On another note, I also have a question about how you maintain calm at home and keep your relationship with your spouse okay while dealing with all of this crazy special ed stuff.
Since we got Mia's diagnosis, and I have been battling with the board of ed, I've been really stressed and snapping at my boyfriend a lot. You see, Mia's dad left us (we got divorced) when she was 3 months old, but we've been living with my boyfriend for the last year, and he is wonderful to both of us and very supportive. However, I know my attitude lately has been bothering him. I feel like I'm doing my best to make time for him and let him know that I appreciate him. And I want to let him know that I respect him and value his input in this process. But I seem to always just end up snapping.
For example, he's like, "We need to get her in to see a developmental pediatrician before this meeting in the next 7 days. Just do whatever it takes. Call everywhere." And I'm like, "Aghhh!!! I'm trying to do the best I can!!! You don't know what it's like having to deal with these people all day!!!!"
Ugh. Any advice for keeping your relationship sane?
