26 thoughts on “Tiredness and autism

  1. It must be so difficult for you sometimes. I struggle to do things physically, but I know it can be just as hard to do things when you are struggling mentally. Did I ever tell you, I have an adult son with autism, he’s not even managed to have a relationship or any children so in my eyes you are doing incredibly well. It doesn’t matter that you can’t manage days out or crafts, you still manage to feed your children and keep them safe and in the end that’s what really matters. xx

  2. How on earth people can think that you would ‘outgrow’ your autism is beyond my comprehension! I think you seem to manage well despite the challenges, and parents certainly don’t need to be ‘perfect’ to be good parents. Actually, it’s probably better for kids to see that adults can struggle too, sometimes (I feel like I do a lot of the time, especially with tiredness, so can very much relate to your post!) ❤️ #KCACOLS

  3. I think you are fabulous – you love your family and struggle with a monster in your brain. I have physical disabilities and have a problem with tiredness – I tihink lots of meds make the tiredness worse. Keep up the great fight! #MMBC

  4. Back when I suffered severe depression because of my PTSD, I often struggled to be the parent I wanted to be. You’re not alone in this feeling of mom guilt so please don’t be too hard on yourself. You are a human being and no human being is perfect. We’re not meant to be. The biggest question I used to ask myself when I was in the throws of depression and having major mom guilt was “Are my kids happy? Are they healthy? Are they loved?” The answers were always yes. It doesn’t stop the mom guilt from happening but it did help my brain ease up on the over thinking. And shame on anyone who is ignorant enough to think you “outgrow Autism”. My son will never outgrow it. He gets better along the way with dealing with certain things as he gets older but he will never outgrow it. It’s there to stay and I love him for it. You’re a good person and a good mom. Don’t forget that. #mixitup

  5. I enjoy reading your posts. I have a new understanding of autism because of them. I think you do a fantastic job juggling the condition and being a great mum. And I love how openly you talk about things x #TriumphantTales

  6. My little man struggles with much of the same things; overwhelmed, tired, rubbish with instructions (as he has dyspraxia) I really feel for you guys. I think I have things tough. You guys are stars. Keep doing what you’re doing. 👍

  7. I didn’t realise you were autistic (you’d think I’d have picked that up by now). I have fibromyalgia and struggle with tiredness, it brings immense guilt at times. I think you’re being hard on yourself, you’re doing an amazing job and so long as you kids are happy and healthy, that’s all that matters. Thanks for linking up #twinklytuesday

  8. I can imagine that this is such a hard thing to deal with, I really cannot understand how some people think you can outgrow autism. One of my friends son has just been diagnosed with Autism and each day is completely different to the next, so try not to be so hard on yourself! Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time.

  9. I have Asperger’s I get what you’re saying 110% plus if I get knocked out of kilter that’s me gone for a whole month, I can’t hold onto anything anymore. It’s soooo tough but life goes on – I honestly haven’t found much that helps especially with anxiety, but I’m finding audible and a good book in my ears helps from time to time! #KCACOLS

  10. You shouldn’t be so hard on yourself. I can understand how exhausting it must be to constantly have to struggle to do things but you sound as though you’re doing an amazing job. #KCACOLS
