30 Days of MD: Be Kind to Yourself for Your Mental Health’s Sake
In this 30 Days of MD story, Sarah Bennett writes about how having MD affects her mental health. She opens up about feeling burdensome, managing parenthood, and giving herself grace.
Here’s an excerpt: “I think we have to be our own counselors too and simply be nice to ourselves! We have a unique journey, unlike so many others. It’s important we learn to embrace what we do have and not what we don’t. The struggles actually make us more humble, caring, and empathetic to others. This is a super-human power.”
Do you have any takeaways from Sarah’s story? Do you have any strategies or tips for managing your mental health?
