Are you that Mom?Parent?

After watching my son go through cancer treatment for over 3 years, let’s just say, the way I currently parent got a little bit too laid back. Being stuck in fight or flight mode is exhausting. We are almost 2 years off treatment (Dec 17) and holy shit, that’s amazing! Watching my kid fight cancer has forever changed me and my family. The question is, when do I get to go back to being me? I don’t know if I ever will. I keep telling myself that I just need to be the best version of who I am today. In the present day. Situations change, but how I react is my choice.

But, back to the Mom/parent/dad thing. Have you been there/here? How did you feel when treatment was over? Could you just slip back into your life?
