The Wake Up Call
After my divorce 7 years ago I did every thing in my power to be a super mom. Instead of seeking professional schooling and employment I worked at the kids elementary school in order to be on their schedule. We continued to move to keep in the district that they were used to. Time has went on, and I now find myself with a 17 year old daughter and a 12 year old son. My daughter and I have always had a good relationship, so I thought. She just admited to me that she used to cut herself and thinks of it again. My son is fine and our relationship is still good. I hate to think of where I went wrong! I have always tried to listen, be there, raise her with respect and love. Now I hurt so bad and realize that children can really tear your heart out. I can see how some parents just "let go." I dont want to do that but now i am trying to get a career in Clinical Research and going to school and being the everything is about killing me. I am just rambeling on.
