In the spirit of honesty I need to say that I’m cracking. Gavin is going to be the death of me. I can’t take the.problems.and behaviors. Nothing ever moves forward or gets better. It’s not about giving up it’s about being pushed to the edge of sanity. I can only say that the past 10 years have been grueling and without reprieve.
I’m not complaining about my kids but instead the challenges we face as a family. We rarely get a break. I can’t remember the last time we have been able to sleep at night. Having 3 Autistic children is a statiscal anamoly (spelling). The challenges that are involved are impossible to describe to anyone without an Autistic or child.
I’m so tired anymore and Lizze seems to be getting sicker and sicker. She pushes herself way to far. We have no car now and can’t seem to find the funding to help make the house safer for the boys and more accessible for Lizze.
It’s not easy to watch your family struggling and not be able to do anything about it.

Like you We have 3 ASD boys…. Please dont give up …We have NO family support or strength to draw from . We move forward because we have too . I do understand what you are saying .. everyday is a challenge some huge , some huge X10 ( Im sure you understand that 🙂 ) … My Husband is also on the spectrum … so our house is, at times ….a circus . Try with all your heart to see the things that are positive ( I know you are saying “what…you stupid woman , our lives are in Kaos and you want me to see something Positive ” …. I found I had to see the smiles ( and at times imagine them there ) …. Even when a child is melting down ….try and find one thing about the meltdown that was OK ( It lasted 30 secs shorter ) … I know it sounds silly … but that was all I had and so far it helps me be stronger and not feel like im going backwards …. Please take care ..and never feel alone ..may I just say ….You are doing a much better job than you think you are …… Hugs to you and lizze and your boys
First of all thank you for your support. Sometimes things get beyond overwhelming. Having finacial troubles on top of everything just seems to want to sink the ship. I'm ok now. Thank you for your kind thoughts and words.
