Thanks for sharing what's going on at home. My kids are young (3 &5), and I know that they have a very different life than they would if I was well. I'm certainly not the parent that I dreamed of being. You sound like an amazing young lady, and I'm glad this site is offering you support, and that you are mature enough to accept it.
I'm thrilled to hear you guys are doing better too! There is enough stress in this world already and heaven knows, illness just adds too it like a big old boulder! You keep writing to us if you ever need to. We're here, we care (and frankly, I liked the story about the pink bangs!). Take care girl!
I'm glad that things are going better for you and your Mom. Have a good holiday together. High school will be over before you know it, and then your life will really get exciting.
Are you starting on a college search yet? With great grades and advanced classes, you might qualify for a good scholarship to a good school.
Keep us informed about how it's going. I'm so glad that we were able to help you ladies.
