The Monday after a holiday can be rough for an #Autism

The Monday after a holiday is always a rough one, especially for an Autism family. It’s tough to get everyone moving because they’re still overstimulated from all the weekend excitement.

Thus far, some of us overslept but we are all moving in the right direction.

Emmett’s definitely on edge and doesn’t really want anyone talking to him. He screams when spoken to and that makes communication challenging this morning.

He’ll be fine at school but we still have to survive until then. Lol

The other thing about mornings like this, is it can set the tone for the day and not in a good way. For that matter, it can set the tone for the week as well because it’s a Monday.

I’m going to drop the kids off at school and force myself to go walking on the way back. Exactly 0.00% of me wants to go walking today but that why it’s so important that I do it.

Afterwards, I have to get Gavin to his blood work and then get his IVIG Infusion going.

Pulling everything off without losing my precious sanity isn’t going to be easy but getting through this morning and doing so to a positive outcome, can help hit the reset button for the week.

We are having similar trouble this morning. We have a 12 year old on the spectrum and I myself am also on the spectrum. It’s been a rough morning in our house. Is it Friday yet?
