What Doesn’t Kill Us Makes Us Stronger….

My Cup Runneth Over

I’m always saying to people that problems are a challenge and they are character building. Well, at this rate, my character is going to be enormous!  I really do hope that it is true when we say “what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger”.

Note to self “make sure to enlarge all doors in house and buy a larger car to accommodate much larger character…..”

The last few days have been one big enormous challenge! It has been one struggle after another and my proverbial cup is OVERFLOWING!

My son is having an incredibly bad week and we aren’t quite sure why but he  is incredibly unsettled.  My capacity to cope with things is severely compromised and I constantly feel like  I’m drowning.

Eggshells

The only way that I can describe our life at the moment is that it is as if we are constantly walking on eggshells.  We are constantly trying to make sure that we are not making demands on our son whilst trying to ensure that our daughter is ok.  We constantly get it wrong!  Who would have thought that something as simple as asking a question and waiting for an answer is a demand!  When it goes wrong, unfortunately our daughter, who is having her own issues, quite often feels that she has caused the problem and she then gets upset as we have to clear up the mess!

Coping

I find it extremely difficult to deal with things when my cup runneth over.  In order to be able to take on new things, I need to be able to empty my proverbial cup!  That’s quite a challenge when you can’t get out on your own.  I wasn’t even able to go to the hospital on my own!  The only way that I could convince him not to come into the room with me was to say “mummy will have to get naked”.  The horror on his face was quite funny but, where needs must and all that.

Living with ASD with Demand Avoidance Traits can be very challenging and, at times, you will feel very much like your cup runneth over. I love the quote “What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger”. At this rate I’m going to be a Titan. Why not join us on our journey.

What’s your favourite quote or saying?  I’d love to hear.

Until next time,

Lyn
