Blogs! Blogs! There are so many out there. Each one so unique and different! Each one is so creative in their own way. Everyone is sharing a piece of their lives, their talents, their skills, their professionalism, their motherhood. Many may share the same experience, but in their own special way, so by sharing their same experiences even in a different way it makes all the more fun and exciting to read.
I started to blog I think in 2007 or 2008. It's been a while. I noticed the my readers are not all the same. And the ones I thought would be reading my blogs...don't. My family is one of them, even my therapist. Yet I do have to journal for my own good. I find it to be fun in my own creative way. However, there are times my fingers do most of the talking while my brain is napping. So if you find some spelling errors, it because my brain is napping and my fingers don't always know how to spell. (LOL)
I have a few ning sites of my own. One for friends who suffer from depression and one for my Academy (HS) Alumni Association. But this one here...is nice & different. It's a creative side I have forgotton and make good use of. I guess I need to go file searching in my brain and bring out those memories of how to do things again. Just to make it nice for them.
My main blog is at Blogspot by Googles. So...what I may do is copy/paste it here ...either that you can go over to read it there. Doesn't matter. I just don't want to repeat myself. I do that with my 20 year old son already. (You know men!!)
soooooooo!! It is call "A Mom' s Journey" here is the link if you are interested: http://journeyroadofamom.blogspot.com
I'm serprise I didn't name it in the url as : journey road of a mad mom! LOL but maybe it was for the best.
SO I'm sure you are wondering who I am, where I'm from and what I'm doing here? yes? no? ok?! well here it is anyhow.
I'm a 48 year old single mom...never married...happily single! My son just turned 20 and he suffers from duchenne muscular dystrophy. Prognosis is not good but so far God has been good to him. He should be on a trach by now. And so far he doesn't need one.
Tim has been attending the University of Florida. Go Gators!!! Unforunately he had to drop out due to his heath and the fact that the university is NOT a wheel chair accessible campus. It is handicap accessible but NOT wheel chair. He originally started to study in Microbiology in Vet /animal studies. But then he changed his mind to something else, and of course, again to something else. Men...you know how their minds work-at times.
His father prettty much has no been in his life. That alone is another story and you might catch it at my main blog. Let's just say a lot of people don't like him. And if u know who he is , you may know why. I think at times I'm to forgiving and to trusting.
I live at home with Tim because he requires 24/7 care. I don' work. I would like to work but I can't with Tim's condition. And we are just finally getting help from an agency for 9 hours a week. My back is telling me I'm putting i my time and I just don't get paid for it. Don't get me wrong. I love my son and I do it because it is him. If it was not for me being there for him, he probably would be six feet under. He is a very intelligent young man, funny too. He finished last semester with a GPA of 3.11 only because he didn't study like he should had. Can you imagine what it would be like if he had studied? I'm hoping he will at least take online classes.
I use to be a medical biller-for over ten years. That alone is a job of its own.
Well...I need to go.I really hate to cut this short. But Tim is hungry and I'm ready for a good movie and rest my back and I think now my fingers needs a nap.
Safe hugz...& thanks for allowing me to join here.
