Do you ever feel overwhelmed, stressed, bitter and resentful at doing the mother thing?

When your kids act up or have a meltdown and you have only had 2 hours of sleep, how does that make you feel?

I know for me that when I don't practice self-care, that's when the stress and overwhelm come in. 

Today we are talking about the importance of self-care when raising a child with a disability.

If we don't take care of ourselves and treat us with love, we may not be healthy enough to really take care of our kids for as long as we want.

We think that getting our nails done or going out with a girlfriend or spending that extra money on a gym is selfish when in reality, it feeds us the fuel we need to be the best moms we can be.

I am still learning this myself and have a ways to go.
