I'm new to this particular forum. I'm a single mom to DS age 10. DS is an aspie and also has ADHD, Sensory Processing disorder and motor development disorder. His dad is out of the picture so I'm doing everything myself.
I have really lost control over house work during the last 8 months. DS had to leave school due to extreme anxiety and was home schooled. He is now in special ed. and I can breathe a little better. I have been under extreme stress for years and burned my candle in both ends. I now suffer from burn out and depression. I'm exhausted and just getting healthy dinner on the table takes a ton of effort.
While I'm trying to be gentle to myself and getting a lot of rest, I do acknowledge the fact that the state of our home is making me more stressed out. I feel like I've have lost control. Thinking about it makes me feel frightened and incompetent. I know that I need to take small steps to gain back control and I could really do with some cheering.
Thanks for reading!
