Back to Blogging - The First Post I Ever Wrote

My First Post

Posted by Busymomsteph at 5:08 PM July 14, 2009

I have always wanted to be a mom, I was always the one that would rather be holding a baby than playing with my friends. We tried for a while with no luck to get pregnant and the after finally finding a couple of amazing doctors, just when I was ready to give up and accept that I would never have my own children I found out that finally all of the tears, prayers, injections, and meds I was finally going to have what I had been waiting on my whole life.

In May of 1999 I was inducted into this crazy fraternity called motherhood. After many years of hoping, wishing and praying my beautiful little girl made her entrance into this world kicking and screaming something she still hasn't grown out of. This amazing person that surprises me each day. She is funny, infuriating, creative, intelligent, all of these things that I can't believe I helped to create.

In September of 2002 my fate was sealed when my Twins came along and completed our family. They couldn't wait and arrived 2 months early but after only two weeks in the NICU they were able to come home. They are amazing, they fight, laugh, kick and scream at each other but still can't stand to be away from each other either.

My husband teases me all of the time saying that I collect kids like most people collect shoes. I have become the mom that all the kids come to, so now I have 12 co-children that call me NeeNee..I love this family that we have built, it is everything that I have every wished and hoped for.

I decided to start this blog as a way to keep of with all that goes on. My memory has not been very reliable and there are so many things that I want to pass on.

Last week I found out that I most likely have Multiple Sclerosis, I have been going down hill for the last 9 years. I have been to so many doctors and had so many tests and have not been able to find out for sure. I will not know if I finally have the correct diagnosis until I get in with a specialist. It was odd, I feel relieved almost because once we know for sure I will be able to better manage my life. I mostly feel guilty, I don't want my kids to grow up and feel cheated or like I have been a burden to them. My plan is to pull myself up by my bootstraps put on my big girl panties and make the most out of the good days.

When I first started blogging I really just wanted a place to keep up with life in general. I was going through alot health wise and needed an outlet. So here I am a little over a year later. I have gotten on and off the blog wagon several times. I found out I don't have MS which is great, but in the last year, I have found out I have a Pituitary Tumor, Thyroid Tumors, Fybrosistitis on my Eye Muscles and many other random things. I still don't have a difinitive diagnosis. I am trying desperately to live each day and not get bogged down in all of the illnesses.

My kids are still amazing and challenging, they are my world. This year I became a Macaroni Kid Publisher Mom. I love it. I think the one thing I would change about my blogging is defintely getting back on track I am excited about this challenge I think its just what I need to get back to blogging!

Well congrats to you for continuing to put those big girl pants on and taking each step you need to keep being a great mom and keep living your life. I, too, have fought health issues over the last two years and like you, it was one of the inspirations for my blog.
