Hey! Thanks for the reply :) I have 3 daughters (so Congrats on your new little one, that will be here very soon!). My daughters are 16, almost 15 and almost 13. My middle daughter has Autism and my youngest (her name is Blaze) is Bi-Polar. We have learned alot as a family concerning Bi-Polar disorder. It has been very difficult. My daughter gets very upset sometimes, and she too can be very impulsive. She used to get very violent and hurt everyone. She tried to stab my oldest daughter in thechest with scissors. It got so bad that we had to put her into a facility for awhile. It is not something any parent should have to do, but she needed more help than we could give. We live in CA and she went to live in Utah for 2 years. They helped her alot, although it is still a very big challenge everyday. I think that is why I can understand your impulsive ways also! LOL But seriously, it is not easy. I urge you to keep trying and even when you don't want to try to talk with those you trust. My daughter has her most difficulties by holding things in...but she is learning. If you look on the front page here on the site, under the discussion area, there are groups listed. Or, if you want a short cut...go to my page and view all my groups and you will see it pop up :) I have always loved music. I sang in bands and in my younger days growing up in Hollywood, I dated only musicians...all those "Hair Metal boyz"! LOL But I had alot of fun. Dated a few famous ones. My favorite band of all time is Aerosmith. I have loved them since I was about 10 yrs. old. My husband and I playfully argue over music and bands...I hate most of what he likes!! Ha....oh well. I am sorry about your Dad. I know how you feel. I lost my best friend to AIDS 5 yrs. ago. He was my friend for about 30 yrs. I have lost 7 friends to AIDS. It is asad, aweful way to go. I know you said your Dad had Cancer...that isn't any better.It is so hard. I have a red ribbon tattooed on my wrist to honor my lost friend. Red ribbons mean alot to me too<3 I like how you are involved with the Spanish church groups, even though you don't speak Spanish. I used to work part time as a teachers assistant at a college. I worked in the E.S.L dept., teaching people to speak English. Most of the students were Hispanic. They knew no English, so I had to learn alot of Spanish quick!!! Ha! But I loved them and they knew it...so they loved me back. They were very kind to me. I got let go because of budget cuts...sigh.Anyway, I am glad you wrote me. And I hope we talk more. What are the names of your twins? I think twins are very cool.Sending a smile...you have a great night too!
From looking at your page, I see you have grown from VERY short hair!! Wow! Good for you. Does it feel weird to have such long hair now compared to before? I felt weird with long hair, as I always wore mine short in recent years...so, getting used to things...although my hair keeps shrinking!! LOL Hang in there...before you know it, you will have beautiful dreads :) You will go through a million stages, some will test your patience...other times, yu will be in love with your crazy, messy hair. I am at almost 18 mos. and it has been a rollercoaster! Did you say you are Bi-Polar? You know we have a Bi-Polar group here? I want tothank you for your very nice reply on the thread, I appreciate it. I wondered what kind of music you like to play...? Take careand keep smillin'.
