Hi Keela, wow you have a lot on your plate! I give you so much credit!!! My SN son is 4 and not potty trained, due to gastro issues, he's delayed too. People are always asking me about it too, it really annoys me.Try to ignore them the best that you can... (((hugs)))

((HUGS)) are doing great. Don't let others get you down. People Sure do like to butt in on someone else business. But if the table were turned they couldn't take their own advise. Take a minute and breath. Your pretty tough momma! Don't let them Get you Down. Hope u have a blessed evening. :):):):)

So so so Glad you are here!!!  You keep doing what you are doing-and don't listen to the negative --only support-only positive--only if it's one person or only if it's here on this group--you keep doing-God Bless for caring for your son and your mother with alzheimers--and I am hoping someone will see what an awesome person you are and give you a break for your own time --to have time to yourself--

Take Care and we will support you here as much as we can and when someone says something negative just think of something someone said that was positive and/or positive person--Don't let them get you down


For you are an AWESOME MOM and DAUGHTER!!!!
