I am a single mom of one child with delays, I do not feel I am a person anymore, hardly a mom some days. most days I am a caregiver and nothing more

there is no me anymore
my well is on empty most of the time
and the only break I get is sleep
If it was not for my child, I would be wishing for death, just to get some rest

How do I go one like this?

  • Get some help. You need it....Ask you doctor, family, friends, etc....ask someone to sit with your child while you sleep...You are a person. You are a mom doing what she needs to do for her child....that is great. But it sounds like you are on the edge of burnout, and that is not great.

  • You need a good support system. I know you spend a lot of time here, maybe find some autism support groups in your area to find some other moms who are going through some of the same things you are. Good luck (c:
