Raising children while living with a chronic disease
Posted by coryjmclaughlin to Pediatric/Parenting, Mar 2, 2010 10:48am
I'm a stay-at-home mother of two young children (4 & 5) and I am also a woman living with Lupus. At times it is very difficult to be a good mom while living with a chronic disease. I often worry about how it will affect my children to have an ill mother, along with dealing with immense guilt that I can not be a "normal" mother to my children. I'm sure that I am not the only one living with this tough situation, trying to balance my health with the raising of my children, and would love to see a segment devoted to this.
Thank you very much,
