Since this whole autism thing came about I suddenly have this MASSIVE respect for parents of children with special needs. In fact, can we like have a group hug and a little cry?? Ha ha.
Seriously though, how do they do it? Silas is high functioning and I’m hanging on by a thread today. How do you all do it?? What’s your secret? Can we hold eachother?
Silas was Ragey McRagerson today. Diving head first from his knees into the floor. It looks…well…it looks absolutely disgusting to me. I hate it with all of my heart. Holding your child back while they desperately try to hurt themselves is something that no parent wants to have to do. It’s just…ugh. It’s sad, it’s scary, it’s hard, it’s sickening…it’s everything. All he wants is to shash his head as hard as he can. Sometimes he does it into corners. UGH
At any rate. Today was hard. So if you wanna use your jedi powers and send me some patience and whatever else you can send…feel free. I’m going to go relax in the shower 🙂
