lisa like you i have learning disabilitiies but i am a 59 year old woman trying to return to school . you sound like you know what you want in life and that is to provide a good example for your children. I sincerely wish there were more parents like you that weren't afraid to raise yyour children and go after your degree at the same time. my son is grown so i am free to go to school and i have decided to do it online so i can be here for my disabled boyfriend . sure he works outside the home but but he can barely read and can't not do math. unfortunately neither am i good in math.i sincerely hope you have the opportuniy to become a nurse as you wish to be. with the deetemination that show in your video you should make an excellent nurse.

What an amazing story, Lisa! Being able to face the challenge of having a learning disability head on and wanting to lead your children by example is wonderful. We need more parents in the world like you. Congratulations on your success so far and good luck in your future endeavor to become an RN. Kim (Brumback) Hunter

Awesome Lisa! I am very proud of you, and you did a wonderful job on this video! You're right, children learn mostly by what they see. You, their parent have the most important job you already have, you are their most important teacher, and by the sounds of it YOU ARE DOING A GREAT JOB!
Good luck on this, your education, and everything else!

Hey Lisa, I know you can do it! Its not going to be easy with all the studying that has to be done. Just tell your kids to be patient with you and when this is all over, you will be the best nurse in the universe! We definitely need good nurses, we need medical personal that has the patience enough to stop and listen to their patients and they will actually find out what their problem is a hell of lot better. LISA , YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

I, too, have a learning disability (I talk about it in my video, too). Medications only made my issue WORSE. I had no choice but to research alternative treatments. I hope everything works out for you!
