I Thought I Could Do It All
I Thought I Could Do It All

Hi Dr. Laura,

I just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how you've helped me. I have worked very hard to get where I am. I went to school many years and did without the finer things so that I could finish. I am also very proud of what I do for a living.

I got married after I graduated. After 4 years of marriage, we decided to have a child. This is about the time I started listening to you. I was highly offended about the working mom thing and told myself you were ridiculous. At the time, I felt like I could go to every school function or party and when I had to stay the night at the hospital, that was good father/daughter time.

Working 70hrs a week and having so many people depend on you really got to me. I was miserable, unhappy, and so tired! One day on your show, you said something about if you didn't like where you were in life, change it! So simple.  

Fast forward, I found a hospital close that had the hours I wanted. I negotiated a great contract and gave my notice. I am my daughter's mom again and I'm so in love with my husband. I am sweet, happy, and cook supper every night. I can honestly say, I've never been happier! Thank you so much!
