Beyond stressed!!!!!

Some days are so hard!!!

We advocate and advocate and it seems like we go around circles

I do pray a lot and that helps!!!

I have to go to work at 1:30 and it is almost 11 and I still don't know (from health care agency) who is getting my son off the bus today

My son has fallen 3 times this week and no one can assist us with an electronic hoyer lift (my son is almost 20 years old and weighs over 150 lbs)

I have called numerous places--and I get the same answer no help-I wish I just had the money to just pay it myself and not have to go through all this

Sometimes I feel like I am failing like a parent --I know I am not but some days I am just beyond stressed

Venting-thanks for listening

I'm so sorry!  I know that must all be so stressful.  I hope the agency figures something out for getting him off the bus today.

Have you tried contacting the Arc in your area to see if they know of any grants or donations that may help you get the lift?

Thank you Joy-I can always talk to yous--it feels like I have to be beyond stressed and like break down before anyone will help us -I know I live in a small county-but this gets beyond crazy sometimes_

I know all of us parents go through this crud and I am praying for all of our children-non of the children or parents anywhere need to go through this unneccesary stress-I know it may help us appreciate what we have--but sometimes just uggghhhh!!!!!

thanks for listening as always Joy

So what happens if they don't find someone?  You just have to miss work?  I hope you have an understanding employer!  This seems to happen so often, they must be grossly understaffed.
