Just one of "those" days...

Truly, I just want to vent and get reassurance...lol. It's been one of "those" days, when everything sets off a meltdown. The food isn't just "right," the store was too noisy, his socks were too tight, the water from the shower set off a screaming fit that lasted for 45 minutes... and I'm exhausted. I know others have days where morning to night are a battle... and today was one of those days. Usually, I can be understanding because I know that he isn't feeling things like most of us do and I know these things truly are painful... but, some days it's just so difficult. Does anyone else just get tired of the endless meltdowns sometimes?

Boy it's nice to know others feel the same way! The meltdowns are the worst...especially since they can totally ruin the day! We have cancelled our plans so many times due to "bad days" and I'm SOOOOO tired of it!! I would just once like to make a plan to do something fun and know without a doubt that we will be doing it. Today we planned to go swimming in the afternoon. The meltdowns lasted so long that I finally made my son take a nap (not very willingly but it did work today) so we did not get to go swimming. I really feel bad for my daughter since she misses out on the fun things because of his behavior. It's NO WONDER we are all so exhausted and crabby!!!

Yes- & it is so nice to know I am not alone!! I truly feel like I am at times. I am subject to all the poor behavior and meltdowns, Daddy rarely seems to have these to deal with & then wonders why I am in a bad mood! I am so tired of being tired all the time- it is truly exhausting at times, mentally & physically!!

I have so few people who truly understand-if they don't see it first hand or live with it, I honestly feel like people think I am being dramatic.The challenges with everyday things,eating, bathing, etc... I feel so guilty sometimes too because I know his behavior affects the whole family dynamic. I know it affects me and the other boys then feel Mommy's tension. I honestly do try not to favor him but it is really hard.

I completely understand. It is so hard sometimes. And what is frustrating to me is not being able to help me as much as I want. We have therapists that come to our home every week and I feel like we are getting nowhere. The meltdowns just seem to get worse and worse. Like you said, you never know what is going to set them off.
