On a good day, parenting will test the integrity of your character. On a bad day, parenting will test your will to live. Parenting children with trauma histories will cause you to test the integrity of everything and everyone you thought you knew, for the rest of your life.

Stress: Portrait of a killer

Available for instant online viewing on Netflix or vguide (and a host of other sites - just do a search), Stress:Portrait of a Killer by National Geographic.

A must view for those of us living with high levels of stress every day.

A segment of the video includes research of stress on moms with special needs children. Ladies, six months of prolonged, extreme stress like that which we endure raising our kids takes six YEARS from our life.

Moms, please watch it.

Orlando folks, I will try to have a copy of it available even if it means I have to route it through my laptop to a TV.

I watched that program a while back.

I guess I'm so stressed out I barely remember it!

Certainly I feel as if years have been taken off my life due to the pressure cooker we've been living in.

((((HUGS))) Found your blog from your comment to Corey on her post re: depression.


Although, I don't currently 'live' in RAD hell...I did. And it sucks. Still sucks. Still hurts. Still everything.

Try to take care of you!! Seriously....just YOU. Take a moment. Just one moment out of your day for you. Then double it the next. it is hard. I know...it is damn hard. But somehow, you have got to get thru this.

((((HUGS))))) I soooo know what you are going through.
