Isitri “Ish” Modak helps moms overcome overwhelm…
As single mothers it can often seem like we have a million things going on at once. Quite often I have found myself so overwhelmed that I am not even able to function. The feeling that I can't take even ONE. MORE. THING.
I remember a day when everything seemed to collapse on top of me at once and I sat down on the floor of the kitchen and bawled. My body felt like it was under attack. My brain couldn't process anything. I felt frozen.
Have you ever felt like that? Felt like you couldn't do even the smallest thing because you were so overwhelmed.
