Although we are waiting for our full eval, my DS has definite sensory issues. HE NEVER STOPS craving stimulation (can't self regulate) so he constantly moves, hits, licks, runs, yells...you get the idea...on top of not napping and night waking. I just can feel my eye twitching and sense I will go crazy any day now. Not a help that we also have an 18 mo DD and 4 mo DS and our tiny house with no basement or yard or his own room leaves me with NO WHERE to put him when he breaks out into his routine. My other two little ones are always irritable because they can never sleep, as he just cannot be quiet.
It is a constant battle that typical mothers (my own included) cannot understand. If I hear one more person tell me he is "just active" or that I need to discipline him, I will scream. I have the 3 kids for 10 hour days and when I ask my husband to take over while I go lie down, take a shower, etc., it is like I am asking the world sometimes. He is a very good help, but does not realize the intensity of my days.
I am so emotionally and physically drained. DH says I just want to punish him when he gets home from work. But I wish he would get just how hard it can be all day, every day. Not to mention that these are his children too. :) feeling sorry for myself, I guess. :(
