So much for my free time...

My kid got suspended for the next 2 days (literally right now) and I have to go pick him up for having a fight again. His autism is just out of control. Plus I get to hear all the details which right now I don't care about. It makes you feel so indifferent and wanna give up after awhile. Of course I care, but I'm just soooo mentally tired of hearing it day after day.

That aside, I swear anytime I get a few minutes to myself, something like this happens. I know its selfish of me, but I'm so sick of never having time to myself to just veg and not have to worry about other people's needs right now. Its always about him or something with my DH.

I'd like some time for me that does involve sacrificing sleep and getting up during pre-dawn hours to get it. Vent over.


to add: This disability is one of the reasons I can't work or do much in my life cuz I always have to be on call to go get him at a moment's notice. Really sux sometimes.

  • You are not selfish. You are trying to remain sane and having "ME" time is the best way.
    Good luck with everything.
