How much time do you spend each day worrying about your child with #Autism? 

I’m so overwhelmed by my life sometimes.  There are so many things that I have to juggle and/or balance, each and every day. 

Aside of from the obvious reasons for being overwhelmed, a large part of my day is consumed with worry. I’m not really a worrier by default but when it comes to all the shit that transpires in my life, I’m consumed by worry at times.  

As an parent, I worry about my kids all the time.  I worry about how they’re being treated when I’m not around.  I worry about them being bullied at .  I’m worried that they aren’t happy. I’m worried that my youngest will continue to lose weight because won’t eat. I’m worried that I’m dropping the ball.  

The most haunting worry I have is that I don’t know what would happen to my kids if I died today. 

No parent ever wants to outlive their children but when you’re  a parent, it’s not that cut and dry. 

Everyone says that worrying about the things you have no control over is a waste of time and energy. While in most cases they’re right, when it comes to , there are millions of things to worry about, that most people wouldn’t even think about.  

It’s exhausting.

    • Of course it’s not healthy. You’re absolutely right. The point if the post is to highlight a very, very common problem within the and community.

      It’s one of those things where you just can’t help but worry.

      You’re right and I wish I knew how not to worry so much…
