New year = New life

2012 was a rather rotten year for me personally. Actually speaking I guess the past 8 years have really sucked.

Our family has experienced a lot this year. Children on the brink of death, broken bones, broken hearts. Diagnoses of autism, unethical doctors, learning disabilities, depression and the list goes on.

This year has taken a toll on my spirit, my health, my faith. I have gained a massive amount of weight and consequently my health is suffering. Why did I gain so much weight? I guess I was trying to hide! How can a fat lady hide? Beats the heck out of me, but I sure thought it was working. I have gone into a lock down mode and my attitude SUCKS! I do not handle stress very well. I tend to take every set back personally. Which is an awful thing to do when you have 3 kids with autistic like characteristics.

So, 2013 is a welcomed sight! I’ve got a tight grip on reality and the pity party is over. Yes, I accept that my family isn’t a cookie cutter family. I’m ready to take this year by the “horns” and get the skinny mama back that I know is in there.

This blog has been a tremendous help in getting me to let go. Taking the time to blog has shown me that I’m still a person. I appreciate my readers, and followers.

    Hi! I used to work with autistic children and I know how difficult it can be, but from your post I see a strong mother doing the best for her children. May God’s strength and peace fill you.
