I don't know if I have welcomed you. So welcome, you will find so much support from everyone here. We all have been where you are. I'm the same story just different name. I have always been the one to take care of everyone, the one to hold everything together. I can't do it anymore and it hurts. We have a big adjustment to make and that takes a lot of time. Our friends here will help us, they will listen to us and give advice when we need it. And best of all, no-one here will judge you because they know what limitations can do to us.
Carolyn, I will pray for you and your daughter. Our children are so dear to us, seeing what could be their future can be scary. I to had a scare with my youngest daughter. She was having double vision and when we had her eyes checked (thinking it was just that she needed glasses) the doctor told us that her optical nerves were swollen and that indicated a brain infection or tumor. I was so scared and could not react because my daughter was right there when he told me. We had an emergency MRI the next day and luckily there was no problem with her brain. We have had her checked several more times over the past two years and her optic nerve has gone back to normal. They do not know what caused the problem but she seems to be fine now. I will never forget how I felt, it was one of the worst feelings ever. I am so glad I have all of you to talk to.
