I am a mom who is parenting thru a lot in the world of mental and physical health. As I discover more about my children and their health challenges, I am learning more and more about myself. One big takeaway: I am never alone. Connecting with a small group of understanding parents has been my lifeline. In return, I hope to share my journey so that you will feel connected, grounded, and empowered.

Fighting the need for reassurance

I struggle with seeking reassurance constantly. I find it difficult to make my own decisions with out talking to a bunch of people. When someone ignores me or acts cold towards me I over react a lot of the time. It is really difficult living this way. Any advice on how to mitigate the need for assurance? #Anxiety #Support

I Need Some Positive Words ... Feeling a little down ...

What is something positive that you could share with a chick that needs to feel a little more upbeat? I want to get out of this funk so much. Anything POSITIVE or encouraging or motivating is welcome. Or if you need to vent, that's okay, too!
