I think I know the answer to this but I’m gonna ask the question anyway.
Do you ever get to the point with all that special needs parenting entails, that you feel like you’re going to lose your mind?
I mean honestly, with all the screaming, overstimulation and meltdowns, do you ever feel like you’re going to just lose it?
I sure as hell do, especially on days like today.
I think that it’s pretty normal to feel this way. I also think it’s important to share these feeling so that you and everyone else that is experiencing these feelings, know that they aren’t alone.

you're not alone. feel like that sometimes too.
Guess that's when God's working on me to try and stretch, mold, flex me into who I need to be. I am not the most patient person and that is really tested during those moments. My weaknesses are exposed, but not for me to feel ashamed of, or upset over the fact that I'm human and vulnerable…for me to use that vulnerability, to mold it to work for beneficial benefit. I do find that if I make it thru a meltdown with my insanity in-check that the next one is a little easier.
I do get a break though, and I only have one child. I think your situation is definitely more intense,… but I think that you are doing a much better job of handling it than you give yourself credit for.
