I'm talking about me!!! Ds 11 thankfully only has really bad meltdowns around once a week as we've managed to avoid triggers etc.. But when he does have one it can last up to 1.5hours. I have to stay with him (as he'd lash out at his siblings otherwise) and try talk him down or else it continues to escalate. Sometime it gets physical.
Post meltdowns I'm totally exhausted and can have really bad headaches. Going to bed etc is not an option as I've already had to drop everything while chaos is taking place.
Not looking for any advice as I know there's no solution and this is my life.
