I don't often post about DS1 ASD but I'm really struggling this holidays.
every December is hard my DH works LOTS more and I go from having two at school and one at home to all three home, bored and looking at me to entertain them.
DS1 is completely non verbal and not toilet trained, every morning I clean up his poo and wee off the floor while he is in the shower possibly, more often then not, destroying the bathroom. He is obsessed with food and texture. He spends most of the day dragging me to the cupboard for food and is always naked. He destroys everything
I'm tired. I have emergency respite day booked for next month but that's all I can get. I need something regular! I have asked but no one seems to be able to offer it to me. This holidays because we can't get help for DS1 we've put DS2 in care for two days a week.
Having DS1 and DS2 all day is killing me. I'm quite sick with a lung infection and my asthma is flaring up because of it. I just want a rest, I want school back.
I hate the Christmas holidays, I spend the whole time cranky and feeling trapped How do you cope with out therapies and school for your SN kids?
