I’m having a hard time writing anything this week here in Canada. The temperature keeps going up and down and the situation at home is crazy! It’s been a rough one. My daughter has ADHD and she is in the middle of a re-evaluation. So this week, it’s no meds.
Now, what trouble can a 12 year old get in to anyways right? Wrong! I understand my job as a parent is to be patient, But what happens when your patience runs out? I am exhausted from trying to be patient. Everything inside of me holds in the screams and cries.
I can just hear the judging now. But, how can we learn from others when we don’t have anyone listen to us and help?
I was a young when I got pregnant. I was dating my first boyfriend at the time. I decided, yes, we would get married and have the baby because that would be the right thing to do. Little did I know he was abusive and liked to drink A LOT! I stuck it out for me and my daughter because I didn’t want to be done with my marriage at 23. But soon it was beyond safe and I had no choice, I had to leave. We snuck off in the middle of the night to a woman’s shelter.
Now, they are trying to rule out Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome because of the years I stayed. Life is not fair…
(I took this picture at the Calgary Zoo when I went this summer…his screaming really sums up what I am feeling.)
Part Two Later this week.
What do you wish you could do over and change in your life?
