I keep myself busy nowadays especially with my toddler son to avoid thinking and stressing too much about stuff. I cannot please everyone.
My everyday routine now, albeit very rigid, gives me a sense of purpose and accomplishment. With all the complications I’m facing with NF2, at the very least, I have routine tasks as a stay-at-home-mum.
Though my meds can make me feel fuzzy all day, the routine I have keeps me from feeling less of a mother. It helps me through the days. I have the opportunity to bond with my son too.
I’d say it’s like having a timetable. The benefits are it keeps me occupied and lets me plan my time well.
It’s a motivating factor as it allows me to perform the best I can as a mother. And that is something I yearn for. I cannot be the perfect mother every kid has. However I hope to be the best, for my son. ❤️
