Feeling down ☹️
I am a mom to a 3 and 5.5 y/o. My oldest was diagnosed as being in the gray area of normal and ASD about six months ago. It has been a really difficult year trying to parent him. I have been in counseling several times since becoming a mom for different reasons. No therapy has really helped long term. Over the past month or two I haven’t been able to sleep well, have been exhausted, irritable, feeling pretty bad about myself in general. I am really starting to wonder if this is depression? I think it is time to consider medication but I don’t know how to even go about it? Something has to change ☹️ I feel like I cannot even enjoy my kids because I feel so overwhelmed and down.
