Hello my name is Michelle. I'm 23 and I have a 5 year old boy who I love but drives me nuts! I am Bipolar and have generalized anxiety disorder. I have a fiance' who has somehow managed to deal with me for 3 years now and is not my son's father. I feel really bad for my son because I feel he has been given a raw deal by getting me as a mother. He is smart, funny, and handsome yet I loose patients with him very quickly most of the time. My patients has vastly improved since he was born. I still live with my parents which I'm sure doesn't help my rapid cycling mood swings seeing as they know far better than I how to parent my child. Strangly the only person I can't seem to loose it on is my Fiance' since he brings this strange calm over me. That makes me feel like a horrible mother since I can loose it on my son and not my fiance'. I'm sure my child tries to drive me nuts. Everyone else who spends time with him away from me says he's a peach and never acts up or talks back, I don't get it. Oh well, that is way too much information about me.
