    Why does Mommy hurt? An interview with author Elizabeth Christy on chronic pain

    in Health

    Elizabeth M. Christy lives in Northern Virginia with her husband James, son Jimmy (5), and daughter Lucy (newborn). She is the best-selling author of the children’s book "Why Does Mommy Hurt? Helping Children Cope with having a Caregiver with Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, or Autoimmune Disease," and blogs on parentswithpain.com and potomacfallsmama.blogspot.ca.  Additionally, she works as a Systems Integrator for TASC. In addition to basic survival, Elizabeth enjoys writing, sewing (especially in straight lines!), and reading good memoirs.


    “Why Does Mommy Hurt?” is a great resource to talk to children about chronic pain and illness. On this episode, we'll discuss the guilt and shame many parents suffering from chronic pain feel about their parenting. The fact is that parents with chronic pain or illness can be just as awesome as “normal” parents when it comes to raising kids, and if you love your kids, that’s all that matters.  We may not be able to walk a mile to the playground, cook a 7-course organic meal from scratch, or volunteer on a field trip to the amusement park, but that’s not what really matters. If you love your kids, you will find your own way, and your kids will know it. Also, many parents in this situation feel very alone, especially when first diagnosed. There are millions of families out there in the same situation, you are not alone, and you have support out there waiting for you!

    I’d like to start by saying that every statement you read here is a 100 percent authentic quote.You can check out every word and phrase on the internet. The only bits you won’t find already published are my own interconnecting comments. As the editor of the article, I have allowed myself the privilege of taking part in this imaginary “debate”. If the overall effect is at times surrealistic,  this is intentional. The entire 9/11 debate, after all, is an exercise in surrealism replete with the most bizarre Alice in Wonderland logic  The mere fact that the chief suspects of the 9/11 crime have been allowed to investigate themselves makes this only too clear.  The aim of the debate is to pose and answer the question: Who did 9/11?   The politicians and bankers always lie! So if they tell you they’re trying to solve your problem you have to ask, "From where did the problem arise in the first place?” How is it that year after year the politicians carefully and diligently steer our collective boat of destiny ever nearer to the rapids of destruction?” Please remember that the government, backed by the banking elite, who after all OWN the governments, GET EXACTLY WHAT THEY PAY FOR, if not it would not be a very good bargain, would it, and they would change the system. So when you ask, “Why don’t they ever change the system?” then now you know. The agenda rolls along, the plans go ahead. You become poorer. They become richer and you do nothing because you are worked to death and are too tired following the “agenda”.Listen and share the Free American shows with your friends and family and support it by making a donation at www.freeamerican.com

    Thursday July 30 Dr. Jake Wade is Under attack in Caldwell County (Lockhart Texas) and 
    Michal Collins Pipers Blockbuster book on the Kennedy Assassination. "Final Judgement"
     
    Final Judgment presents what the author, Michael Collins Piper, calls“the other side of the jigsaw puzzle” —


    the long - ignored, but otherwise freely available details (all found in “mainstream” literature), which present a stark new light on the circumstances  surrounding JFK’s assassination. This book demonstrates the strong likelihood Israel’s intelligence service, the collaborated alongside the CIA and the Meyer Lansky Crime Syndicate in the JFK assassination because President Kennedy  was working to prevent Israel from acquiring nuclear weapons of mass destruction, a fact that remained a dark secret for decades.  However, because it was not until the mid -1980’s that the truth about President Kennedy’s behind - the - scenes war with Israel emerged, many otherwise diligent JFK assassination researchers never co nsidered the possibility Israel did have good reason to align with other powerful forces  that wanted to remove JFK from the White House. Once you’ve read Final Judgment you will see the evidence of likely Israeli involvement is there
