I haven't been on here for a while but I had to come on when I read your post because I known what you mean about family problems. My daughter has been in jail for DUI before. In July she drank so much she nearly died, she was in the hospital for 8 weeks. Now she is in relab. learning to walk and talk again. So yes families can make you sick. Linda
Oh no Donna! and yet you were still able to get all 10 right on the game yesterday! Sorry just trying to find the up side. I know this is gonna sound just awful but I had to learn to do this for my own sanity. If my day is becoming more than I can handle and I feel like just one more thing is gonna be more than I can deal with I ............turn my phone off! I trust God and my family to be able to handle whatever comes up and taught myself that it's ok to take care of me and the world will not end if I am not there to fix everything. It took a long time because I was always miss fix it. If my son's name came up on caller ID the first thing I thought before answering it was............Oh no what's wrong? lol. He even knows now that if he leaves me a message that he needs to tell me he was just calling to say hi and everything is ok. lol.
I guess I'm just saying try to find a way to take care of yourself. Give yourself permission to do what is best for you. I hope your rheumy appt went well.
Thanks Butterflake,good to be back posting again. I have been going through so much this summer that I haven't felt like getting on here but I have been reading all the post when I could. Hope you are feeling okey and I pray you never have to see your daughter in the shape my daughter is in from alcohol. Linda
Ok Donna, I just want to know 1 thing...................Does Tim have a brother? I'm always happy if my son has a girlfriend around mothers day. They usually make sure he sends me flowers. Otherwise I'd never get them!
