Re: Im mentally breaking

Trying,

As another single mother, I feel for you and for your worries. Do you have help? What state are you in? Do you have family nearby?

We all know the anxiety and having a young child only adds to it. I hope you have someone that you can reach out to.

Good luck tomorrow.

I acquired this disease living overseas, working in Africa and working with someone with active TB. (He might not know he has active TB.) Anyhow, when you have a...

Re: BeansMama - I'm still kicking (butt that is)

I'm so glad you posted. I am upset for you about insurance. I'm glad others have given you better information.

Take care of your Bean. It's no wonder that she is stressed out. I'm glad she is going to a counselor. Our children bear so much stress.

Have a great vacation.
