Today has been a good day!
No meltdowns, no panic attacks. Today I got to take my beautiful daughter out for afternoon tea.
Surrey LA doesn’t yet recognise PDA but we have come as close to a diagnosis as we are going to get. We have started using PDA strategies and the difference……..well the difference is amazing. But OMG the stress is incredible. I am so tired you can not possible understand. We are having to unlearn and relearn everything.
Many people will judge us but, we can only fight one battle at a time. At the moment, the priority is getting our son to sleep. At the moment, he doesn’t really sleep. As you probably know, lack of sleep makes everything so much worse. Believe me, I know.
So far, I’ve undergone counselling and I’m on antidepressants. My overriding priority is to remain calm and level for my son. If I can’t do that, everyone suffers.
My family is the world to me and together, we are so strong.
This weekend is Easter and I am going to be spending it going through a draft EHCP. I don’t know what I am doing and my son’s future depends on it. If I don’t appear to be my normal cheerful self, please don’t take it personally. I have some amazing friends and I know that you will understand.
