Take Care of Yourself

You Matter, Too.

I watched a program on TV about the stresses a mother faces when raising a child with special needs, a number of years ago. The one fact that stood out to me from that piece was this. Mothers of special needs children, age faster than the norm.


Why is that? Most parents of special needs children don’t have trouble answering that question. It’s just plain harder, breaks are rare, the worries and stresses are more, and the financial strain is more intense.

So what is one to do? Recognize you cannot do this job alone. Get help in whatever way you can. Make time for yourself and your marriage. It’s a must. The family will benefit. Who will take care of the family if you die young?

A Diamond in the Rough,
