I always imagined motherhood would be beautiful and enjoyable but with my autistic son who also has turrets and adhd I feel like it has left a bitter taste in my mouth. Like sometimes I feel like its not fair. I wanted my kids SOOOOO bad and now that I have them my son has issues that are affecting his daily life.
I know I'm strong enough to handle these things but its just not fair for him and I hate to see him struggle. And I hate these negative feelings I have about being a mom sometimes. Most days I don't even know what to do anymore. Should I punish for bad behavior or let it ride since most ppl say I'm a bad mom for disciplining a special needs 6 year old.
