I wish people wouldn't automatically jump the ADHD bandwagon. My 5 yr is active, I know this. I keep him busy and interactive! Just because you can't handle him, doesn't mean I HAVE to medicate him.

Here's my vent:

I don't really have anyone to talk to IRL. I don't have any REAL friends anymore. I had these 2 best friends from high school that were like sisters to me, but both made horrible choices and I had to end the friendships (1 started dating a guy who ended up beating her 1 year old, and when CPS took the boys, she chose the man who beat her ds over her boys... The other is part of the reason my ex-dh is my ex)... Sometimes I feel really alone and wish I had someone to talk to, to grab coffee with, to go see a movie with, to just have girl time with... I have SO and my kids, but it's not the same. Plus my mom moved across country back in January when dd was 3 days old, and I don't even have any family left here. My mom and I were really close, and her not being here, it feels like she died. :(

My son's father has been playing the "I want to be a good father and be there for my son" card since I told him I was pregnant, but my son is 10 months old and has only seen him once for 5 minutes after our paternity establishing court. He enfuriates me! I have done everything possible to facilitate their relationship and I am exhausted!!

 Ha! That's an interesting thing to do. Good idea for tweens and teens to do as well

My dad has been having heart issues since 9-25 and went in today to try have his heart shocked back into a normal rhythm.  I was havig flashbacks all morning of the calls I made and received the day my grandpa passed away (12-19-12).  His procedure went well, but didn't work, so now not too sure what will happen.

I am very blessed to have a solid support group. There is always someone there when I need to vent. I feel like I am constantly venting about my fustrations with my son's father. I just don't understand how he claims he wants to be a part of our son's life, but it only seems to work out at his convenience. I know he visits our son more than some fathers, but the only presence he has provided, since leaving 6 months ago, is as a visiting playmate. I will be glad once I have some closure(divorce), and have accomplished a few of the life changes I am working towards.
