My 18th year old daughter is handicapped born with trisomny 21 Downes Syndrome at birth well last week she starterd a day support program goes Mondays Wednesdays and Thursdays 8 to 12p.m. the van is to pick her up at 7:15 but last 2 mornings various times I get up at 5:10 and her a little after.

I have to wash her up etc she has to eat breakfast mind you she is now on 4 medcations I am the one with the daughter sty on her eye but was an abcess we were at the er most of the day its a lot to do I pack her lunch at night check and make sure her clothes are what I wear other things but with things to do around the apartment I wont to be going to bed at 8:00 or later then 8:30 well that may work for Brittany and not me.

I washed today clothes were piled up got tired we were at the hospital most of the day yesterday if I get in bed early I sometimes and since her eye I know I be laying there worrying go off to sleep at 10 not good I say turn the tv off and tell my boyfriend to I find myself getting upset almost 8:00 I still got something to do I hate to go to bed bone dead tired got to get up that early dont wont to.

I say due to her having seizures in March and having to stop school be home schooled we got out of her going somewhere eveyday and a rountie is hard she may have to do this when school starts so I got to get used to it and she should not stay home unless she has to and just starting to HELP
