Episode 260: Down Syndrome and Prioritizing Your Own Mental and Physical Health with Jill Hodges

Today my guest is my good friend, Jill Hodges. Jill is a Wonderwoman! On the episode, I share my first impression of Jill and she shares how she stood me up on our first lunch date:) Jill is a mom of three, and her oldest daughter has Down Syndrome. We talk about finding out about her daughter’s diagnosis, how she decided to have more kids when she felt overwhelmed, how things had to get worse with her health before they could get better, and so much more. Jill is truly extraordinary, and I love to see how hard-fought her awesomeness has been. Enjoy!
