I feel like i am sinking and I have no idea how to cope. My son is 12 years old and has ASD. I also have a 9 year old son. I am a single mother.
I have no patience, ever, so find my son hard to handle. Tonight we had dinner at my mums and I ended up leaving with my youngest (my eldest stays at my mums Tuesday to Friday) after my son went off on one. I couldn’t cope and stormed out.
I need help on how to cope but i have no idea where to go for advice.
so sorry you are feeling like this. i can completely understand your situation. i have a 15yr old with an asd and 8 yr old twins with ADHD and I too am a single mum. for a long time I felt like I was sinking every day. i had no idea how to handle normal everyday situations at all. i ended up on anti-depressants and the support I was getting was non existant. i finally realised that only I could help me deal with my kids and basically did a lot of online reading about asd and adhd. this website is a great resource for information. my son had specific things that would set him off (he still does) . I have learned to let a lot of their behaviours slide and pick my battles carefully...if only for my own sanity. What exactly happened before your son lost control?
