So, I suck at life... apparently.

Well something like that. It appears (without so much as an email notifying me.. bastards) my appeal for FA was denied... so I am officially (temporarily) not a student. The difficulties that come along with child baring, rearing, and really just about anything God made women for are not good enough reasons to completely fail classes... but ADD will be. Hopefully I'll secure a diagnoses in the next week or so. I have not exactly decided how I feel about taking amphetamines while nursing, or how I would feel about kicking the baby off the boob at exactly 1 year so I can take drugs; but I do know that I can't just not go to school, keep working at my crappy job, or really just keep sucking at life. So I'll pay for summer B, and then hopefully I'll have a diagnosis and get my full FA back for fall... maybe I'll get lucky and get reimbursed for the courses I paid for but I doubt it.
I'm going to try to get a joint appointment and have Rory evaluated as well - no amphetamines for her though, we'll try the natural methods first.

I'm sorry that you are facing this! It's amazing to me that you even TRY to do all that... If I ever go back to school, it will be while my KIDS are in school, and...even then it will be a gamble! People don't understand how hard being a mom can be. Oprah is right. Hardest job in the world.

And about the nursing...1 year is AWESOME. Don't feel bad if you have to "get yours" too. Your baby has been blessed by a mommy who's devoted to health, need to be healthy too.

Here for encouragement whenever you need it...even when I'm whining and complaining, I can still talk someone off a ledge... lol :)

Thanks! It certainly is a juggling act, one where I am often dropping a few balls (most commonly the balls marked the clean the house, exercise, and sleep.). I take classes mostly on line so that helps a bit... though I tend to be jealous of My Love for being able to go to school - it seems that I'd retain the knowledge better without three kiddies "mommying" me every five minutes!
