Who needs sleep?
Like really, who needs sleep.... Autism, that's who doesn't need sleep!
James woke at 1am like he had slept for 100 days and had the energy of 10 men....
What the actual f**k... YES, I am using swear words today and I don't give a flying DUCK.
Theo got up with James at 1am and I did a switch at 3.45am.
At 3.45am I walked into a fully light lounge room and a James waiting for me to read 5000 books.
We read books, we discussed WHY we should be SLEEPING, didn't help my cause.
At 5.30 am James finally laid on the couch and slept until 7am.
The 1.5hour nap I had was amazing.
It was one of those sleeps where your entire body wipes out and I woke completely moulded to the lounge.
Is this punishment for having adult time yesterday?
James is clearly in severe overload today. I am sitting here pounding my keyboard, venting beacuse if I don't I am going to.... actually I don't know what I am going to do but I am scared.
These are the moments that make you realise you don't raise a mainstream child.
The moments they are so uncomfortable they can't get their words out.
They scream for everything they know, that they think they want but they actually want non of it.
They are a mess. So uncomfortable in their skin.
The twinkle goes from behind their eyes and all you see is pain.
I have a feeling we are in for a LONG, LONG, LONG day.
I am going to try remain as positive as possible and remember that this too shall pass.
I anticipate approximately 50 coffees today.
We are also locked in. When James is like this we can not expose him to the outside world.
Thank you for listening as always...
