Hello & welcome! I hope I can offer some helpful information that will assist you on this often challenging journey. We all worry; some of us more than others, it's part of the human experience. But when the "worry brain" goes into overdrive, it can get stuck there and feed on itself over and over .... I have personal experience with this, not professional. This is meant to be helpful, but by no means does it replace medical advice. I'd like to share information that I've found beneficial so it may improve your life! I especially want to help parents help their children : ) Please know that counseling is extremely valuable for you and your child too! There are great websites and books.
In addition, life likes to play tricks with us and make things complicated. Sometimes worry is just that. Other times it may be OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). And it seems that when our wiring gets a little crossed, it likes a party meaning it's quite common to deal with multiple conditions including the ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) family.
I am totally new to blogging so be patient with this busy working mom, wife, new grandmom, sister, daughter, friend, neighbor, etc. please. And here is your first tip:
