Feeling very sad and lost.

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

I just wanted to write a blog this evening about a few things going on in my life right now and it is a very hard decision that i had to do is step down as leader for the Winter Challenge. I started my team 2 years ago and have shared so much with my team and they have been there for me through everything and always supports me. And i want to say thank you to each and everyone of them and hope they understand my decision i made. And my son has type 1 diabetic and he is a 15 year old boy who thinks he knows everything in life already. And doesn't no anything about life yet. He is making straight f's in school and seems like he really doesn't care. He treats me with no respect at all . Last night he even told me he was leaving that i couldn't tell him what to do because i took his cell phone because of his grades so he is really mad at me for this. He also he didn't care about his diabetes he didn't care what his numbers are.And also he isn't talking to me today. So this mother is really heart broken right now. I love my son with all my heart he is my life. No i didn't give birth to him but we adopted him at 3 1/2 months old he was the child i could never have. So that made me so happy when he came into my life. So now he is treating me this way. But one thing i will say no matter how bad he treats me i will always love him forever. And for my weight i do hope that i can stay focused with losing weight and not give up. So going to try my best to stay strong and get through each day as it comes. Thank you for stopping by my post.

    Most of us who have raised teenager have gone through the "I hate you episodes." Our grandson lived with us for a while and he was even worse. But they are all wonderful adults now. Just keep the communication open and keep loving him. They hate boundaries but they really need them. We are here for you.

    Hugs, Linn

    When my children were teenagers, I've had 3 out of 4 tell me that they hate me. They're grown, and they love me. I cried a river of tears. But I also told them that I hoped it was a long and healthy hate. When they asked why, I told them, "Because that means you'll live a long and healthy life" I love you no matter what.

    Raising teenagers is like nailing jello to a tree. There are some disagreements you just won't win. But the battles that are worth fighting for, like his life, controlling his diabetes . . . You can do this! You can stand strong!

    One of my children kept getting grounded around the holidays because he kept skipping school. He actually wondered why! Too bad. This is one disagreement worth fighting for. I won. He graduated.

    You are stronger and more courageous than you know. You can do this!

    Don't give up on him and stay consistent. Check out John Rosemond out. He used to be a child psychologist but soon realized the way our grandparents did things is how we should be parenting now a days. You might come across some tip or advice to help. I shared my story with you on our team so i understand the fits but like I said one day they will thank you and you will get through this. Just keeping loving him.

    I am sorry to lose you as our leader and I have big shoes to fill. Are you planning on still being on the team or even an honorary member so maybe that way you don't feel totally disconnected?

    Things will get better friend, just breathe and take it one day at a time.

    Definitely DON'T give up! I raised 3 boys (not counting spouse) & they were a challenge, but, you ready for it? they all turned out pretty great! Don't give up...basically, ride with it, it'll work out. If they are in trouble, you Have to

    I'm truly sorry to hear that teenage attitude has set in with your son. It does hurt over and over to devote your life and love to a smart mouthed disrespectful little creature. Mine are 14 and 15, so I can empathize. Don't give up being a good mom.
