My word of the week is:
Because the past two weeks have been really challenging mentally for me and it took it’s toll on me.
It is a return to school and no anxiety induced situations for me this week which makes me feel calm because I haven’t used up all my emotions. Therefore allowing my home life to be a bit more calmer, which naturally has a direct impact on my son.
My son however, returning back to school (who is autistic) has been having a fair few meltdowns, luckily we have purchased ear defenders and have found them to be really helpful. I think when my son gets home he is exhausted from all the noise and stimuli so to put them on and drown out everything for a while until he is calmer has been helpful.
I now can not wait to get some adult ones for me for similar reasons as they are quite comforting on the ears and for someone who has sensory issues is an added bonus.
