i wonder if, God i cant believe i am saying this, but anyways, i wonder if maybe people are doing too much? what i mean is right now i am in the "Adam needs sooooo much therapy, he needs this and that and he needs it now" mode. then i read about families here that are under so much stress trying to juggle all the therapies and school and family and so many things. i see how stressed everyone is and have to wonder if the kids that are getting all this help are just as stressed. adam is doing along ok, slow but sure. i tend to think that if i threw anymore at him he would go into overlaod and burst. it seems like no matter how hard i work to teach/help him learn things and get better at things he is still only learning it at his pace. i guess what i am saying is maybe, just maybe, everyone should stop and take a deep breath and slow down. i understand how important therapies are, dont get me wrong, but i wonder if there might be too much therapy for a child, too much at one time. its a lot to process going to speech and occupational and scouts and buddyball and trying to keep it all sorted in thier little heads. hell, i would go into loverload if it were thrown at me non-stop. it seems like our kids have a real problem here, not enough is bad too much is bad where is the happy medium? i am seriously thinking about making sure that only two things above and beyond school is going at adam at a time. he is in buddyball, and on a waiting list for speech and occupational therapy outside of what he gets at school. i just cant see running him ragged everyday after school for a few hrs, i dont think he would handle it well, and i wonder if out of love some people think that the more they get done asap is what is best when really it may be part of the problem concerning behavior problems. i dont know, i just hate to see all of my dear friends here under so much stress knowing that everything they do is because they love their kids so much they just want to make sure that they are doing everything possible for thier kids. slow down, have fun along the way, and you know what, if little johnny only makes it to one therapy a week, thats ok, that means he spent extra time at home with you having fun and just being a kid with now worries! i know it isnt always that peachy, but i wonder if all the hustle and bustle is just as hard on the kids and maybe it makes things a little harder then they have to be. hugs,

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
