There is one thing that really struck home to me that I learned this term in my classes... No matter what, always make sure to take the time to take care of yourself. This concept had always gone in one ear and out the other being a single mom, working, and now going to school full time for nursing (I did have to quit my job). With 2-1/2 terms left, feeling overwhelmed and stressed, one of my instructors pulled me aside during a study group to remind me how very important this is. This time, I took the message to heart, and I'm so glad I did.
I know it's not easy, especially with a special needs child, but you have to take care of yourself in order to be there for your children. We are all here to support you, so don't be afraid to ask. You can email me too whenever you like.
Have you created your sparkpage yet? It's a great way for us to stay in touch with you and offer encouragement.
