Do you ever feel like a single mom even when you are married? do you ever feell like you are taking on the entire emotional burden of having a special needs kid or anything else by yourself??? and if you do if you have answered yes to either of these questions how the HELL do you deal with it?Answer Question
You just do. I think it the motherly part in us. I have a son with adhd and another one with autism. My husband works about 60hours a week. I have two part time jobs. And take care of the kids and house. I work out everyday. It's a great stress burner. lol My husband does help. But I do 90% of the work durning the week days. And he does 90% durning the weekend. I work and go to the gym to mentally get away.

We too have a son with severe ADHD and ODD which makes thing extremely trying at times. But we keep reminding ourselves that we're doing the best we can. And I know it's easier said than done, but hang in there. You're doing a great job! Kudos to you!!! And like Ann7227 said, if it's possible, going to the gym, getting together with girlfriends for a bite to eat or a few drinks/maybe a movie, going to a local mall for a few hours or even going to a restaurant and reading a book by yourself are great ideas for getting your "much needed mommy time" because we have to be able to unwind, relax, get and keep ourselves together to be any good to our children. JMO and hope this helps some.
