Have been in bed with flu for the last 2 week and still feel terrible but dh is working days this week so I have had to get on with things.
ds2 is poorly as well he has been either asleep or crying for the last week .I have just had to do the 45minute round trip to school twice as dd1 had an afterschool club.I am absolutly shattered pushing ds2 in his major has nearly killed me.Got to school and was told by some of the mums that I should have made him walk.Do these people think I put him in a pushchair to make things easier god how I wish he could walk that far.
I just feel like curling up in a ball and crying.Don't think I can face getting feedback from the clinical psyc tomorrow.
are these mum's insensitive or just stupid? How old is ds2> I would have thought sitting in a major buggy it wuld be failry obvoious to even the most imbiclic mother in the school playground that he can't walk that far.
Meea, tomorrow is another day. Don't worry about the feedback until then. Parents at school need to mind their own business. Sadly they don't always. Whilst I realise that all you want to do is punch these people in the face, it's probably best that you don't. I have often wondered whether I should keep leaflets in my twin buggy so that when people make stupid comments about the DTs or me coping with them. Then I could just hand them out. I have a friend designing a t-shirt for me that says P*ss Off they are twins. Obviously the writing would be stylised so that they would have to look properly, but it would make me feel good. lol
It's good to rant! Don't worry honey. Smile, you do a great job and your children appreciate you and love you with a passion.
Ds2 is 3 in a few weeks .
I think if I wasn't feeling so rubbish and worried about having to face tomorrow on my own I probably would have said something because people like that need educating.
I know that a good nights sleep will probably help so lets hope i can get him to take his melatonin tonight.
meea , no one understands unless they have a child with cerebal palsy themselves, just ignore those mums, my nieghbour thourght that my dd didnt walk becuse i carried her everywhere she thourght it was my fault, little does she know , you not the only one, from lekki
Have had a cup of tea and some chocaolate and am feeling much happier.
Beginning to get my fighting hat on again.
As for the mums one of them has just phoned to ask my advice about her daughters skates.Dd1 is a budding figure skater.So I intend explain about ds2's problems while giving her my help.
Maybe then the comments may stop.
Oh good, pleased to hear the chocolate has worked even though it wasn't on my prescription! Good idea to take the opportunity to tell the other mum about DS's problems. I think its better to tell people but its hard sometimes to get started, esp in a group. You sound so much more positive
I find it hard to know what to say to people as ds2 hasn't a diagnosis it is hard to explain his problems to people when we don't really know what the problem is.
I do feel much more positive and will fight and fight until we get the help and support he needs and deserves.I just find the constant fighting draining.
