With that said I feel like people never talk about eczema in kids or adult. Is it because people are on educated  on the topic or do they think eczema is just a dry skin rash that happens when it gets to hot or it's to cold out.
 So I wanted to speak on my experience  on eczema and how I started doing my further research on it. When I was little I would here my older family member talk about that they have eczema  and how they treated it or I heard friends growing up talking about they have dryed skin called eczema and they treat it with  lotions and different types of soaps. Now that's what I heard as a young person so as I got older I just thought eczema  was a dry skin rash. Now when I had my oldest he was about 11 months or 1 years old and it was in the summer we were out all day then came in he was taking a nap something told me to look at his arm and in the increase of his elbow area there was a small red  spot I panicked a little. I thought to my self oh know he got sunburned or something he didn't cry when I touched it. so the next day I took him to the doctor and the doctor says  everything is fine its just a little eczema you can use eucerin lotion to sooth it.Ok its just eczema  dry skin got it. But then my son caught a cold when he was two in a half and every time he coughed he would weeze so we took him to the doctor again and his doctor prescribed him and inhaler to help with the weezing he would get asthma symptoms when he caught a cold but fine on a day to day. So as a mom I started getting curious asthma is hereditary but you can grow out of it. But as I did research I found that eczema  and asthma go hand in hand. How come know one talks about eczema and that it can lead to asthma and so much more health problems if I new that eczema could lead to asthma and other health problems I could of took better precaution for my oldest. Yes I was a new mom back then but it would of just been helpful. Now with me having my second son I was prepared my youngest has eczema  as well but I treated it with eveno lotion with a oatmeal base and it cleared right up.With him now eating solids me and his doctor talked about feeding him foods that are high in allergic so then that way we can see if he's allergic and he can build  his tolerant since he is more prone to allergic reactions and might catch asthma due to his brother having it and it's hereditary. Now when I talk to other mom's and if we get on subject of are kids health I always let them know about eczema  and how it's not just a skin rash it's telling you that there is a reaction to baby's skin and it can to lead to asthma and adhd and other health problems and not just to take it lightly. always keep an eye on your baby and do further research for your self.

I am reviewing this book for free for Chris Roy for a honest review and that is exactly what I am here to do.

When I saw the book cover of Her name is Mercie it intrigued me and the title pulled me in. 
I love to read book that have to do with mystery, crime scene an a good twist. something that keeps me at the edge of my seat wanting to read more.

Her name is Mercie is a book that is 162 pages of the characteristic I just listed above it is a book of five short stories that each character has it's own twist, turns and realness you can't even a imagine. But one character takes the cake for me.
Right when you start reading the first chapter you are pulled in to a scene just like a movie a lovely older couple that has liv…

Who put this shame
In between my shoulder blades
Sliding down my spine
Embedded in my DNA
Was it my mother
Dental assistant
Four- day weeks
What did she sacrifice
For her children
Or was it my father
Strong Hands picked tobacco
Six days driving trucks
He never owned.
I am the first
To uproot from red dirt
To explore foreign lands
To swim in cold water
Still I cannot carry
This guilt that crumbles
Heavy in my hands
Crushes me tender
Year after year.
