Or

https://www.knowyourgenetics.com

They will explain your test findings. They send you a link to download after you upload your test results from your computer.
There is a lot more to the methylation cycle and the MTHFR gene mutation.  There is a methylation chart at  https:/www.knowyourgenetics.com (Dr. Amy Yasko’s website)

https://www.knowyourgenetics.com/media/pdf/Yasko%20MPA%20Cycle.pdf
It may look confusing, but you will see it looks like wheels in a clock. All these wheels have to be working correctly in order to have the methylation, detox, and immune system working.
MTHFR is just part of it. 

You can see there, that there can be gene mutations with the COMT, MTRR, VDRQ, etcetera. 
This is why a holistic medical doctor that understands the methylation process is crucial. There are actually 4 types of vitamin b12 and which ones you need depends on which is your specific gene mutations. Dr. Amy Yasko’s website is one of the best out there.

You may have a MTHFR mutation ( its quite common with those who have had multiple miscarriages). You must STOP consuming gluten, dairy, and especially anything with folic acid. Take folinic acid or methyl folate supplements instead (they can be found at Vitamin Shoppe, vitacost.com, etc.) If you have a family history of blood clotting issues, strokes, etc. I would definitely ask for the MTHFR genetic testing.
