Tonight…tonight I’m angry!!!
I’m angry that my little boy has to fight and struggle when it comes to every aspect of his life.
I’m angry that things that come so easy to everyone else doesn’t to him.
I’m angry that I have to wipe tears that shouldn’t be shed.
I’m angry that he has to have days where he can’t control his slobber and he is on edge all day because his tummy hurts
I’m angry that every week sometimes a couple times a week I have to do the thing he hates most to help him just go to the bathroom.
I’m angry that he has to sit on the potty forever and sometimes still gets nothing out.
I’m angry that he pushes with all his might…so hard he throws up… over and over…but still nothing.
I’m angry we can be sitting here almost two and a half hours after bedtime and he still can’t stay asleep.
I’m angry that I have to sit inches from his face and practically coach my 8 year old like a woman in labor every time he sits on the potty.
I’m angry that it’s only him and I in this every single time.
I’m angry that there are no breaks. That he and I, together, have to work through our frustrations not only with the situation but also with each other.
Tonight I’m just angry!! I don’t have these nights very often…I don’t allow it…but sometimes they creep in. I don’t want your pity and I don’t want any words of advice right now (I do so appreciate all the words of advice but not right now) ❤️
Tonight I just need to be angry. I need to feel it deep. I need to cry myself to sleep (or hopefully cry it out in the shower I still have to take before I can lay down and shut my eyes because I get no breaks to even shower!!).
Tonight CP…I’m angry at you!! Tonight…I hate you!! And that’s okay because I don’t often let you get the best of me and neither does Grant but tonight…as we sat on the toilet and both had tears running down our faces you won for just a split second.
Moral of the story: it’s okay to have bad days. It’s okay to scream and cry and want to punch something. Feel that and be in it. Then take a deep breath, stand up, hold your head high and keep on going!
Have a blessed day!
