Hi Jessica2012,

I hear you - how hard it is juggling kids and life in general.

The fact that you are struggling means that you re human. However, an full check up with your doctor is important, to rule out physical issues and address your mental health (the most the time I feel like not living anymore. I need some help some advice some help. statement).

Scheduling in some ME time is important to maintaining our physical and mental wellbeing. ME time includes time for activities that are must do such as visiting the doctor or dentist and others for relaxation to recharge the batteries e.g. walking, yoga or guided meditation.

At the suggestion of my psychologist, I have using a weekly planner and booking ME time appointment slots into the week, I have been able to include walks around the block in the week. It's one small change but helps a lot. I fill the planner in on Sunday night for the next week.

I found time where I thought there was none :)
