Parenting with Chronic Illness

Parenting is inherently challenging, but when you are parenting with a chronic illness it presents additional unique challenges. The Bateman Horne Center hosted an important and collaborative discussion on Parenting with a Chronic Illness. This joint panel discussion was presented in collaboration with the local chapter of the National MS Society and the the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association.


In this education meeting, a panel of mothers discuss how they manage the day to day challenges they face while parenting with chronic illness. The panel is made up of experienced mothers living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome MC/CFS), and Fibromyalgia (FM). They share their responses and insights openly and honestly. We hope that it will help many mothers and fathers with invisible illnesses, such as Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.



The Bateman Horne Center holds monthly education meetings on the first Wednesday of each month. Patients in the Salt Lake City area are invited to attend in person, and the sessions are broadcast via YouTube live stream, making them available to all. After the education meeting takes place, all recordings are archived here on the BHC blog and on the BHC YouTube channel.
