Went to the Dr. on Friday, Damian, my 14 year old son, may be having seizures. I start a new job on Monday - Tomorrow, stress is mounting. I will make it through this... Why does my kid have to suffer through Tourettes syndrome, ADHD, a sleep disorder and now possibly Epilepsy as well??? He's such a great kid and these challenges, well.... it's just not fair. I feel like shouting it from the rooftops, it's not fair!!! But who is listening? Why us? I feel sorry for myself for the first time in I don't know how long. I could make long lists of reasons I could feel sorry for myself, but no - I always try to find the bright side of it, use it to channel into art, into making myself a stronger person but why the hell should my kid have to be drug through all this??? Where is the bright side... ???

Shelby, I think we need to get together soon. Sounds like we could both use a dose of us. Thinking about you.
