One of the biggest worries that some people with chronic illness have is this: “can I still be a good parent if I’m sick?”
The answer is yes. There are lots of great parents with chronic illness out there. See, parenting is challenging. Everyone knows it. Parenting with chronic illness? Even harder.
When I was offered a chance to receive and review a copy of How to Be a Good Mommy When You’re Sick: A Guide to Motherhood with Chronic Illness by Emily Graves, I obviously took that opportunity. I’ve seen Emily Graves around the blogosphere, like over on her website Chronic Illness and Motherhood and over on this interview with Being Fibro Mom. The chronic illness community is small, so you might know or know of her as well.
