The day has arrived, my son will be leaving for a month to go to Nanna's. Typical visitation, has been going on for the last 2 and a half yrs, but it kills me everytime he leaves, two months home, one month gone. Do any of yall have shared custody and how do you deal with it? cry I try to use the time he's gone to recouperate and often my husband has his surgeries while our son is gone, but my son is the entire reason I get out of bed LOL Though hubby's not his biological father, my son decided he was daddy after meeting his own father the first time, actually helped me decide to marry my current husband. smilewinkgrin
During the time he's gone, I rest as much as possible, and the time I would have spent chasing him, I spend cleaning, but you can only clean and rest so many hrs of the day, does anyone have any suggestions to help me keep my remaining sanity? LOL I have several hobbies, including scrapbooking and lifetime membership to the local zoo (who knew Desert Phase California King snakes were rare in KS, and donating one to the zoo would get our family name on a spiffy bronze plaque usually reserved for large cash donors? LOL)

Though I harbor an extreme dislike of my ex mother in law, (ex hubby signed over parental rights to her) I know that my son needs as many ppl in his life who love him and that he will be a better person in the end for having such a large family, I mean, LOL he has 8 grandma's in total! He's also the only grandchild on both sides, as well as for his step-grandmother, he makes a killing at birthdays and holidays.

I know how you feel. I have 5 kids and I live 400 miles from my X and yes it kills me when they are gone. This year they went for 3 weeks and home for 3 weeks and then gone for 2 and home for 2.

The 3 weeks dang near killed me and my marriage. I am remarried to a man who has 6 kids and we have custody of 5. But they don't go to far as their mother married a sex offender and can not have contact with the kids. It was very hard to have my kids gone that long. I almost went to visit my mother who lives in the same town as my EX just so I can spend the days with them since Ex and his wife both work.

My EX wanted the kids all summer this year since my youngest is 5 and I said absolutely not, I need summer time too.

Oh got some news from an ER doc that's seen me for the last 4 yrs.... I went into the ER last night, TMJ arhtritis flare, he did x rays of course, and then called for the rest of my x-rays, as I've had so many, he told me I have degenerative polyarthritis, he said from what he could tell I had this all over, and in my spine, after a lumbar z-ray he told me that I have bone spurs and possible spinal compression in that a bad spill could paralyze me, and was rather angry that my pcp was not treating me for this, only anti-depressants, anti-anxiety, and muscle relaxers. He gave me 6 Tylenol 3's and sent me home, to return if condition worsens. I call my dr today, who is leaving the office July 10th, I tell his nurse what is going on, JMT, migraine and over all flare, and ask if I could possibly get some temporary pain meds, as the 1600mg of ibuprophen and 4000mg of acetometaphen he has me on, is not enough. No word back yet, but I am relieved that after he leaves an internist will be replacing him. I'm not sure he's comfortable treating fibromyalgia and has completely overlooked as to what I see a bigger problem, the degenerative polyarthritis.
