If you are a busy parent, it isn't always easy to take time out of your day for yourself. Although focusing on your children is crucial, paying attention to your own needs can help you to be more effective. After all, how will you chase after your toddler if your foot is killing you? I used to procrastinate trips to the doctor, until one day when I couldn't ignore my painful foot anymore. I had injured by achilles tendon in a running accident, and I quickly discovered that it was impacting my life. I want every other parent out there to understand how doctors can help them, so that you don't end up sacrificing your own happiness.
