Jeees Kim,

what next? my friend.....now your son is sick, and your daughter has a broken bone in her foot....i agree with you, it it past time for this dark cloud to move on and leave you and your family alone.

Did you have to take an ambulance to the er last night? Do you feel they really cared and helped you? Sounds like the dr. realizes the extent of pressure that is on your shoulders, and i hope he truly cares and helps you. I can certainly understand why you are depressed....there is not a human alive who could go through what you face each day and not be depressed....I hope you can find the energy to give yourself a hug, and accept the depression without "beating yourself up" over it.

Keep coming here, releasing your frustrations to us, and letting us walk with you....wish we could all be there in person, but i hope you can feel our support surrounding you.

Pray, Pray, Pray, This situation calls for the man, GOD. Get on your knees and cry out to him, tell him that you need him to take control of the situation. He will and like that things will get better. I know you feel like things couldnt get any worse but I know things will get better for you and your family. Kim, you are so strong and you will make it through this and so will your husband. Just hang in there a little while longer. Take everyday one day at a time. And everyday pray to God for CONTINUOUSLY blessing you. Kim, you will make it. Remember, God may not come when we think he needs to but he is definitely on time!!!! Stay strong, and positive. Think positive, be positive. You are in my prayers, Kim. Im sending you 1000 hugs:yes:
