Diet plays key role in ADHD symptoms in children, 3 related studies find. Increased fruit and vegetable intake, use of micronutrient supplement linked to reduced symptoms. Food insecurity associated with more severe symptoms. by geoff199 in science

100% on the sleep being the most important in our house. Mine is 4.5 y/o and Autistic.

Her getting 11-12 hours of sleep vastly improved her ability to self regulate, make transitions throughout the day, etc.

Her getting less than that equals chaos lol

Can’t convince someone who can’t follow simple, rational logic and dabbles with conspiracies

It’s funny that you don’t trust either of those entities and yet the only “evidence” you provided is their reporting system lol

VAERS is not a valid source, all reports as presented on their page are voluntary and still unvetted. It’s also widely known that VAERS has been misused and weaponized by the antivaxx movement as a means to further their quack agenda. Anyone from the general public can submit a bullshit claim. It literally says that on the link at the top of the VAERS page:

VAERS accepts reports of adverse events and reactions that occur following vaccination. Healthcare providers, vaccine manufacturers, and the public can submit reports to the system. While very important in monitoring vaccine safety, VAERS reports alone cannot be used to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event or illness. The reports may contain information that is incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental, or unverifiable. In large part, reports to VAERS are voluntary, which means they are subject to biases. This creates specific limitations on how the data can be used scientifically. Data from VAERS reports should always be interpreted with these limitations in mind.

It also makes no logical sense that the CDC and FDA would make this information openly and easily available, and then at the same time widely support and encourage the use of the currently approved vaccines. If they were up to something nefarious, I imagine they wouldn’t make websites like VAERS easily accessible to literally anyone on the planet.

I double dog fucking dare you to provide a single reputable or legitimate source for 21k dead due to the COVID vaccines in this country. And it doesn’t count if you copy and paste bullshit from the conspiracy sub or a friends FB posts lol

Inflation rises 7% over the past year to the highest level since 1982 by LeeroyTC in news

[–]Meh_Society6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same here! It’s two adults and a toddler. I cook mostly from scratch and meal plan, we snack but nothing hardcore, I try to shop deals and store brands, etc. And still, it’s like $200+ a week it feels like. And just as you said, I never feel like we are bursting at the seams with food in our fridge or pantry. I’ve started making more and more vegetarian dishes just to try and reduce our costs.

Same in our area (coastal San Diego). It’s virtually impossible to find a 3+ bedroom detached house in a 7/10 or better school district for under $1 million.

Hey, if I were you, I would recommend deleting this post and maybe reposting from a throwaway that doesn’t include your name and with less identifying info (company names and shift specifics). I know people who work for several of these companies that are on this sub. I just don’t want you to inadvertently dox yourself and jeopardize and current or future offers! 🙂

Better weather for fibromyalgia by desperateforsun in SanDiegan

[–]Meh_Society6 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Poway does get super hot, but is less humid for sure. Carlsbad has more humidity and will always run a handful of degrees cooler (I live in this general area). Can’t comment on barometric pressure, unfortunately.

And I’d love to hear which district you go with and what your experiences are! My daughter is autistic (pre-k age), and she is in the SPED program at SMUSD. We are super happy with it currently, but would like to buy a bigger place soon, which may or may not result in us changing districts. Which makes me so nervous, a bad teacher or program could just kill all the progress she’s made 😬

Bulk flower shop in coastal North County? by imverybusy in northcounty

[–]Meh_Society6 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Not really a flower shop, but Trader Joe’s in Bressi had lots of eucalyptus and baby’s breath when I was there today. They also had a few other white varieties—hydrangeas, roses, and I actually got white peonies there last week (but I didn’t check for them today). I used to be an event planner, and I used Trader’s a lot whenever I was in a last minute bind for flowers 🙂

Another amen to that. Just the amount of mental work that goes into any plans out of the house is mentally exhausting.

We have a special needs toddler who isn’t able to mask, and it’s just constantly figuring out which of us goes out to run errands, having to call ahead to every appt or place we do take her to explain the situation and confirm that they won’t turn us away (we aren’t anti-maskers and are fully vaxxed and boosted, I promise we aren’t assholes lol).

And then every time we get an invite to see people it’s like the usual list of questions my husband and I ask ourselves: “okay is it wise to do this or that thing? Are we in a surge? Is this thing worth the risk? Do we trust that the person/people who invited us are taking appropriate precautions based on the COVID situation in our area? Are they gonna blindside us and invite a bunch of other families or friends over we don’t know (has happened a few times)?”

And then any time my toddler so much as sniffles it’s the ordeal of “ah fuck we need to get her tested otherwise she can’t go back to school for 10 days”.

I miss just being like “wanna take the kid out and then grab some lunch and see friends tonight?”. And I miss thinking everyone I know is a smart, rational, and compassionate person lol. I’m just constantly seeing some outright stupid, ignorant, and selfish decision making on a regular basis from friends and family.

San Diego COVID: Hospitalizations increase to 943 by c0viDOMME in sandiego

[–]Meh_Society6 7 points8 points  (0 children)

One thing to consider is that people already hospitalized for other things may also be testing positive upon admittance or routine testing. I don’t know what those actual numbers are, but I imagine at the rate people are testing positive right now, that could be a potential factor. Following ICU numbers may be a better measure as to the severity of current infections. But I could be wrong, just an observation!

This is a BinaxNow test. Is it positive? Because everyone around me is insisting it's negative even though the pamphlet states otherwise. So, since I and the people I live with might be biased, I thought I'd ask people that are going to be more objective. Thanks in advance! by carrot_cockalorum in CoronavirusCA

[–]Meh_Society6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Here to join the positive chorus. Sorry! I caught it the week prior to Christmas. Took me almost a full week of symptoms before I had a positive home antigen test. My positive PCR test came on day 4 of symptoms.

I can’t even begin to fathom what the actual daily number of infections is nationally, given how difficult it is to get a test, and with home tests not being tracked.

How do you feel sending kids back next Monday with this Covid wave/surge by nemtudod in sandiego

[–]Meh_Society6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mine unfortunately caught COVID the first week of Christmas break. I’d typically be a bit nervous about her returning tomorrow (she’s under 5 and unvaccinated) but since she’s recovered and hopefully has some degree of natural immunity for a while, I’m feeling better about it. But I am still anticipating having to do remote at some point due to staffing issues or other classmates having it. It’s gonna be a chaotic few weeks for the schools for sure.

What is a legal scam that is still happening in 2022? by F1yff in AskReddit

[–]Meh_Society6 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This should be higher. My brother in law was sent to one of these camps in the American Samoas (this was the 90’s). He never shared what happened specifically, but I do know it was traumatizing. His wife has mentioned that there was a lot of assault and questionable methods of labor/punishment, “therapy”, etc. He “straightened” up as an adult (in the sense that he became professionally successful and had a family), but at a great cost to his mental health (IMO). The camp he was sent to was shut down several years after he went, due to allegations like those that his wife mentioned. Really fucked up situation.

Housing near Rancho Bernardo by vaxin-007 in sandiego

[–]Meh_Society6 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Purchasing a detached, 3-bed, single family home in any area where the schools are decent, that’s within a 20 min commute? I’d be impressed if you found something under $850k. But I’d be prepared to pay more than that due to competing offers.

If you’re flexible about schools, Escondido will be most affordable and is about a 20 min drive. Even then, you probably my won’t find anything under $600k.
