I am just having a rough day today, and feeling discouraged.........my son has been handicapped since birth and still doesn't have an diagnosis..and is now 5. He is full care as he is unable to crawl, walk, talk, eat ect..... and he has a G-tube for feedings. I am exhausted from all the care he needs and I also have 3 other children...who are not special needs children..but who are 6 and under, the youngest being 4 months old. I am angered because his father has moved 6 hours away and maybe spends 4 hours with him every 3 months, and I get to care for him day in and day out without help from his father at all...including he is not paying his child support. Which as you moms know could really help with these special needs children and special items that my son needs. I am more angry today than usual since I got to clean out.... my son who has major constipation issues....and gets really bad impactions ..and the procedure I have to go through to clean him out is HORRIBLE! I hate doing it and my son cries the whole time ...as I can imagine its not comfortable for him at all to have it done. It is just days like this that his dad was here and I could say ok...I am going out for a few hours and your son needs cleaned out, and see what he says or does! I love my son so don't get me wrong...I am more angry that his dad can just walk away and go through life without helping his son. Am I alone in this or are there other moms in the same situation?
