18. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
The safety announcement on flights tells you as a parent to put on your own oxygen mask before putting one on your child. As a parent or carer it isn’t that easy. When you are looking after a child with additional needs it is hard to take time out for yourself. I find that when I do manage to take time out for me that it reinvigorates me and I return home ready to take on all the challenges. Don’t feel guilty about looking after yourself too.
