Problem No. 2: A Whole Lot Going On.
I'm sure that anyone with a child that has special needs can tell you that there is a whole lot going on. Max has speech therapy two times per week, he goes to a playgroup on Monday mornings for kids with special needs, he goes to the Deaf Oral School toddler group, (which is over an hour away) once a week and then you can throw in doctor or audiology appointment, and a sign and play group once a month. Whew, just writing it all down wears me out. This is on top of the normal activities in a household, cleaning, paying bills, errands and even though other people talk about this I have yet to experience it, relaxation. I ride the wave of guilt constantly over this whole lot going on. I have guilt for my daughter who is 6. I try and try to have time with just her but it is soooo hard. I didn't get her girl scout patches sewn on when she got them and now some are missing, her little bag that they were supposed to be sewn on was blank for months. I've missed things because Max had an appointment here or there, or I was just so rundown and tired I simply forgot.
Can you Hear Me?
