psssst Cathy... I frequent two other sites (non diet) and things are quieter there as of late. I think it's that spring/summer are here and people are just out and about.
You could be right about talking about this before. I'm sorry for my poor memory. I "lost" a lot of months when my own depression was bad. Counsellor and I now figure it was there months before it was finally diagnosed. And I came here as I was "coming back to life". Sure don't wanna ever go there again! It truly is a black hole.
I wish our son would stick to his meds, but he is still trying to come to grips with his disorders. Until he does, all we can do is be there for him and continue with prayers. He moved out (in a rage-and by his choice) last fall. Our daughter is now getting some truly deserved quality mom and dad time. I love my son to pieces, but his moving out was the best thing for all of us. We continue to supplement him now and then, as he's working minimum wage jobs, but it's well worth it for all of us.
Huge step for him 2 weeks ago - he got his hair cut! Mom sprung for it, as he was broke, but understand this was a mess of hair, not cut in over 18 months, in dreadlocks and a scraggly 6" goatee and looooooooooong sideburns to boot. He has it very short, gelled and trimmed the goatee and shortened the burns... and does he look handsome again!! Maybe I'm getting my son back
I am completing my master's thesis (Special Educ) on AD/HD and the need for pre-service teachers to get training in working with these kids before the pre-service teachers ever get student teaching. I'm nearly done. With any luck, I'll finish it end of June or so and graduate in Oct. It's because of my son I chose this topic. It's been a very difficult thing for me as so much emotion is involved, but in a way, it's been therapeutic.
Anyway.. am off to work on it again.
I'll keep your grandmother in my prayers Cathy *hug*... I've been down that road with my maternal grandmother myself.
