Health Concerns

Healthwise, everything's not well in our family these past weeks. My older daughter never completely got over her cough and colds. During the day, she seems fine but it's a totally different story in the middle of the night and around 7 in the morning. During these times she either coughs or sneezes continuously.

As a mom, my heart bleeds for her. Her sleep is disrupted and she's having a hard time. Hers is not just a simple case of cough and colds anymore. Like me, she coughs and sneezes as allergic reaction to whatever allergen is found in our environment. Sad part is, we have no way of completely shielding her from these allergens without disrupting her everyday life as a young child.

Nowadays, fresh and clean air is not something you can easily enjoy. We are having these allergies because of dirty air. Sometimes neighbors' activities are the cause or contributing factors to our polluted atmosphere. Just imagine what it would be like ten years from now. I hope all citizens of the world will open their eyes and do their part to save our planet. Just think about our children and their future.

I believe that the majority of people would only be more than happy to make changes for the better regarding our environment.

Unfortunately the people who REALLY count, moneymen, decisionmakers, politicians will not take the chance.

Your post really made me to think that this earth is aging in accelerating rate.

We live close to the north pole so it's obvious to notice any climate changes (i.e. heat wave in April or blizzard storm in early Nov).

As a mother, I could imagine your situation. And I do HOPE your daughter's health is gradually improving.

Btw, how are you doing with the rhinitis?

Wishing you all a restful weekend .God bless ~ Annita.

My daughter is having the same problem, cough and sneeze at night and in the morning and it has been going on for about two months now, off and on. For the past few weeks, she has to use a puff as prescribed by the physician. Our environment is worsening, and our poor children have to suffer at such young ages.
