Christians and Alternative Medicine

I don't have much experience with alternative medicine.  Long before I was saved I used to shop in those "New Age" shops.  I bought crystals, (that were supposed to heal) Incense, herbs and books.  I even once bought a "dream pillow"  you were supposed to keep it under your pillow when you slept.  I had terrible nightmares until I tossed it.

I liked to get books that would "decipher your dreams."  I read my horoscope (just for fun) and played with a ouija board. I even went to a psychic a few times.  I was not a Christian but many of these things frightened me at the time.  I was dealing with the enemy and didn't even realize it.

I am currently reading a book by someone who has dealt with alternative medicine.  It is eye opening.  Check it out.  I know these folks personally and they are fine Christian people.

99 cent Pepsi 12 packs!

I just got an email from CVS that tomorrow June 15th, when you scan your Extra Care Card at the Coupon Center you will get a coupon making a 12 pack of Pepsi or Diet Pepsi 99 cents! 

This is Wednesday June 15th only.  I am sure if you are in a state with deposits, that they will apply as well.

I'm not a Pepsi fan (Coke/Diet Coke all the way) but hubby will drink it!  And for 99 cents!  What a bargain!

I've felt pretty icky since we came back from NY.  I got my thyroid medicine on May 22nd, so I "felt" like I was getting better.

June 11th at about 2AM, my heart started racing.  I waited for it to subside.  By 2:30 Saturday afternoon it was still racing, I knew I needed to seek medical attention.  I didn't "think" I was having a heart attack, but who ever does?

My blood pressure was 114/87 which wasn't terrible, my heart rate was 88 that's good too.  BUT, my heart was racing, and there needs to be a reason, right?  They did an EKG, also with normal results.  The doctor asked, "Are you depressed?  Are you thinking of killing yourself or someone else?"  UH, "No!"

The did some blood work and a chest x-ray.  Well, turns out I have pneumonia, and dangerously low hemoglobin.  So, I got an antibiotic and am being referred to a hematologist.

I have not had the $$ or strength to get many bargains lately, but I DID get these from Amazon (FREE from Swagbucks) SIGN UP HERE 

I love them, because they don't stain.  Even with red sauce!

Lydia also needed diapers, and CVS had a box for 19.99 (I had $5 Extra Care Bucks going in, and got $4 with the purchase)

The coupon I am most excited about is one that was offered on Facebook from Claussen.  $2 off a jar!  WOO HOO!  I love my pickles!

LAAAAZY Saturday

Here it is 5:25 and none of us are showered or dressed.  We all slept in.  Woke up at 9 then went back to sleep.  I got up around noon, then Lydia, then Fred. 

Trying to figure out what (if anything) we're going to do today...
