On Tuesday i woke up and took a shower. I wasnt feeling well so i decided to give myself a breast self exam. Unfortunately i found a lump and saw some swelling. They have been hurting for a month. I kept making excuses. My period, I am fertile… But after all that, they were still hurting. They started hurting more and my nipple looked lopsided. So i went to the doctor and she seen the same thing that i saw. Needless to say she sent me for a Sonogram and Mammogram. Let me tell you, that mammogram hurt like hell. Your breast is a pancake. lmao. But i had the Sonogram. I will keep my blog readers posted. I get the results this week.
My point is this: You have to be careful. We take life for granted.. It could be just a cyst, or cancer or nothing… I just want to feel better, and the pain to stop. Period. Get tested. For everything, no matter what. period. Love and Peace
So my ex and I have finally started speaking after 4 years to co-parent for the sake of our daughter.. I guess feuding parents do not see that when your children figure out how to manipulate a situation, they will. Our daughter too advantage of the fact that we do not speak. She started to lying to both of us and we didnt know the wiser… I broke the code of silence and contacted him in reference to one of her lies. It was a slow process but we was both there for her today for her first class of gymnastics. We stood next to each other and actually cracked a joke or two. He beat the shit out of me once… Destroyed my ankle to the point that i am going to therapy now for it… He did that 8 years ago… He also punched me in the face in 2009. My point is i let it go… WHen there arent any feelings involved, and for the love of the child, you should be able to co-parent and let go of the hatred. Laila looked very happy today… And that is all that matters.. As long as we get along. Have a great day.
Happy fathers day… to all the real fathers on the planet… Not the ones that only pay child support and think they are doing something.. WHat would the world be if all the mothers of the world did that? Decided, heres ur kid, heres some money peace out. The men would cuss us… Just like we cuss them. I do know some single fathers…But they always find some chick that falls in love with the child and help them… Mothers do too, sometimes… We,, people like me are too busy being judged but thats another story… Back to the facts, Happy fathers day to the real fathers out there, that actually are around their children and care… Hats off. And to the women like me,,,, Happy Fathers day as well
How many of us have them?
Good things DO HAPPEN to good people.. It is very very hard to focus on the good things while all the bullshit piles up on your lap. I was stressed out about My Laila having adhd.. and have decided to refrain from medication for now… I am going to try and use natural methods, vitamins and so fourth… I spoke to my daughters brother who also suffers from it, and he a child, gave me some really great tips… I dont want Laila to lose herself. I enjoy her beautiful soul… Wish me Luck… Have a great day
I KNOW IT HAS BEEN AWHILE! But i am saying Hello.
I have a lot on my plate as of lately and i am trying to handle everything in a timely fashion. But right now, i would like to talk about a MOTHERS INTUITION. My youngest daughter Laila has always been my shining star. She is what i call My gorilla artist. She can take whatever and make art out of it. But there was always something off to me about My Laila… Her tantrums were another level. Her focus was Nil. If she had to sit long enough, she would just fall asleep. At first i just kept dismissing it as she is a kid. But now she is 9, and it is catching up to her. She cant focus in school… Her grades are suffering…. And she is starting to feel like an outsider. “Whats wrong Stinky?” my nickname for her, ” Nothing, I just dont remember.” When she was younger she NEVER remembered peoples name. She would ask you ten times that same day “WHATS YOUR NAME AGAIN?” It was so cute then, now…. Not so cute. Smh…. So as a mother, I asked her school to evaluate Laila… WHy? Because her grades are suffering, and they are considering leaving her back. The big STATE exam is coming up, and i feel deep in my heart, Laila is going to fail and get left back for sure… Before the evaluation, the school and I made sure Laila got her tutoring, resource room and whatever else they could offer… Laila was being pulled out of class 4 times a week. Nothing. No real progress. So finally the evaluation comes along and yeah….. She has a learning disability. I couldnt be heart broken for something i already knew…. Its when i decided to take her to a neurologist is when my heart broke. He evaluated her and diagnosed my baby with ADHD. I accepted the diagnosis because i seen all the signs… probably was in denial. Lailas is bad once it starts affecting the schooling… I know what you guys are saying DONT DRUG HER UP!!! I am going to tell you all this…. WHAT WOULD YOU DO? Albuterol is a cause of ADHD… Did you know that? NO! But when your child cannot breathe, thats the first thing the doctors pump them with. The side effects of that are crazy, but we still give it to our children. SO I ASK YOU, WHAT WOULD YOU DO? The doctor said you cant have therapy without the meds and you cant have meds without the therapy… So now what? I am not on any drugs, but i can tell you this, i am a hot mess over this. I cry for her. Because kids are cruel…. and nasty.. And other people will not have patience for her. My other children are annoyed by her… Because of her actions due to the ADHD. I explain to them they have to exercise patience with her… Its hard… And my road will be long… I am asking you for understanding…. Understand my situation. And i pray i learn as well……
