Welcome to the forum. It sounds like it has been a struggle to adjust to being a mother alongside your own needs. Parenting is so tough and you're still in the stage of getting the hang of things. Is there anything in particular that you're struggling with right now?
Unfortunately our forum caters towards parents of teenagers experiencing mental health difficulties. As your son is 4 months old, our resources and referrals may not be appropriate for you. Do you have any support at the moment? Whether that be family, friends or professional services? We have found this parent and carer's group which might be a helpful service for you depending on where you are located.

I have 2 kids a 19 year old son and an almost-16year old AFAB son. My 16 year old has a diagnosis of Tourette Syndrome but I suspect there maybe FND as well. We are in the process of proper assessment and diagnosis.
We live in southern Tas with my husband, 2 big dogs, and a little cat. We also have our friend and her 2 children living on our property with us as we are her registered carers. It's a lot.

Hi @Wonder-and-Woe ,
Welcome to the forums! Thank you for sharing a little about yourself with the ReachOut community.
It sure does sound like it can be a lot!
Do you make time for self-care so that you can better manage everything? Say, meditation, going for walks, exercise?
See you around on the forums!

It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
