[MBYE 9] It Takes A Tribe: Supporting Special Needs Mamas in Crisis

October 29, 2018

This week was a rough one -- my eldest ended up in the PICU for a week with RSV and Parainfluenza. Stressed to the max. It caused me to reflect on how I need to be supported and how others can support special needs parents in need. 

First, special needs mama: Accept the help and ask for it! When people say, "let me know if you need anything," take them up on it. If they come through -- great! If not, oh well. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. 

Here is how others can be helpful to special needs parents in need: 

1) Be present

2) Know you don't have to solve the problem

3) Take things off their plate

4) Don't ask too many questions

5) Be there after the storm
