    I haven't been on here in a while. I was having major problems with my 4 year old in school and my 3 and a half month old has had a bad cold for a little while now. Took him to the doctors 3 times and they keep saying it's just a cold that it'll pass. So I hope it passes soon. But I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm doing much better. I'm still stressed about the issues with my older son but I'm not letting them get to my head the way I was last month. I cant. Because i know if I end up screwing up there's going to be no turning back for me. The trust will be gone from my family, friends and fiance. Plus I won't do that to my boys. They're my world, my reason for breathing. So to let them down is not an option. And I wanted to say thank you all so much again. I was reading over a lot of your comments and thought how much they pulled me through everything that was going on in my head! I'm always here if anyone ever needs me. Email me if you have to.

    Thanks everything was fine until 20 minutes after I wrote that. My niece left a toy on the steps and me and my 3 month old went flying down the steps. Now I'm in the er with my infant staring at him with a next brace on. I'm about to go into a blind rage. But the goal is to focus on my son

    I'm glad to hear you're doing doing better! That's fantastic but I'm sorry about the problems with your son in school, it's normal for them to have problems starting school. I hope it's nothing too serious.

    As a fellow mother of a little one, I have to say, if your baby is sick enough to take to the doctor 3 times... and they keep sending baby home, maybe see another doctor? I had a lot of problems finding a good pediatrician when my daughter was born. I had to see a few before I found one that actually cared. Of course, you're mom and you were there, that's your call. But, if you're worried I'd suggest taking your little one to a new doctor and see what they say.

    Nice to know that you feel better now and hope that your baby will be fine the soonest possible. Good to know that you will not let them down and keep the spirit up. There will be always other ways to deal with stress and other matters in life.

To be sick and then have to deal with the fall, too...poor little guy. :(

    Proudsmomma, I saw this message some time ago and was probably too exhausted at the time to respond. I'm glad I have found it again and want to thank you for taking the time to update us. We really are happy when you take the time to let us know how you are progressing.

    I was reading and feeling very happy for you and then I come upon the details of you and the little one ending up in the ER? I pray you are all doing much better now. Sometimes in life it feels, like it's just one thing after another, but it's so important to get right back up and keep going. I am joining Dean in sending love and virtual hugs. I really do hope things are on the up and up.

    I am happy to hear you are doing better proudmama. Sometimes all we can do is keep putting one foot in front of the other and keep on going. You have a lot on your plate and we would all probably get tired of caring for little ones even if we didn't have other challenges, so you keep on going. It is the way to achieve your dreams.

    It's great that your kids are the motivation that keeps you moving on in life. You know you won't let yourself down because that would mean letting them down. And you would never do that. I'm just glad there's still people who would be willing to do anything for their children. The world needs more of your kind.

    Always remember that if you do feel the urge to relapse again, then just go to this forum to vent it all out. I do hope things will eventually get better for you and I wish you all the best.

    It's good that you have managed to encourage yourself. If you could have given up you could have not been where you are right now. Hope now you know how to look after your family without being stressed up. Show them love and always pray for them. Teach them on how to pray and they will also pray for you.
