At least they didn't put that you "Struggle with obsitiy" in your permenat chart on EVERY page!!!!! (like they did with me when I had Keighely!!!)

You are one of the most amzing women I have ever met...I would leave your apartment after hanging out with you for an afternoon feeling so blessed that you were part of my life... feeling empowered and suddenly capable of whatever...you are an encouragement to so many...so many with infertiity stuff, IVF stuff, triplet stuff, parenting stuff...and even epilpsey stuff... Henri Nounen (now-en) has a book called the Wounded Healer...basically says that we are not perfect...but out of our "wounds" whatever they are we can still be effective ministers of the Gospel... and trust me Tess what ever your "issues" may be you are effective....whatever/however you feel you have made a HUGE impact in this world for Christ... and mc wouldn't trade you in for the world..(I've seen the anual v-day banners!!! I've seen the look of awe and gratitude in his eyes when he catches your eye from across the room...I've witnessed the love and affection and adoration he has for you and your four kiddos...i've seen him dog tired and still find joy in his family and wife!!!!)

I love you and i am glad that you chose to stay on top today...I am so proud of you!!!!


Your posts always touch my heart. You are an amazing woman, wife and mother. MC and the gang are unbelievably blessed to have you in their lives. I have a dear friend who just gave birth to her first child this week...and was diagnosed with epilepsy while pregnant with him. She has been really struggling with a lot of the feelings you expressed here. I'm off to refer her to your blog. I think you are just the beacon her newly darkened world needs. Thank you again for sharing yourself with us.


Awwww, Tess. I'm sorry the day was such a struggle. However, you did such a powerful thing. You didn't relinquish your power to someone else. Doctors are experts at making us the lowly paitent feel less. Because they "seem" all knowing, all powerful.

I admire the way you didn't just hand it over, you took the hit and kept on going. Some days, that's the strongest most courageous thing a woman can do.


T - what an awful day. It started out with so much promise. I'm grateful you shared it. I don't think I'm the only one to say how much I admire you. You showed such courage and strength when such a culmination of disappointments nibbled away at you. You did NOT give in and you persevered. That is what sets you apart and shows your charm and character. The day is over, and a new one has started. Try the new medication, some side effects don't affect everyone and it may work for you. If it doesn't - you can keep asking for something else that balances what you want. You never know. I wish I could give you a hug - in fact here is one (XO). You are wonderful, simply wonderful.

Remember great love and great achievements involve great risk.

Your last two blogs have been amazing, sweetheart. Your pro-active choices send a message of encouragement, hope, attitude, and never-say-die! Am so proud of you and love you to bits.

And now you know why I am so proud of you and love you so much.
Hugs and kisses,Dad


It's up to Charles to decide what he thinks best for him. Looks like he made his decision. I don't think the kids would change either.


Hummm, I am sure glad we didn't have a phone conversation earlier today! HA HA.

I can tell you this: if MC would have been better off with his previous wife then I WILL TAKE YOU AS MY WIFE IN AN INSTANT. And I won't even ask for a bj! However, I don't think he will agree to giving you to me.

Love charmaine


Oh Tess, I am sorry you are hurting. You have a wonderful family and husband...I've always envyd your life.

Have you tried Lamictal? I'm on that, but it acts as a mood stabilizer for me.

miss talking to you, lady...always around on email.
God bless


You wrote you'd wanted it to be more powerful - but it WAS. It was a very powerful day. I think you lived your day in a very graceful way, despite some challenges that would have left others in a rage or in a funk.

One day, I want you to demand to see that letter and to see who wrote it. And then for you to decide whether it is worth challenging them on their unsolicited interference or not. But you should know who this person is, this person who has judged you without understanding who you are and what you stand for each day.

I want to grow up to be like you some day. Full of grace.

Once again, you will never know how much I admire you and respect you.
Love your sis xo


Way to go, Tess! I hope the new meds will help. I admire your courage and perseverance, and your writing.
