Well, lets see how this caltrate will work under stress. My husband and I have been taking it for awhile - and it has helped alot. Now big time stress- so let's see how it does - may have to up the dosage - Husband is going to Bosnia (I hope it keeps working for him too) my son got stuck by a dirty needle and has been on post-exposure prophalaxis medicine for 30days - now for the blood tests for the next 6 months to see if ANYTHING invaded his body. My employer won't let me go to day time shift while husband is gone (don't want to work at night and leave a 13 yr boy at home alone) so have to start a leave of absence for the whole summer - which in-turn will be no money. Then plan on driving to wisconsin this summer - never drove that far before me my son and our dog. So far my stomach is staying calm - have to watch what I eat - seems that under stress like this I have to watch my diet more carefully. I can't have (no, I WON'T) this flareup no. Everyone keep your fingers crossed for me. Next 6 months will be a learning lesson on how to keep it together under all this. I'll let you know if I crack

Yes, it does sound like your plate is full right now. Just remember to think positive through it all. And you must only take one step at a time. Don't look at the whole picture. It won't look so big and out of reach. If nothing else, think of Dorothy on the yellow brick road..... I think I can .. I think I can..... My son is in the Army and stationed in Germany. So I have an idea how you must be feeling about your husband. Know that there are lots of us here pulling for you!!!!

You have all my prayers and support! I'm such a worrier that I don't know what I'd do in your situation. But if you need a friend nearby - I'm also in your town! Not to mention I'm originally from Wisconsin.

I find that the time waiting for a stressful event and the time after the event are the worst. Your mind and body just knows it has to cope with the actual "event", and it does. I am thinking of you.
