Make the best of the situation. It doesn't have to be all or nothing, right? Most important thing is stay involved and foster relationships. Being completely honest with them about your health situation and how you feel inside would be vital. That way your kids understand the situation as much as possible.

I wonder, if you COULD home-school, if you could find someone to be on your tag-team. When you're down, tag them and they can take over for a while. That's be cool.

Thank your for loving on your girls. You sound like a great mom!

And we all lived happily ever after...

My ODD actually does think that it is a good idea, YDD does not and is not happy. ODD does not want me to go in the hospital again... I'm not doing good right now and am dealing with a lot of PTSD induced panic attacks and episodes.

One of the concerns was what would happen if I go in the hospital again, so I told DH that he could put them in PS if I did, which somehow between him and my therapist led to this. A lot have said that if they are going to start school the beginning of the year would be the best time.

I'm heart broken, but I think it is for the best because I could become incapable of doing homeschool at any time.

Glad you got your assessments done, I bet that was a relief.

I was actually looking forward to school starting, I had all kinds of plans and fun stuff in mind. We are still going to do some of them, like the compost and making chocolate and stuff like that. Just it will probably be on weekends or in the afternoons

I'm sure you'll need support either way you choose. My question is, how will P.S. help you deal with your P.T.S.D. ? What is the goal you are trying to reach, that your PTSD inhibits? Do your girls think P.S. would be a better choice in the family situation?
Lots of things to think about.


On MY end of things, I finally got my assessments over, after having to postpone them for 1 month since my Dad passed away. What a crappy month, is all I can say.
Just as I had my homeschooling stuff spread out all over the library, I had to bring home thousands of photos and work on a funeral project. Needless to say...that library is A MESS!

I'm not dreading school starting again, but this was the worst 'assessment season' I've had since I began in 1999. I just wanted to have time to POUT about missing my Dad...and my Mom. I didn't want to focus on ANYTHING else.

But I got it done. And we are all ready indeed for the needed break.
Because Dad gifted us with some money, we have a cushion to support us, so I can actually afford to purchase some things that I haven't been able to purchase for 6 years! THAT will be nice.

But right now? I am soaking up PEACE. AHHHHHHHHH........

And we all lived happily ever after...

Praying for you! That would be rough I would think. You can always take them back out if you would like at a later date. Blessings to you on this new journey! Julie

We, my husband and I, talked about sending the kids to PS if I got bad again in Spring (spring is when my PTSD is usually at it's worst). I talked to my therapist today and she said absolutely, but why wait? And my husband said the same. My response was that we'll be moving in December or January and could be different schools, I would not want to move them after all that. But again, why wait. So as far as I can tell, we will be enrolling our two girls into public school,

Can I still do the fun stuff with them? I got the botany curriculum from Guest Hollow ( I LOVE it and highly recommend it), it has lots of fun experiments and books that go with them in the study of botany... can I mix a little bit of homeschool into our afternoons after school? or on the weekends? If I remember our whole afternoons were spent doing homework when my oldest was in school, but then we had to fight her every step of the way in getting it done (then undiagnosed ADHD)

I'm very worried about them. Youngest is most sensitive and cries at the drop of a hat, oldest has started her period already and has started to not care about anything.

I'm very distressed, I had not expected this to happen so soon and now we are on a countdown to get everything done before next Thursday and then all the rest done before August 3rd. I'm overwhelmed and saddened. I had decided last year I wanted to homeschool through high school and then I ended up with my PTSD acting up worse than ever and being in the hospital for 8 days, aftewards it took me months to get up to par and I could not homeschool for quite a while, at least not to my standards and not for a full day only the mandated 4 hours a day.
