Good morning all! Thank you Linda for your kind welcome. I'm sorry to hear you too are unable to really enjoy your grands.
Do your kids accept that you are ill and not lazy/crazy? Just when I think mine have accepted it, they pull some stunt that really hurts my feelings.Sometimes I think they don't trust me around the kids even!They even veto little Nana things, like I gave my gson a piece of peppermint and they made him spit it out....etc... it really hurts me.I don't know how to handle it at all.If I try to talk to them, they just get worse....
My husband is a suck up to them and doesn't support me at all. He is an intirely different person when the kids are around.
My youngest is by birth my bro's child. She and her 3 bros were deserted by their Mom.I think my kids resent her being here, why I don't know, as they have very little to do with me. It was so different before I became ill.I worked at least one full time job, besides running a home and raising 3 kids, that I put threw private schools so they could have a better life.
My bro isn't a great parent but at least he tries.He raised the 3 boys alone.The youngest is moderately retarded and demands a lot of attention.My bro is disabled, and lives on $540 a month.
I love my pets and my yard. I can't take care as well I'd like but they don't seem to mind! They accept me just the way I am, no questions asked!
I haven't got any family but my bro and his kids left around here. I do have lots of cousins in law that, believe it or not, I really enjoy being with.One even has FMS and so we have a lot in common.
Amber is 13 and is very sweet and helps me every day. She is the light of my life.
Sorry to write a book! I'll shut up now and listen to what you guys have to say.
I have gone to so many docs, and have had various dxs.I now see a pain doc, a pcp and a rhumatologist. I wish we could just see one doc like it used to be! Money seems to be the motivation for all these specialties.
