Hello all! Kay, check this out: I had my daughter at 15yrs old and two more sons came along by the time I was 18yrs old! (Right around the time I decided I wanted to be a nurse) I never even set foot in a highschool, but I never stopped reading, writing, or LEARNING. Their father and I had our own apt at 16 and 19, he is 33 now and I will be 30, we have grown apart to say the least. (We were together for over 10 years, though--a couple of them good
I got my GED at 23yrs old with NO GED classes, just my own studying. I then went on to CNA school, which I passed with flying colors, I am now enrolled in my 2nd semester in a very challenging ADN program, and I will never give up until I have my Master's in Nursing--so you are not alone, and you can do anything you want if you try hard enough!!!!! I am living proof.
By the way, my kids are great, 14,12, and 10 and PROUD of their mommy! Their father is an alchoholic/addict so we set him loose into the wild where he probably won't make it--but I did the best I could for him and my family. My mother and father were both addicts--I never had the urge to touch the stuff, because I knew I had alot of work to do to make up for the struggles I brought upon myself at such a young age!!!! Take care of yourself, be strong and love yourself and children, everything works out OK in the long run!!!!! Bye! M.
