I find Mother's Day hurts

I have a 10 year old son who was diagnosed with SPD and ADHD when he was 4. Celebrating Mother's Day hurts me. There always seems to be an issue that brings out anger and over reactions in my kid. I can't remember a holiday at all that hasn't been sad and filled with turmoil in my family.


I feel guilty feeling this way, but I'm jealous of all the moms who seem really loved and appreciated. I have a husband who leaves all the family responsibility up to me. ALL the responsibility. He does go to work...that's about it.

I'm just really tired. I love my kid with all my heart...most of the time...and then there are so many times that I just want to get away from him and all the selfish outburst. He's in a social therapy group, but it doesn't seem to be helping.

I long for someone to talk with about my sadness. Most of all, I just want to feel happiness and joy sometimes too.

I sympathize with you. My son has autism, non verbal and it's almost exactly the same story here . I love my sweet boy to the moon and back, I wouldn't change him for the world, but I relate to the way you feel. You just have to carry on and keep loving and accepting your child. Stay strong and carry on.
