It's hard being a mom, and a single mom at that. What has been your biggest struggle so far?

if they are 10 times worse then I was a saint. They are pretty good kids. One of 3 gives me attitude but that's the worse I get.

Cecilia,

I've heard teenagers are the hardest to raise, course I remember how I acted when I was a teenager too! They say your kids are always ten times worse then you were and I believe it! Karma comes around, good or bad!

My daughter has add and adhd, so she is hyper all the time! It wears you out, but thankfully my protein shakes and healthy diet keep me awake lol. Once I had my oldest daughter I felt old, now I'm able to keep up again, thank goodness!

Raven,

I'm sorry to hear that, that's got to be tough. I understand parts of it though, people automatically think that children need junk food but what they don't understand is that is what makes them unhealthy in the first place. When I was a kid my dad, my sister and myself would go to the grocery store and buy tons and tons of junk food and it would be gone that weekend! Now I have heart problems because there's so much fat around my heart because of it.

I was irradiated in graduate school. As a result, my daughter has something called immunoglobulin hyperreactivity III which is a fancy way of saying she's allergic to everything. I have serious liver issues. We follow a very strict diet. This has been incredibly hard for us. People seem just driven to give her ice cream, pizza, bread, food dies, all kinds of crap. They seem to think I am judging them if I want her restricted to fruits, veg, nuts, seeds, meats, fish, oils, nonglutinous grains etc. What we are all supposed to eat. They are not there for the anaphalaxis, the trips to the immunologist, the nights writhing on the bathroom floor. Yet, somehow many people even our extended family, believe she "deserves" junk food, even if it might kill her. I recently sent her off to school, and she's maintaining her own diet now, and won't drink and smoke. I'm incredibly proud, but it's been a long hard war.

When I was younger, being patient with them. As I'm older, energy level. Whew they wear me out.

I have two sets, one set is teenaged the other set baby and toddler. Which is why I have two answers.
