have any of you experienced bouts of moderate-severe anxiety? I've been a mess on and off lately.
Threre are a number of things that are getting to me:
- DD's CSE meeting and all the changes that will take place when she leaves to preschool setting and goes to kindergarten in the fall
- changes in her summer schedule that throw our day to day "routines" out of whack (opening the door for tantrums)
- reaching out for help (autism service agencies) only to have NO ONE return your phone calls
- generally feeling out of control
Do you ever go through times like this? How do you calm down and work through it? I think my stress level is getting to the point where my body is starting to revolt and I am having physical problems.
I also work full time and have another child so it is hard for me to be on autism duty all. the. time.
I'm just frustrated I guess.
