As a woman, you know you’re smart, but right now you’re not feeling that way.
If you were so smart, you wouldn’t have this problem, right? Still, you’ve done well in life – and generally speaking you make s**t happen. You try to stay SO organized.
You’re run ragged but deep down you feel like you need to stay busy… productive, right?
Otherwise, you’d have to listen to the negative chatter and worry in your head.
You couldn’t love your kids any more, but it’s humiliating to be in this predicament, and you harbour a ton of guilt and shame.
Sure there are other Moms to talk to, but they either have “perfect typical children” and they just don’t get it, or they’ve got problems just like yours. Either way it leaves you feeling “less than.”
What’s wrong with this picture!!
Why is nothing working?
Why are you running from problem to problem, sick with worry and stressed to the max??
You’ve read everything out there, and you’re in every autism FB group. It’s great to support one another, but it can be overwhelming.
You have even looked into alternative medicine.
Sound familiar? I’m not psychic. I’ve been exactly where you are, Sister, and I am here to say you are NOT alone.
