I'm really sorry for not being on in over a month. It's been hell. I've had a crashed laptop, all the new teacher regulations, random crap, and more struggles with my daughter. I'm down, slightly. I've started eating more fruits and vegetables. A banana with breakfast and a salad with lunch and dinner. I am trying to do yoga and circuit training while watching tv. It's helped a bit. Unfortunately, the tantrums with my daughter have effected my workouts. Her tantrums have caused me to miss out on some. For those of you not aware, these are not typical tantrums. She has severe ADHD and a non-specific form of mental health issue that will most likely not be diagnosed until she's a teenager.

    One of my Grand children had that and I can remember my daughter giving him time out by putting him in his pushchair for 5 minutes.

    emoticon Sorry to hear that you are going through some tough times. Dealing with kids can be rough. If you need to vent I am an email away. I'm also a social worker who worked with kids with mental illness, emotional and behavioral problems if you need any ideas or someone just to bounce ideas off of. Remember you are stronger than you think.
