I am EXHAUSTED but do you know what I did today…….nothing physical.
Literally, I sat all day. I took Josiah out to the psych evaluation and then sat and visited a friend. I picked him up for lunch and sat through lunch and then I dropped him off and sat and waited for the second part of the eval to finish. Then we walked for 10 mins, while we waited for Jon to arrive and then we sat and discussed the last 7 years of Siah’s life.
I was already so done even while I was waiting for the second half to be finished and I think that I figured it out……the stress is absolutely brutally wearing.
I already knew that.
And before you tell me “just don’t stress”…….it’s not a conscious thing. If I could just stop. I would.
Today felt like 6 hours of insanely intense stress……..and now we wait to hear the results of the assessment and the scoring of the tests.
Hopefully we will, soon, have more answers and a better understanding of how to help this sweet boy of ours succeed.
