I have completed my Grad Dip and I'm now (un)officially a nutritionist biggrin.gif  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for me because 3 months ago (about 2 weeks into my final semester) I found out my then DH was cheating on me and had withdrawn 95% of the money out of our account and spend it.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  eexcite.gif

You sounds like a bit of a superwoman to me!!

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.
