i hope u dont mind me sharing my story..i still have a chance to finish high school(senior year) i was a great student..getting good grades and everything...then i found out i was pregnant ..4 months before i graduated i stopped going and that was the biggest mistake i ever did..i was always tired and could barely concentrate on things...very unlike me..my favorite subject was always english then my english teacher told me i was going to fail because i didnt finish my report in the time she wanted us to. well at the end of the year when i went back to return my books i talked to my chief(i was in jrotc for airforce and captain of a riffle team) well he told me he talked to my english teacher and she was never going to fail me she just lied to scare me.. i wanna go back so bad but in the same way im stuck because ill be leaving my son for 6 hours a day he wont even be 3 months when/if i go..i want the best for him and me and any future kids.i dont get any encourgment from anyone here..not from friends or family and it hurts me.

Sounds like you have a support group of adults back at school & I think it is important that you go back. You sound like you were an accomplished student so getting back to it won't be hard. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to go back. I know it will be difficult leaving Dylan behind BUT it will be worth it in the end. You can do this sweetie!!!!

I think you should definately go back to school ~ For you! You sound really smart and it will be an acomplishment you wont ever regret.

As far as leaving Dylan at a young age, It is not easy sweetie but you can do it! When my youngest son Kyle was born I was pretty much a single mom by then. I had to go to work, I had no choice, it was hard but I had to go to work to support my family, to take care of us. Kyle was only 2 days old when I went back. You just make every minute that you are with your son count. My Kyle is now 11 years old and he has enough self esteem for 300 kids!

I am sorry you are not getting the support you need from your family. Astrid said it right, lean on the teachers and the people that do care.

YOU CAN DO IT!!! And we are all right here behind you.
