Something that I think people often underestimate about special needs parenting, is just how exhausting it is.
I can personally attest to how exhausting it is.
In fact, I’m exhausted right now.
Special needs parenting is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It’s all hours of the day and night. Personally, I don’t even remember the last night of uninterrupted sleep we had in our house.
