Dealing with disabled children

Rita - posted on 01/18/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have 2 disabled children but they're medically disabled. I think it's starting to take a toll on me because I seem to be angry all the time and tired. My oldest is 13 and he was born with medical problems as well as my 2 year old. I've named the children's hospital as my second home. I really feel like I want to give up and run away some times, but I love my babies. I'm I wrong for having these feelings sometimes?

You are not wrong for feeling this way sometimes, it is perfectly normal. You are dealing with a lot of stress and heartbreak. Many children's hospitals have psychological/counselling support for families. Have you considered talking to them? Sometimes just having someone to talk to, a shoulder to cry on, can really help relieve these feelings of anger and pain that you are feeling.
