Mission Control

Today at Support for Special Needs:
There's something special needs parents might not tell you, although if you love us, you probably already know. We're exhausted, physically and emotionally, by the hard days, by the times when things fall apart and when our kids reach for the stars and fall to earth with a crash. But the good days, the ones where the successes outnumber the failures and there are more smiles than tears? Those days are exhausting as well. Even the successful days take a toll on us and require us to dig deeper wells than we might always be able to sustain.

As a mother of 3 boys with autism, I agree. Even the best of days can be so emotionally draining that I feel like I'm sleepwalking, blending all the days together in a daily mass of routines.
