What’s happened today…..

Today has been an interesting day.

I’m in the middle of trying to go through the draft EHCP.  Have you seen one of these documents?!  It’s kind of mind blowing.

Anyway, I managed to get my daughter to school this morning – a definite positive!

Had a visit from Surrey Family Services which turned into a very helpful meeting.

Then it came time for the school run.  It was an early finish as its Easter so, I’d been preparing my son.  I had arranged to collect a friends daughter too so the pressure was on.  Half an hour before I was due to collect, my son starts to have a meltdown.  He couldn’t possibly get into the car as he was feeling sick – significant as the friend that I was bringing home has a sickness phobia…….

Choices Strategy

Ok, I’ll give choices:

1. have a mint, open the window and come with me or

2. stay at home as I wont be long.

No go on either option.


Panic sets in.  Can’t think straight.  What do I do????  Thank goodness for friends.  I felt awful but I had to ask a friend to collect both girls for me.  I find it hard to ask for help but I had too.

I feel paralysed by anxiety.  I have so much to do/in my head that I don’t know where to start.  So………I don’t start.

I need to go to out as I have 2 items to collect but I can’t leave the house.  I don’t feel that I can cope even if I could get my son to leave the house.

On the surface, I may appear fine, underneath I’m rapidly treading water trying not to drown.

All in all, a very interesting day!
