Another huge change has happened and I have a new job role with my students. I am now head mod in one of the groups I am in and I am happy with what I do. It really took a lot of hard work and trust for me to get where I am. At times it can be a bit much but in the end I think of it as fun. There is a lot more to it than what people think to keep things organized, but having OCD makes it a whole lot easier for me.
Other than that life here is great. I still hug my kids everyday and look at them and know that they are the reason I live and breathe. They have NEVER overwhelmed me, caused me to feel like I couldnt handle being a mom, or made me wish that for one second I could take any of it away. Sometimes things get hard especially when you are a single mom, people look down on you and think you cant handle anything. They critize your every move, they think that you cant be a good parent and be a single parent. As I said before 3 of my sons have some issues. This IS NOT an excuse for anything. I still correct them for their behavior, I still expect them to act in a normal manner and follow my instructions. Is it easy to raise 4 sons on my own 2 of whom have ADHD and ODD hell no. Kids with ODD are pre determined to have trouble with the law, school, functionality, and many other problems......do I consider this something I am GOING to happen. Not if I can help it. I always TALK to my boys, remind them what is right and wrong. Have they ever been wrong or done wrong, yes. Was I there where they were to prevent it? No, I cant be in 4 places at once, where yet again in some peoples eyes this makes me a bad mom. So I guess you can judge me a bad mom if you want to I dont really care. I know that I am not. Bad moms, dont love their kids, abandon their kids, abuse them, kill them, leave them, hate them, and many other things I would NEVER do to my kids, not for anything in this world.

He finally pin pointed a huge part of my problem. I have serious insomnia, which in turn kicks off the migraines. So he gave me a new med which literally helps me sleep. I actually had 2 weeks of no migraines and was going to call and let him know.
The night before I had a weird numb feeling in my left arm and wrist. You know that feeling you get when a part of your body has fallen asleep or has lost circulation? It felt like that. Well mine never has come back. The day I called I spoke to my family doc because now my pinky was numb, and so was my ring finger. He said call your neurologist.
I did, spoke to a nurse and said I have good news and I have bad news. I said the good news is I havent had a headache in 2 weeks. She said and the bad news. I said my family doc said I should call and I went on to explain why. She said she would let my doctor know and then call me back.
I spoke too soon on all counts. 2 days later I got 2 migraines. Now every finger but my thumb is numb in my left hand, and I am starting to lose sensation in the palm of my hand. She called me back monday and said Dr. Later wants to see you now not in 3 months. So I have to see him next week.
I dont really think Im concerned, just wondering if its an easy simple solution that can be answered and taken care of simply.
