Out of the Loop

I’ve been out of the loop lately, in regards to blogging and keeping up with current events. Truth is, I haven’t felt well the past few weeks and have progressively felt worse with each passing day. I have an appointment with a doctor on Tuesday and hope to have a full blood panel ran.  Since I have fibromyalgia, which I manage naturally without prescription medication, it takes me a long time to finally give in and go to the doctor. Usually I find the old adage to be true: go to the doctor feel better in 7 days, don’t go and feel better in a week. I just don’t go to the doctor, outside of prenatal care of course. The last time I was at the doctor for feeling bad was 2006! Even then it turned out to be something he could do nothing about: a ruptured ovarian cyst. I went because the pain in my right side was so intense I could not walk, lay down or sit. I was afraid my appendix was about to explode. Instead I was sent home with the instructions to take Motrin and rest.

Some people rush to the doctor for a hang nail. I am not that way. I’m just not.

Anyway, I am sure we will find my Vitamin D level is low, as well as my B12, magnesium and possibly iron. My hormones, estrogen and testosterone ,are probably imbalanced as well. I’ve never had a problem with sugar or blood pressure, but that may change. I am still only 38, after all. There is likely a whole slew of other matters that need addressing as well. I compartmentalize everything. I want everything placed into categories and lined up so I can see exactly what I am dealing with and what needs to be done. That’s just how my brain works. Disorganization makes me a nervous wreck, lol.

Anyway, I’ll try to be better at keeping up with and sharing important news bits but I’m not making any promises because, frankly, I JUST don’t feel like doing much of anything. That’s dangerous ground for a stay-at-home home school mom of a special needs child; thus the reason I’m relenting and going to a doctor. Hee-hee, but it is a DO, not a MD. I gotta know if there is a more holistic, natural way to regain my health before automatically being given a synthetic pharmaceutical that I am bound to for the rest of my life like a Band-Aid that just cannot be ripped off.

Anyway, I’ll stay in touch. Keep looking up and maranatha! I’m certainly looking forward to that glorified body that does not get sick!

City of Sodom Found?


After 10 years of digging, archaeologist Steven Collins, of Trinity Southwest University of New Mexico, and his team believe they have discovered the location of Biblical Sodom in the Southern Jordan Valley in Jordan, about 14 kilometers northeast of the Dead Sea. However, they are struggling to solve a deep mystery.

The city, with its massive walls, palaces, administrative buildings and surrounding farm region, flourished and dominated the region for 3,000 years. Based on evidence found at the site, some 4,000 years ago the entire area suddenly became uninhabited for over 700 years. Archaeologists and scientists are attempting to figure out why.

While digging at the Tall el-Hammam Excavation Project, Collins studied accounts of Sodom extensively, explaining to Popular Archaeology, “Tall el-Hammam seemed to match every Sodom criterion demanded by the text.”

We know very little about the Bronze Age in the south of the Jordan River Valley. Most archaeological maps of the area were blank. But what we have found is an important city-state, which was unknown before our project began,” he said.

“Tall el-Hammam matches the description of the area where Sodom was located according to the Bible. It was said to be the largest city east of Kikkar. When we explored the region, Tall el-Hammam was an obvious choice, as it was five to ten times larger than the other Bronze Age cities throughout the region, even those found beyond Jordan.”

One of the characteristics of Sodom mentioned in the Bible is the incredible richness of the area.  Lot, Abraham’s nephew who escaped Sodom when it was destroyed, chose the Jordan Valley for this particular trait (Genesis 13:10). The area of Tall el-Hammam fits that description well. The farms in the area took advantage of the annual flooding of the Jordan River, planting in the newly deposited rich silt as the floodwaters receded.
