One of the factors that helped me recover was seeing a woman with my symptoms on TV explaining how you could overcome a variety of nervous illnesses with a programme called Recovery Inc. I immediately sent away for the books but could not read them until last night. Thankfully they have a website and wonderful online meetings so I learned the tools there. This morning I realised that for many people the training in recovery tools is something they don't need because their parents taught them those techniques as a matter of course as children. My parents did not know them and they did the best they could with what they had. I realised that I can now help my daughters since I have the tools. WOW finally I feel a good enough mother. I never realised I had so much doubt about being a parent but it is great to know no matter how old I get I can still learn and I can evolve.
So today acknowledge your successes, praise yourself and remember everything will be fine if you let it be.
