I’m Not OK

Taking care of a child with chronic health issues is a full-time job, so where can busy, burdened parents find support?

Heather B. Amos collated the stories in I’m Not “OK” to answer that question. Her goal is to foster a compassionate and nurturing community of caregivers who find strength in numbers and thrive on the honest exchange of information. These stories describe the challenges of parenting special-needs children from the perspective of caregiving fathers, working mothers, siblings, teachers, and special-needs professionals. Through a series of probing interviews, Amos gleans invaluable tips for anyone experiencing the situation firsthand—and offers insights for all those who want to better understand and support these caregivers.
