During my first appointment with the doctor, she just said my daughter needed testing through the school, and make a follow up appointment after she got the results.  Well we are going for a PPT tomorrow to get the results and determine special education needs then the following day is the follow up with the doctor.  I am just not really sure what her function is, especially if we already had her tested and evaluated through the school.  Can anyone help me with this?...
Court went as well as I could have hoped.  They did not do 50/50 but 60/40. I get 4 consecutive days, he gets three.  I am sad I will not really get to spend full weekends with him, but at least it will be simple and consistent for them, and the split gives me some advantage in the future if he tries to pull power plays on me.  I am frustrated with my lawyer, because it turns out the GAL was in my favor the whole time, and my lawyer misunderstood her when she said a 3/4...
Thank you for the replies. I know a lot of it is how I choose to view things. I don't see them as just "my" kids, and I support them having a relationship with him, which can be just as strong at 40% of the time. If he has them 50% it changes the amount of input he has into things that affect me directly and I worry, because of how he is he will use his authority, not because it is in the best interest of the kids, but because it will be another way to control my life:...
He currently has three days a week- wich he totally bullied himself into, and although I take responsibility for letting him do that, I think my lawyer should have been more supportive and encouraged me not to give into it. We are going into an early intervention program to try and settle everything once and for all, the only time I was in court was for temporary orders. We had a GAL who I thought was supportive of me, but apparently is recommending a 50/50 split. This...
We are going into court next week to try to resolve our custody case and I am very worried about the outcome. My state is very pro 50/50 custody unless there is an issue of safety. I am afraid he will use this to try to further control my life. For years he could not be bothered to be a parent, unless it was a public event. Even when he moved in with his parents three years ago he would come over to visit with his "stuff", but neglect to spend any time with his kids. ...

I am weighing the pros and cons of various birth control methods and was wondering if this was a legitimate concern.  The copper IUD works by preventing implantation by irritating the lining of the uterus, thereby causing a low grade chronic inflammation.  Some studies show this response actually can work against HPV, but I am curious if it may also have some of the same negative systemic effects of other chronic inflammatory problems. Theoretically it makes sense to me,...
Hi, I would like to join but, honestly, I feel I am dangerously close to my breaking point with my SO. It is so hard and draining and it makes me so sad and angry and I can't be there for my children that need a functional parent and deserve a peaceful home. We have been together for almost 8 yrs and have 3 children together. I also have a son 7 yrs older than our oldest. I am immensely grateful for all my children and I do love my SO, but he has had trouble with...
My son(14) was diagnosed with fibromatosis this summer, which is a rare case of tumors. They are not malignant, but they are not really benign, either. They do not metastasize, but they can act aggressively, spreading and recurring. My son had two tumors, one large one that was removed surgically, and one in his upper hip/pelvic region, which was inoperable. Because of his age, and the location of the tumors, he was not a good canidate for radiation, a common treatment for...
Hi, family dinners have always been important to me as a way to connect with everyone, but lately they have seemed more trouble than there worth. Instead of family closeness, I am getting crying, stress, yelling... There are 6 of us in the family, me, dp, ds-13, dd-5, dd-3, and ds-6mo. I think the majority of our stress is coming from the girls. To begin, the agreeable one is not very agreeable about food. She is very picky and is always asking for something else,...
