my son has severe brain damage due to complications due ot lack of oxygen as a premature baby. i am on my own with him and i never get a break. he's 4 years old now and is not able to walk. his mental developmental age is between 12 to 18 months. i'm just feeling so alone and worn out. i love him but sometimes it strips me of everything i have. i don't have family who would be happy to care for him much. i know no one wil really be able to answer but what can i do?
i have other children who i believe are not getting the attention they need too. i can't deal with them and him. it's just impossible. literally impossible. any ideas please? i can't do this to them either. they're good chidlren and they deserve a mother who can give them the attention they need. i can't even look over their homework. i just wish i could do more. i get so angry all the time too. ideas on how to do anything in this situation?

Before I offer anything, may I say your special? It takes a lot of courage to share like you have. The key to sharing is to share as if your life depends on it because it does. There is simply no answer sweetie. I also have anoxic brain injury due to overdose in hospital and lack of oxygen. I know you are strong or you wouldn't have the courage to share with us. Sometimes things just suck! Get up tomorrow and know that you are the best. Forgive yourself for being human. Hang in and hang on. I am here if you just need a Cafe mom buddy.
