My kids are 18, she just came back to live with me and she is a recoverinig drug addict and that alone makes things very hard as well as her thinking because she is 18 she can do what she wants as she in an ADULT! HA they should make that age 28 or over:)
My son is 14 and heavely involved in basketball plays for 3 teams and is really good might even be able to get a scholarship to college on BB.
My daughter 13, smart smart smart in all girted glasses but I prob dont need to say much more but girl and 13.
My son, 10 addhd and so full of energy and he is tuff but owns my heart completley. I choose not to put him on meds as I have seen what they do to other kids that are on it. But it makes it hard.
My prob is 1 I am only working part time as of now sense my accident and the doc told me that my SI joint is dislocted and I have not been responding to any of the treatments thus far its been 5 months now. I do PT 3 times a week and that does not include any extra doc appointments.
I have lost 1/2 my income due to only being able to work part time. Mentaly Im on the verge of a nervis breakdown because my days off are at docs or trying to do housework, run errands, After school there is homework, extra cir. activities, and I feel like there is no way to manage all this on my own. I cry evey night, I dont get more than 4 to 5 hrs a day of sleep. Im exhausted phyicaly, mentaly, and emotionaly. Then top that all off with dealing with 3 teenagers and a 10 yr old and all that come with that. I cant afford to stay where im at, my mom and dad are already paying my rent and car payment sense accident and I still cant make it with them paying that.
I was thinking of sending my kids to there fathers but the down side to that is that im in sc and he is in philly and thats a long ways away and I feel very torn about disrutping my kids life put I just dont know how to manage this all on my own. I was hard pressed to do it all when I was 100% let alone now hurt and in constant pain all the time. I just dont know what to do anymore. I feel like all I am in a body in my own home . How do you make that decission? How did you handle it and do you think it was the best thing for them in the long run? I was just looking for some input from someone that has been there and might be able to offer up some suppport or answers that I may not be thinking on.
Thank Cloe for the reply
