Parenting With Mental Illness

Parenting With Mental Illness

By Linette Hernandez
My trial and tribulations as a mom of 3. I have mental health issues. My name is Linette. I am 42 years old. I have my 20-year-old who is a high functioning autistic/mental health, my 13-year-old son is autistic/mental health, and last but not least, my 4-year-old princess. I want to create a support group where we can help each other since not everyone can relate or provide advice. It would be amazing to reach others in need while steel fighting for me and mine. Please take a second and support us. We live in a motel looking to become stable. I hope to be your support system.

S2 E43 When your morning doesn’t go as planned.
Every morning I try to wake-up and start my day in a positive way. Which in my home sometimes it can be very hard to accomplish no matter what time I get up. Sometimes I can get out the bed without stank waking up which gives me time to focus on starting my day right. Other times this time is robbed from me since she will wake-up’s early being her little demanding self lol. Another scenario is my two oldest beba and booger may go at it shifting my vibration to a frustrated one. I really dislike starting my days this way since the rest of the day may seem like a struggle for me since the majority of the time I do end up struggling.

April 29, 2022
Live Episode 4-20
During my live show, for some reason, I still can't figure out why I had an episode. I was talking one minute and the next. I was trying not to alarm the listeners or myself so that it wouldn't worsen. I stayed on air to talk myself out of the episode, and I had another one before I was back. It was interesting for me to go through that while on a live podcast that nobody could see, like my YouTube channel.
April 25, 2022

I cover how parenting, mental illness, and triggers alone can be some heavy topics and situations that can cause damage or trauma. Now imagine more than one in a household.
March 26, 2022
Why does SSI have rude representatives?
I touched on some memories that the call triggered. I don't understand why people have to work with mental health or anyone with needs if they have no empathy. Saying you have a heart versus verbally or physically showing it are two different things. I talk about some reasons I have no contact with the woman who gave birth to me. Shop Normee's has a sale going on 10% off $25 or more stop by
March 24, 2022
A work in steps
I had to call SSI more than once, causing stress, and in the second call, I was triggered. I covered how I handled the call and what steps helped me today. During the recording, I also have a panic attack. I talk myself down while recording. I hope this helps anyone.
March 22, 2022
Emotionally Stressed
I woke up feeling emotionally stressed today. I decided to dump it out to have a productive day completing my mini-course. I have to make sure I keep my mental health stable by any means necessary.
March 18, 2022
Triggers and Parenting
Should you be parenting while triggered? What if you don't notice until after your already parenting? There are so many questions and scenarios that can play a part. What matters is if you proceed knowing that you are triggered/stressed or frustrated. Don't forget to support me on all of our platforms, please. We would appreciate any support on any of our platforms. If you want information on me as a coach visit my website at or if you want to check out our press-on nails then visit This episode was recorded on my old platform on March 16, 2022. I am returning to anchor and wanted to make sure I have all of my episodes on this platform.
March 16, 2022
Oh that, moment you realize your better than okay..
I have my moods all over the place since there really is no money for Mary Jane I am not stable and yes I am taking my meds. I almost forgot that I got this and I will make it until the universe reminded me of it and I wanted to hop on so I decided to make it a live show. I wanted to see how it worked and to get over my severe nervousness that decided to take over. The nervousness did not go away but I hope that you enjoy the show. I want to try and go live once a week if my listeners are interested in a topic I am definitely interested in discussing it with you. Shoot me an email, call in whichever method is easier to contact the show or me. The email is or This episode was originally posted on my old platform on March 16, 2022. I had to bring it to my original platform in order to have it as a part of my platform moving forward.

The reason behind life as a single parent with mental illness!
In this episode, I am introducing my children and me. I cover a little bit of all our conditions and a little bit about why I created this page. My situation is unique since normally it’s either the parent has mental health issues or the child but not both. These are the trials and tribulations that I’ve learned from and I’m hoping to help others with. Hoping to create a support group of family so we can help each other and bring awareness to something that I feel is very important and I’m passionate about. Mental health issues, mental health awareness, mental health living that’s all parenting so on and so on.
