Am I Talking To Myself?

      3 Comments on Am I Talking To Myself?

Am I talking to myself? I sure feels like it today because no one is listening. I have lost track of how many times I’ve repeated myself today. It’s 9pm and none of the kids are sleeping. Lizze and I were going to have our first date night and its been a disaster. EJ is screaming and I can’t help Lizze because ER and G will not stay in bed.

I don’t know what is going on in this house but clearly it has to stop. It’s 85 degrees here and Gavin is in sweat pants, a tea shirt (long sleeve) and a hoody. He freaks out cause his window is open. We give him the choice, he either strips down or he has to have the window open or fan on. ER’s sleep cycle is completely screwed up. Lizze and I have not had a single night were we have been able to sleep through in years. WE NEED A BREAK. WE NEED HELP. WE NEED SLEEP. I think that about sums up the night so far.

I feel like this all the time. I am constantly repeating myself I should record myself and just hit rewind and play

You're not talking to yourself. others are listening. But you talking is the most important part of the equation. Putting your thoughts down really helps us focus and maintain equilibrium. Keep up the good work, if not for others, than for yourself and those close to you

You are not alone. My son has ADD and ADHD. It seems like this time of year is the absolute worst! The days are so long and the clocks have moved back. He hates that it is still light out at bedtime and begs me to 'make it dark outside.'

On top of that, we've not long since had Easter holidays and now it's half term again. Summer holidays are coming up which further adds to the inconsistencies in routine.

He was up @4AM today and has been completely miserable all day. Hope things have improved for you today! :o)
