Why can't being mom be easy - just once!

Sunday, February 24, 2013

I don't want to go into details but I'm having some huge problems with my son. He is 18 and autistic. He is a senior in HS. He just can't seem to get things together this year. The last 3 years have been great. This year has been a living hell. Now he is facing possible expulsion. I won't know anything until Monday.

And the autism is making is so difficult to get him to understand why he is in so much trouble. However, he does understand that he may not be allowed to complete school and that is upsetting him. I'm torn apart. He has worked so hard and thing may just fall apart completely with only 3.5 months to go.

I'm sick about it. I'm eating everything in sight. I even walked to Walgreen's (a whopping 2 blocks) and got a box of Cadbury eggs. I tried going out for a run, I couldn't even do 2 miles. I have a 5K in two weeks - and I can't jog 2 miles. I just want to cry my eyes out. I can't bring myself to do anything. I'm just sitting here.

I have to hold it together for my son. He needs mom to be a rock. I feel like a pile of blubber.

Sorry, I will be around as much as I can tomorrow. Hopefully I'm worrying over nothing and the principal takes pity on my boy and lets him finish the year. I know is sounds stupid for something like this with all that is going on in others lives, but if you could spare a good wish or hope for my boy, it would be greatly appreciated.
