"Thanks Penny. It has been a rough year for our family. I have just gone through a week of appointments for my boys. It's hard to not think about it when every appointment  is regarding dmd this week. I am just glad that it is done."

Well here  I am again. Getting frustrated with my son Shaun, lately he has been very moody and not sleeping and does not listen. Probably the age and steroids. Being so patient but it is wearing thin. I think that he is starting to realize that he is different.Then there is Austin my 2 year old. He is so sweet and always smiling. Thankfully he does not have to start steroids anytime soon. Then I will have two moody boys. I'm bad saying all this stuff.I just wish this huge weight on my shoulders…See More

Struggling with emotions I can not hide.

I don't know if I can hold back the tears today.

Well I get to watch your son run and play.

I know I have two special boys

Always happy and smiling

 

All I feel is angry

What makes you think I have the heart for this?

Why have such confidence in me?

I know that I can handle this

I have the strengh I guess

But some days it is hard on me

To watch them always…

Hi Sharon,

No, oral steroids do not cause nose bleeds. Nasal steroids can, but not oral. 

Best, Stephanie

Hi Sharon,

I just watched the Clinical Trials Webinar from Feb. and saw your question, and recognized your name.

Just wanted to wave hello.

Hi Sharon, I actually live in Chicago but grew up in Buffalo.  In fact last summer we took our son Ben and the girls to Crystal Beach for the first time so we weren't too far from you!  We will be returning to Bflo this summer to visit family again.  Ben was just diagnosed a year ago and some days are still overwhelming especially when I start thinking about the future.  I will say that we are in a better place now than when we first heard the words dmd and that this website has been a lifesaver for me.  Please take care and contact me if you ever need to vent.  I find that other dmd families have been such a blessing for us!  Take care!

Hi Sharron, I am so happy you found us here.  We live in Ottawa and go to CHEO and our neurologist keeps us updated in the trails happening around here.  My oldest is 9 and my baby is 4, they were both diagnosed, and myself as a carrier almost three years ago.  Life since then has been full of up and downs.  The kids are happy.  That's the best news.  I am also pregnant with a little baby girl due in June.  I never thought three years ago we would be adding another baby.  Anyway, just wanted to touch base with you, and let you know that there was another mother, with two affected sons ( a poodle, a cat, a hubby, a mortgage and another baby on the way, like I didn't have enough on my plate ) close to you.  An older man with older kids told me that life would return to a new normal eventually, and it has.  And it will with you.  Take care my dear!! Marian

Sharon,

I like how you say that you stay at home while your husband works, like it's not work with 3 kids, especially 2 DMD boys!  Self deprecation, I know it well. Your work as a mother (though unpaid) is valued, especially by your kids (even when they don't always show it). Please remember that .  ;-)

Best regards, Andrea
