As a Mum, I know what it is like to wear many hats, with many pressures and responsibilities. We have so much in our job description before we even leave the house.
Throw in, working a job or volunteer activities and still wanting to be everything to everyone and you guessed it - the emotional and physical pain can stop you in your tracks.
Suddenly, everything that you think is so important is relegated to the back seat, while your body cries for help. This was me too. I got to the stage where I couldn’t bear to let my children get too close to me, for the pain that was wreaking havoc in my body – and yet what I really wanted was to be up cuddling, playing, and getting active with my precious little ones.
Are you short-tempered? Do you notice you’re not engaged and present? Do you find it hard even to smile?
