My son is 2 and has aspergers but i guess soon i just will have to say autistic soo confusing. But any way. He receives therapy right now thro early intervention. The service coor said oh he's smart and cut his therapy to 1 hr 1x a week. All my sons drs and therapist are furious and i feel like Im at war begging trying to get my son help. This is all so need to me. Im a good mom but i need help. Its exhausting dealing with my son. Just changing his diaper is a process that i have to follow to avoid him physically becoming aggressive and melting down. He has to have a bag of horses whenever we walk in the door (obsessed with horses) again to avoid outburst. Transition and sensory is a huge thing for him and Im trying to learn how he feels and how he thinks. He slapped me today...pointed to where he slapped me and said boo boo u cry baby. Seriously? My husband works all the time which leaves me with our son...dealing with therapy the drs the every day home stuff and today i feel like i have no more fight left. Its horrible i didn't even want to put up a xmas tree i knew my son would just grab and eat it. And according to his therapists i shouldn't say no to him i should get his attention other places. Giving him a chew toy or ignore him when he punches himself or the dog. Its over whelming. Does anyone else deal with this or feel like i do sometimes. I feel like a bad mom i just want to go to bed and put the covers over my head and sleep.
