I feel bad about saying this, but I am so frustrated by my son at times. He crashes into me all the time and lately I've felt pretty overwhelmed about this behavior. I woke up depressed today and wanted nothing to do with him. I'm a good mother, I play with and interact with both of my young boys, but lately I've wanted to shut myself into a room and scream. I ask my son questions and he is verbal, but often just perseverates when I ask him questions. I almost feel like I have the opposite sensory disorder. My husband, who thinks he suffered from SID as a child loves to be hugged and squeezed, while i'm more of a kisser. I feel crowded and overwhelmed but i don't want to push my baby away, so I just walk into another room and take a deep breath when he becomes too much for me to bear. I give him a sensory diet daily, but there are some days when he crashes into things more than others and this is when I become most withdrawn. I want to help him channel his energy and he is a sweet boy but I feel lost some days. Any advice?
