Oh Nana Nan.. I LOVE your name (my mom's -81 yrs young-name is Nancy and she goes by Nana to.. she would be a Nana Nan too )!!
Big warm welcome to you.. I'm so glad you found us and that you found some conselation in the posts you've read. I admire you because you're working hard teaching our future leaders!!! Good for you. Sherrine, one of our moderators was a teacher too, I'm sure she'll be along soon. So you two will have that in common. I think we have a couple of other teachers on the forum too.
I know its hard to do all that you do and help raise your grand daughter. I know I couldn't do that.. but I'm not too good with kids..LOL. They just look at me like DUH.. You're weird lady!! I have 4 grands 2 boys and 2 girls they're about the same ages.. 5-8 yrs old. They're a bundle of energy and wear me out just lookin at them!! We don't have any of them around nearly as much as you do and I'm sure that's a challenge.
I can totally relate to what you said about reading and learning from this forum. There are times when I can't believe the things that we fibromites share. I've learned so much from this forum, I can't begin to tell you.
I just wanted to welcome you to the family. The folks here really care about eachother and we're always happy to welcome someone new.
Keep reading and posting!!
