That is how I feel like. Once again, the rotten sinuses have gotten the best of me & moved on down into my chest flaring the old asthma. Yuck.

We have our IEP on Tuesday morning to discuss the ESY & the bussing issues. I hope we can come to an easy resolution. I got some great advice from some wonderful people in addition to a letter from the doctor. Can't see how they can turn down the ESY. Her teacher said she needed summer school at the parent-teacher conference a few weeks ago. The bus is another story. Yuckier.

MM has been really out of sorts. Some of her old "ticks" are back as well as the new ones going strong. Feeling poorly, I am out of patience. I hate that, but I feel trapped by her ASD. This weekend has just been a bummer for me. The weather was nice, actually too hot when you have a cold type thing. I hate that I feel like this. I don't want to be trapped by this. I just need to figure out what is going on with her & help to quell the stims. Yuckiest.

Btw, we ran to Tar.get the afternoon. I heard something that made me so upset that tears started to well. It put things in perspective for me. A cute little girl, probably about 4 was saying "who is going to carry me & hug me now?". Her mother replied to her "just shut up. you are driving me crazy. you don't need to be loved on all the time". WHAT?!? It was all I could do to not tell her to thank her lucky stars her daughter was asking to be loved on and wanting to interact with her. She had a wonderful, healthy, neurotypical child. I wish my child would ask me for that instead of asking for directions for the 5 millionth time of the day. DH was with me, so I bit my tongue.

Yuckiest beyond yuck.

Don't some parents just piss you off?? I swear! It makes me angry too.

I have been having major issues with allergies/ sinuses too. I found o.t.c. Claritin works wonders!

Hope you feel better soon!

Hope you are feeling better soon...this time of year between the weather, sinus and IEP's is always such a challenge for so many!

Hope you're feeling better soon!

That mom is nothing short of an a$$hole in my book. Are there times when Caitlyn wants to be hanging on me all day? Yep. And I tell her that I need some "mom space." But I would never tell her that her wanting my attention and love is driving me crazy.

Once again, people should have to fill out an application to have a baby.
