Hi! I am a full-time college student, and once you put all of my jobs together, a full-time worker, as well. I am striving for perfect grades so that I can get into med school. My ex is a stupid jerk (as are most, I suppose) and takes our son only every other weekend (assuming he is not on vacation with the money he whines about not being able to afford for child support). Anyhow, my child has been kicked out of daycare for being sick. Doc says it's a virus that has to pass. I have missed school/work for 6 days now, and am feeling so discouraged. I have no family here to help out, and my friends have children of their own and do not want to take a sick child in. Is it possible to have a child and ever make anything of your life outside of motherhood? I want to hear from women that do it/have done it!! Please inspire me/give me hope my dreams are not impossible!
