So I am partly happy but I am a little worried about what they have to say. but I am getting better and the more the days go by the more I improve :bouncing_off_wall:

Living day to day

I have so many frustrations and concerns. I get frustrated most when I go to tell My mother something and I have to tell it from the starting to the end. Or I find somthing that is funny But when I retell it to her she doesn't find it that funny. My mother and brother have fought right there with me. Everyday I struggle and everyday I struggle more. With out them I wouldnot be here.
