No one said parenting would be easy, no one can prepare you for the juggling act that is raising children, add a child with special needs into the mix and it’s a whole new world. Those who know me, know that I am a strong woman who carries a lot on her shoulders. You are talking about the 30 something who enrolled at university while raising a family and working two jobs! Yes, I really was that stupid! Do I regret it? No! Would I have done it slightly differently? Yes! So if you’ve landed on this page, firstly a big heartfelt thank you! I am new to all this, so please bear with me while I find my feet.
So why am I here?
There are many reasons why I feel like I could be good at this blogging thing! I guess loneliness, it’s not easy having to care for a child with special needs. It’s not just the caring but it’s missing out on interactions with friends, nights out, family occasions, as a family we often feel isolated from real life. So, a little bit social is my way of keeping myself in the loop with life, feeling part of something and perhaps feeling that I am not defined by my caring responsibilities.
What Can I Offer?
Somewhere to chat! Someone to talk to when you are sitting alone in your child’s bedroom waiting for them to fall asleep! I want to share stories, ideas, tips & tricks, an online support network where you don’t have to feel so alone.
