My name is Lois and in the last year...I got married and became the caregiver for both my parents. My mom had a massive double stroke that paralyzed her left side. My dad had quadruple bypass her surgery. Its been very difficult trying to handle everything and still maintain my job as an administrator in an elementary school. The ironic part of my life is I was a teacher for special needs children for over 7 years. I gather God knew what he was preparing me for. My days seem to never end and if I get 4 hours of sleep at night I'm thankful. I've gained 40 pounds in the last year and need to lose it. I'm planning on having a baby sooner than later and I have to definitely find some balance. I just need some words of guidance and support.......and a place to vent at times.
