Motivating Mom Elizabeth: Parenting with PTSD

Motivating Mom Elizabeth has overcome some major challenges in her life. It’s a constant struggle, but she is one awesome mom, doing the best she can for her own health and her family.

I discovered that fitness – working out, doing yoga, etc – as well as cleaning up my diet really helped…

It’s so interesting to me to hear stories from different Motivating Moms out there. Elizabeth has a story so different from our past Motivating Moms. She has overcome some challenges and put her health and children first. Regardless of our stories, we are all moms trying to do the best we can.

We’re sharing Elizabeth’s post this week, because PTSD Awareness Day is June 27. Elizabeth’s story is a reminder that all moms fight different battles.

Let’s hear from Motivating Mom Elizabeth!
