  • Get professional help if you feel your support system isn't adequate or if you feel overwhelmed. 

  • Take a break very day, even if it's only 10 minutes alone in the backyard. 

  • Explore community resources and connect yourself with them. 

  • Listen to music. 

  • Learn relaxation techniques. 

  • Regularly attend one or more support groups and education workshops. 

  • Give yourself a treat at least once a month: an ice cream cone....a new shirt or dress....a night out with friends....a flowering plant.
