Is it just my family that makes me not want to be around them?!?! Seriously I took my watermelon and my banana, blueberry and spinach drink to our fathers day get together and ALL I heard is that Im not eating enough, not getting enough of what I need?! I dont take vitamins... I have like 10 or so but they make me sick! So I was told If I dont get enough Folic Acid my kid will be retarted?? What Ive never even heard that! All I say is your right I should be eating pizza, KFC (which is what they were all eating), Cakes, pies... Fruits and Veggies is not good enough and I should get more "modern man made food" cuz I can tell with all the family health problems its working for you guys! OMGOSH! I told my husband that maybe we should just stay away till after the baby is born. OMGOSH the best thing was my gma said you dont want to have a "skinny" baby, you want a fat baby. LOL LOL I said I ate straight up JUNKFOOD with my daughter (after she was born and I feel Im love with her the moment ours eyes met, I never ate meat again.. going on 2 years of a slow change that is now full blown never going back) and she was ONLY 6 lbs 10 oz... so your saying she was skinny and unhealthy? Really?! When I started eating my watermelon they said omgosh your not going to eat all that. I said yes i am this is my dinner. My aunt said and your not going to share it? LOL Im thinking why would I you didnt get full on the CRAP your eating? So needless to say I needed to rant a little Im so over this crap... Im not having my baby at home due to my family pressuring me into hospital and calling me all the time telling me how unsafe it is... cuz they all didnt do it and no one in are family has ever had problems?! lol What I have learned from being Raw and being around people that cant except people for who they are is that you just might sometimes not be good going around them. Im not going to lie I do think about what they say and wonder what am I doing is this right am i gettinng enough? I keep track of it on cron o meter but dang sometimes im like I am crazy and I kinda like it... :) If anyone has had this PLEASE I could use a good story or laugh or just your thoughts.
haha well Im mad but I still want them alive:) Im just over it all, like I really feel like not going over there or being around until after the birth? I dont know, It sucks cuz Im a very family loving kind of person, I love just being around them... or I did. I just think Its not very nice, I dont say ANYTHING to them about what they eat! So why do they feel like they need to do that to me? ugh. what a rant:/
if a body is loaded with toxins the brain is likely to be uncouth and misfire and neglect the needs of others barley able to meet it's own as i see it.
You know Krystal, you could say that to them, nicely :). I had to say that to someone, which stopped them for good! That person bothered me SO much about it, and all I said (very nicely) is that I never tell them what to eat/ what they're missing from their diet/ how bad it is for their heart and health / the numerous scientific studies that I know of that prove just that, so please stop telling me, unless they were willing to hear the other side of it. I have done so much research on this, talked to doctors, and am very comfortable with my decision. It would be better if we used our time together to talk about more productive things.
Im probably going to have to say something... That is a fact. Thanks so much!
first they ridicule you then they fight you then you win. i think that is how it goes.
i stand up to unhealthy family members for their own benefit. besides they started it by saying off the wall stuff and feeling (self) threatened.
They do feel something... its crazy like on my fb when I post things, they like attack it. lol but when I answer them, or post durians vids they're like we were trying to attack you, Im like no worries I dont feel attacked I just wanted to help you understand things :) lol its kinda crazy!
this might help you with those Nominalizations
feeling attacked are they well it would seem they need empathy to their unmet need for safety and that is why they (really) feel scared and or angry?
Great idea: Tell your family you are having the baby in the hospital, then hire a midwife behind their backs. As long as home-births are legal in your area you should be fine - it's not against the law to lie to your family.
Really, hospital births are a bad idea. A high chance of them f***ing with you. Also, in most hospitals you aren't allowed to give birth in a natural position, they require you to lie on your back etc. Do you really want to use the conventional positions that put 67 pound of pressure on the baby's head and close the birth canal?
"The conventional delivery positions – recumbent and semi-sitting – close the birth canal by 20 to 30%.25 The baby is used as a "wedge" to force the birth canal open. Obstetricians, unaware of what is causing the obstruction, resort to drugs and elaborate appliances to "extract" the fetus. Their crude and forceful procedures increase the risk of injury to mother and baby.
Almost all hospital delivery rooms prohibit the use of the squatting position, so women are forced to use the Valsalva Maneuver. They hold their breath and push with all their might – oblivious to the fact that the birth canal is partially closed. This maneuver puts enormous strain on the pelvic floor."

After you read the pregnancy section you may want to read the rest of it. It is heavily cited and sourced to medical journals and other reliable sources of info.
Not meaning to give you any further stress, but of course, knowing this info, I feel it is my duty to help people out when I can.
my sister just had a home birth 8.5 pound baby. leaving the placenta on till all the nutrients come out and the baby doesn't cry when it's cut.
All over it thanks so much! I am almost 7 months, and have already signed papers with the hospital, its gonna cost 10,000 just for baby, not including the time im there after birth. I am taking all my questions and concerns with hospital birth to my up coming apt.
Right on Meg :).
