Why I take time to myself everyday




As an Autism parent for almost sixteen years, I can say that it’s a stressful job. I’ve often said that it’s 25/8/366 because of the nature of Autism. 

I want to take a minute and share why it’s so important for me to take time to myself.

For starters, I know that it’s not always easy to physically remove myself from the equation because life has a way of making it so I’m always putting out fires. Plus, finding a sitter for three kids with Autism isn’t an easy task. 

None of the challenges associated with taking time for myself, negate the importance of it. 

As someone who lives in a constant state of hypervigilance, I often feel like I’m on the brink of insanity. There’s so much that goes into parenting a child with Autism and a great deal of it can revolve around constant repetition, managing meltdowns and about a million other things that serve to make life more difficult for my kids.
