I have completed my Grad Dip and I'm now (un)officially a nutritionist This is such an amazing moment for me because 3 months ago (about 2 weeks into my final semester) I found out my then DH was cheating on me and had withdrawn 95% of the money out of our account and spend it. I asked him to leave. Just before all this, DS7 started complaining of headaches and we discovered his sight was degenerating. And now somehow I managed to hold it together to sit my exams and I have finished!! Now to look forward to graduating in March and hoping with all fingers and toes crossed that I get into Dietetics and can continue pursuing my dream

Awesome, awesome effort OP.
You sounds like a bit of a superwoman to me!!
If you have gotten through the last couple of months and survived you can do anything imo.

The term "Supermum" is usually used when talking about a rich, pampered celebrity who never has to lift a finger to do anything menial. I think that when we look up "supermum" in the dictionary there should be a photo of you there. Congratulations and keep pursuing your dream.
