First of all, this isn't a troll.
I am so sick of my 3 1/2 year old special needs child. I honestly resent her so much. She comes near me and I cringe and want to get away from her. She doesn't listen (don't tell me it is typical for the age, cause I have taken care of other kids and it isn't to the extreme she is) and is constantly getting into something. Whether it be a drawer, cupboard, my purse or diaper bag. If it isn't getting into something she is climbing something or pulling on the blinds (I live in an apartment so I can't take them down or replace them). I can't even pee without her doing something!!! She won't/can't sleep in her own bed (crib) and has literally cried for 6 hours non stop (per her dr.s orders) and would have kept going if I didn't give in and get her. I haven't had a break since she was born and won't be getting one for awhile. I have thought about putting her up for adoption (con't)

In Georgia there is an organization called "Avita" if you apply for their family support, you can get respite services. (and they will pay for that respite) It sounds like you really need some respite!! There is also a nation wide organization called "ARC". They may be able to help you find special needs respite in your area. You can also enroll her in school. This won't help you much right now since summer is coming up, but since she is special needs, she can start school at three (at least in Georgia!) Did you receive services from Babies-can't-wait, or any other birth-3 program?
You can email me, VickiLee30533@hotmail.com, and I will do my best to help you find the help and support that you need. I have a special needs child. My DD is 7 years old but developmentally 8-12 months old. I understand your frustration.
