Hey.........hang in there...........that's so theraputic isn't it?
Anyway........I was a single mother of two small children when I went to LPN school. I'm not saying it wasn't tough......it was.......but.......it was so worth it. I worked 12 hours shifts on the weekend while they were at their dads or my folks. My parents kept them on the weekdays while I was in school, and after school.........I always made sure I sat down and had dinner with them. We would set aside an hour to play, get baths, and read bed time stories. I stayed up late to study. It was rough, no doubt. I used every spare minute between classes to study also. And you know what? I made it. Not only made it, but graduated w/ honors. It was a proud moment for me. And now?
Several years ago I met at wonderful man. We are married. My daughters are now 20 and 15. The oldest one is married now. Just a newly wed since last August. ANd I'm back in school. Only 10 more months to go.
Honey, it was worth it. When I graduated from LPN school, I felt like I had something to offer my children. I wasn't afraid anymore. It's never easy, but do what you have to. Use all of your family's support, friends.......whatever you need to do. Just do it for your child and yourself.
And.......that's my couple of pennies worth.
Best of luck to you!
