wow kim,

once again, sweetie, you are needing huge group hugs.:grouphug:

i so wish i could do more for you, just really breaks my heart. Please do not ever apologize or feel badly for leaning on us....you, my friend, are truly deserving of a shoulder to lean on.

i know your frustrations about your son....my son came home a few years ago, and made my life pure hell....he had no respect for me. He left over a years ago, and just recently moved back home. This time he is a huge help, and seems to have a different attitude....he is not trashing my house or me...i am actually enjoying his company. Hope your son comes around, and if not, then maybe someone needs to "jack up" his back side, and give him an ultimatum....you don't need this stress added to your already burdened shoulders.

i also know your frustrations about weight. I also put some weight on from steroid injections....i have not been able to get off, because i have not been able to exercise. it drives me crazy, and can be so depressing....it is truly a battle within myself.

I can not tell you have incredibly sorry i am about Sarah....i hope someone can help her get past this horrific time in her life.

and as if everything else is not enough, the flu is back and stephen is having chest pains.....oh, it is definitely time for the dark cloud to move on from over your head.

you keep venting, you are a part of our world-wide family of the sky, and we will always be here. Take care and find peace, this is my prayer for you.

oh Kim. :( Boy the storm of SugarHoneyIcedTea in your life just won't let up. I am so sorry to hear that things are worse right now. What happened with Sarah today? I wish there was something I could DO for you but all I can offer up is prayers and a listening shoulder. And some vertual hugs for you.
