I am sad

I am sad.

Since this last surgery I have a different kid. He is mean and opinionated and ornery. He is sad so much more.

His muscle tone has increased and he can't walk as well. In fact he would prefer to crawl.

I am sick to my tummy.

I can't stop crying.

Who do I take him to? Where do I go? How do I help him? This didn't happen last time

We have an appointment in the morning for a follow up scan. I have an appointment with his braces guy to see if he can help me get in to on of the rehab docs.

I am frustrated.

I feel VERY alone.

The "others" comments are bothering me

I am sad.

I'm so sorry. I'm sick of "others" comments as well. I'm getting ready to post a big thing on Autism so my whole family can tell me I'm smokin crack and my child has no problems. Yeah, whatever. Try living with him.

I hope you get some kind of answers. I wish there was something I could do.

I know the feeling. It's o.k. to be sad. Every day doesn't have to be a happy day. I know...I have three on the spectrum...or whatever you want to call it and so days...it's o.k....to be sad.

I agree. It's okay to be sad. Even a good thing I think. Even so, I wish I could offer you some comfort. I wish I could show up on your doorstep with an armful of chocolate and chick flicks, and take you away from reality for a while. Right now, I don't have any suggestions for you, but I'll think on it. In the meantime, I'll pray for you. Hang in there, and know that you are loved.

I'm so sorry you are feeling down today. I hope you get some good sleep tonight and feel better about things in the morning. Just remember to take one day at a time and be free to feel what you are feeling. You are dealing with a lot, and you are entitled to "bad days". Hang in there and let us know how it all goes.
