Believe In Yourself.

To the parents that are battling for their child/children with disabilities day in day out, who often are left exhausted leaving little time or energy to care for themselves, increasingly aware of the isolation that begins to suffocate around them.

I’ve never met a strong person with an easy past, whilst we’re left feeling helpless and questioning our ability. Often grappling with ourselves if we’re good enough, or doing good enough.

“The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us but those who win battles we know nothing about.”

In the world of SENHOOD, Strength doesn’t come from what you can do, you do not need experience or a degree in biomedical or genetic science to be the best parent of your ability. You’ll often find you become to have a self taught PHD in your child’s diagnosis and educate professionals themselves. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t, perhaps look at all those tests you’ve watched your daughter or son endure. Comforting a child mid meltdown. Preparing and digesting worst case senarios. Believing you cannot administer medications and injections. You’ve OVERCOME these self doubts because you’re strong. Without even knowing it yet.

I’m one of those Mothers that changes her mindset multiple time’s a day. I go from having a good day, bad day, overwhelming day, too tired day, I’m awesome day, I can’t go on day. And yet every hour passes I still show up and get through my day.

Parents who feel guilty about not doing enough are usually the ones doing everything possible.

A late twenty-something mother of two boys and a profoundly deaf diva of almighty sass. In between splitting spontaneous sibling wars, curiatimg pillow forts and channeling inner superheroes. Mothering Silence documents a brutally honest truth of the trials and tribulations of motherhood. (The toughest hood.) Here you'll find the weekly ramblings of the rollercoaster life of my journey in motherhood. *Please note my style of writing is tongue in cheek.
