The forum seems a bit quiet at this time of night but I’m sure there will be lots of replies for you tomorrow. I’m a single mum too, my son will be 18 very soon and I have brought him up on my own for the past 16 years. It was tough when he was little but now I wonder how those years flew by so quickly.
Is your 6 year old a boy or girl? I’m assuming you have MS, you have my full admiration. I was diagnosed 2 years ago when Jamie was 16 and I am so glad I did not get this cr@ppy illness when he was very young. He doesn’t mine me sleeping when I need to; this must be one of the few households where the adult sleeps more than the teenager :lol: . He’s always saying it’s like living with a very large cat because if he can’t find me he knows I will be curled up asleep somewhere :lol: .
Do you still work as well? Sorry, I know I’m being nosy but it all helps me to understand . I remember when Jamie was young and I used to work part-time, clean the house every day, cook proper dinners every night, play football in the garden every day, bath him, read a bedtime story and then spend the evening doing laundry or more housework or gardening on a fine evening, before collapsing into bed at about 11pm at night. I look back now and think I must have been Wonderwoman :roll:
Do you have any single friends who can pop round in the evenings and keep you company? Or can you chat on-line via facebook or similar? Anything to stop you worrying and feeling sorry for yourself.
By the way, I loved your heading. This site can’t promise any ‘fiends’ but it has certainly had more than it’s fair share of gremlins already
Take care (and stop worrying)
