The joys of having a teenager...
I need to vent and this is a good a place as any. I have a special needs child. He has high functioning Autism or as it is know Aspergers. Now I have been though 4 kids teen years and it is no surprise how frustrating those years can be.
That in it self would have me missing Paul. But a grieving teen with Aspergers?!! Oh la la I think I am loosing my mind.
We went to a ball game today, the Flying Squirrels won. All seemed well, we went to Popeye's to get some fried chicken. Still a good day thus far. But when he did not get a rated- M game that he wanted from Best Buy. Things began to rapidly fall apart.
Sounds like a bratty kid right? Well Aspergers obsess on things and topics to the point it is difficult to have a 2 sided conversation with them. Non verbal social skills must be taught.
And though this is not intended to be a lesson on my special needs child. It is these episodes that really remind me how much I miss Paul and am so damned tired of being both parents. I am going to take some Autism classes this summer and hope to catch up on my knowledge to be a better parent and catch things before they get escalate.
Man I am soooooo tired. I miss My Honey...
