You have to take care of yourself before you can take of anybody else – that’s what I keep learning
It’s 7: 11 PM on day 663 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself All Bran Flakes for breakfast, watch TV, prepare and publish my Disability of the Day feature, feed myself brown rice and vegetables for lunch, watch some more TV, feed myself boiled vegetables for dinner and brush my teeth once more.
This morning my mother received life-changing news from her doctor which compels me to say to all parents, especially special needs parents, take care of yourself so that you can take care of your kids. Are you taking care of yourself?
I LOVE hearing from you feel free to leave a comment below.
