Do you ever find yourself without any energy? Lately, I don’t have the energy to do much of anything.
This past week has caught up with me and I’m running in fumes.
Lizze has been pushing herself all day long, despite my many requests for her to rest.
She has gone through most of the laundry and trust me, that was a chore.
However, now she’s obliterated and literally cannot move. She’s passed out on the couch from both pain and exhaustion. When she gets like this and does this much work, she’s usually down for a couple of days.
I fear that we have that to look forward to this week.
The boys want me to play with them and I just don’t have it today. However, when you are a parent in general and especially when you are a parent to children with #Autism, you often don’t have the luxury of resting when you’re tired.
The show must go on.
I’m going to drag myself up those stairs and play whatever imaginative game my boys cook up.
Then I will fumble my way through cooking a healthy dinner, I’m thinking fish. However, that just seems like so much work. Having said that, baked Cod sounds pretty good. The boys will eat fish sticks and have homemade banana ice cream for desert.
Part of me thinks or rather fears, that my depression is getting the better of me right now.
I need to find a better way of coping with stress. Medication and therapy can only do so much.
Hark, the kids are calling. I think we are going to play some forms of Super Mario Bros 2, with toys. It should be fun and I’ll take some pictures.
Do you ever find yourself completely devoid of energy? How do you handle it?
