Writing with tear filled eyes

What’s so weird is that he knows how to use the microwave when it comes to chicken nuggets or oatmeal. He simply adds more time if he needs to. Why in the world would a chicken patty be any different?

This is just one of an ever growing list of examples involving Gavin’s increased level of struggle. It’s very concerning and frustrating, if I’m being honest. I very much dislike having to think for other people and that’s what I find myself having to do for Gavin with more and more frequency. It’s really difficult to explain what it feels like to have to micromanage every aspect of your adult child’s life because they are incapable of functioning in an adult capacity.

Putting all that aside for a minute, it’s also absolutely crushing to see your child go through this on any level. It’s heartbreaking to know where this is going and to be powerless to do anything about it.

Yes, I’m frustrated and overwhelmed by Gavin’s struggles. My stress level is through the roof because he’s driving me crazy but I’m also heartbroken and writing this with tear filed eyes because I can’t stand to see him continue to regress. This is a truly awful situation and I wouldn’t wish this on anyone. 😔
