Lately, I have getting very snappy. My son constantly whines, part of it isn't his fault. He has Autism and things for him must be hard. I find myself getting all worked up the second he starts his whining. I sometimes yell and swear at him. Then I feel bad afterwards because he's not trying to piss me off. I need help people. I haven't ever been so stressed I wanted to hit him. I'm afraid that if I can't cope with my stress, I might do something like that I regret. There is no support groups for me where I live.Answer Question

There are plenty of support groups here on Cafemom. LOTS of moms here have children with autism. Yes, you do need some support. Now here is some hard truth, yelling and cursing at your son is absolutely NOT acceptable. You feel badly for it afterwards because it's wrong. If you think to yourself "this is completely NOT acceptable" it will sink in. Regardless of how frustrated you are, you are responsible for your own actions. This is not a bash, this is from a mama who use to break dishes outside to let out frustration because I didn't know what the hell to do.
