A Family Mental Health Update

Give ’em lots of love!

It has been brought to my attention that at least one of you (Shout out to Tamara!!!) want to know what’s up with our family (and our mental health!) So, here you go!

Not having a home is very challenging, especially when it comes to mental health. Child #3 is still taking his pills, but they don’t seem to be as effective as they were. This is sad. His doctor prescribed another medicine because the kiddo was becoming violent again, but all it does is make him dopey. He fell asleep the first two days he took it. He hasn’t taken it since. It’s to relax him, but I think it goes a bit too far.

Child #4 is still working on her schoolwork (this is what happens when you don’t do your schoolwork during the school year!) I feel for her, but cause and effect, child; cause and effect. So, we are together working to finish. Today she pretty much did, though we both want her to bring up her grade in History. Almost done. Yay!

Still working on it!

Child #2 is still waffling. 😔. I’m not sure what she is going to do with her life, but I worry about her. A mother’s job, I guess.

Child #1 is happily living with a friend of hers. She is gainfully employed and happy. So whew!

As for me, I am just trying to keep my head above water. Right now it feels like I’m in the rapids of life. It is not easy, but I still trust that God has a beautiful plan for us. Faith feels like about all I have left.

Thank you for listening to my rant. Any prayers you could offer on our behalf would be most appreciated.

Take care and God bless,
