  • School will be starting testing....

    I had a meeting with Angel's teacher and the principal and some special ed. teachers. We have an education plan set for Angel. They asked if they could have Angel tested for AD/HD. I said please do! It would help to know if there is anything going on with her so that her teachers and I know better how to teach her.
    Angel's psychologist is also looking into testing Angel for other behavioral disorders.
    I think that Angel is just really stressed. But, I am open to testing her. I just want what's best for her. And, I don't want her to be "labled". Like, she isn't IC, she HAS IC. But, knowing she has IC, I was able to help her and have her help herself.
    I am a little nervous though. Mental illness does run in my family. I am sure she will deal with depression soon - if she isn't already dealing with it. I have had that problem for most of my life. It's been a long struggle. But, I am getting better because I am trying to take care of me. And, I have to tell ya all that you have been a great help. Just talking about things has helped me soooo much. I never talked about anything (important) with anyone until about a year ago. I don't want Angel to go down the same path I did. I want to get help for her now. I am not going to do to her as my parents did to me. I will not let her suffer and put her down for it. She is a wonderful child - as all children are. She deserves the best I can do for her.
    I just hope for her sake that there is nothing more "wrong" with her. Her life is hard enough. She is soooo sensitive. She cries so many times a day, it breaks my heart. And, a lot of the times, she doesn't even know WHY she's sad. That's a major sign of depression. I worry so much about her.

    With Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up I am getting more stressed out. And, it's going to make her more stressed out. My family already knows that they aren't getting anything from me - well, maybe some of my cheaper homemade stuff. But, because I can't buy them anything they really want, they aren't going to buy my girls anything. I am used to not getting anything for Christmas. I am happy just giving. But... I can't even give my girls anything. That depresses me. I feel so bad.
    I am hoping that they will be happy with home made soaps specially made for them.
    That reminds me.... I am hoping that I have enough supplies to do something I have always wanted to do. I want to make some one ounce glycerin soaps and lotion bars and give them to the people who go to this place here that helps people who are homeless or very poor. Several years ago, when I went there a lot for help, a lady who was having very hard times wanted to thank me for helping her deal with her little girl. So, she gave me a winter coat because I didn't have one. Just because she was poor like me didn't mean that she couldn't help someone else. I may still be poor, but I do have the ability to make things. I have a place to do it in. I may not have anyone helping me now. I haven't really had any help for a couple of years. But, that's not what matters. What matters is that I do something to help others.

    Ooooohhh.... I am soooo sorry! I am rambling again! Sorry about that.

    The things kids say!

    she isn't IC, she HAS IC
    That is an awesome lesson to teach Angel. The disease is not who she is, but rather something she has to deal with. That is great!

    I hope Angel does well with the testing. At such a young age, maybe you'll be able to get symptoms under control faster and easier.

    Good luck!

    Hugs and love,
    Mommy to 2 crazy, wonderful kids and wife to the most amazing man in the world!
