Why #Autism Parents sleep when they can

I slept for a couple of hours after dropping the boys off at and feel so much better now. There were a million things I needed to get done this morning, but none of that was going to happen without at least some . This morning’s nap puts me at a total of only four hours of sleep but sometimes I get must less and so I’m grateful for what I can get when I can get it.

Gavin and are both sleeping right now, and that gives me some time to myself to get some writing done.

One of the things that people don’t always understand is that many parents are functioning while chronically sleep deprived. It’s for that reason that many of us have no choice but to sleep when we can, even if it means putting things on the back burner to do it. One cannot be expected to deal with the types of things kids with can bring to the party, without the benefit of a good nights sleep and a clear mind.

Unfortunately, not Autism has the opportunity to steal a nap during the day. It’s important for those of us who can take a nap sometimes never to take that for granted. We all have our crosses to bear, while sleep is a common struggle, there are many more out there as well.
