I'd like to talk to other grandmothers raising their grandchildren. I love my grandchildren to pieces but I have to admit it has challenged me. Most of my family members I'm close to live in another state so I'm cut off from family help. I do have a couples friends who are wonderful and take the children two saturdays a month but the loneliness is getting to me. How are other grandparents dealing with it? It's especially hard when I come down with the flu and the kids still need me to care for them and I'm not getting the rest I need. Please help with suggestions.
