The attention that my aspergers child requires is overwhelming. For so long I have given him so much and Im exhausted (to say the least). We are not getting much help yet, because the school district hasnt approved him yet for services.
Lately, I've stepped away from him for a break. I've paid more attention to meeting my 1 year olds needs. More attention to my needs and my DH. We need it. But I've also had a disconnect with my Aspie DS. I find myself giving up on him more easily because I don't want to burn myself out again.
How do you reconnect with a child who takes every last bit of energy out of you and still requires *worlds* more energy!
I'm only human!
