Yesterday I hosted my monthly Doctor Mom group. I love these ladies! It's so easy to look at others and think they have a perfect life.
But EVERYONE is dealing with something. Take my group for example.
There are moms who have kids with diabetes, crohns, OCD, autism, anxiety issues. Some kids have been the the psych ward. Some young adult kids have been in DKA...several times in the past year.
Some kids have threatened suicide.
Such is the life of a Doctor Mom, right?
But some moms have kids who are doing amazing! One mom in particular has a type 1 teen and was raving about how fabulous her daughter is doing.
Of course this mom still has struggles because her husband just lost his job.
If you're struggling today, please remember that no one has a perfect life. Take each day as it comes and count your blessings! They are there....somewhere.
I think that's one great thing about being a Doctor Mom: We don't take the little things for granted.
For example, Matthew slept in a little this morning. When I checked on him and he rolled over in bed, I was so thankful!
Only Doctor Moms fully appreciate the simple gift of life.
