These are confusing times!
Raising kids is already a tough job, but by yourself is more than challenging, it is exhausting. You find your kids sleeping on the floor while you clean, piling in your bed so they are not alone, or even being angry more often, all because they are confused with only one parent available. You don’t want to have an emotional disconnect with your family. You want to build a stronger and better family through a healthy environment, but military families have different dynamics than your civilian friends. Finding a cohesive flow to the daily grind is not for the average ‘joe.’ The family must be resilient and have a tough skin as a military family…so you tell yourself or your children, but all you want to do is scream.
Sometimes the daily grind takes a toll on you, let alone if there is added issues to the mix, such as Autism, behavioral issues, and emotional issues, to name a few. Just when you think nothing else can complicate things, you start getting into the military healthcare system. This does not help the situation at all.
Even hoping that there would be help to navigate through the military healthcare system, you are now exhausted going thru the paperwork or red tape of the healthcare system with Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) or the Extended Care Health Option (ECHO) program. Even the most savvy person will have difficulty with so many things to think about and accomplish to get help needed.
Let us help you with your family dynamics and assist you with navigating through the military healthcare system.
