How are your Aspie children holding up during covid?
I know it has been a long time since I wrote anything. I am sorry. Distance Learning created at lot of work for me. I am not complaining. I learned a lot and helped support my staff during this time.
However, during this covid quarantine, our son, Noah, became unglued. It felt like we moved backwards. I felt like each day started by gauging Noah’s mood. Noah seemed to set the tone. He would scream and shout. He took a dark turn talking about how his life sucks. He can’t find a job. His college graduation and ending of his senior year seemed uneventful. He complained that he could be with his friends, which he finally made some great friends at school. Unfortunately, each day Noah woke up, he filled the air with frustration, screaming, and worry about his mental state. His aura exuded negativity and as he entered the room, you could cut the tension with a knife.
None of the tips and tricks I used seemed to be working. My husband and I have been so concerned about Noah’s mental state. Finally, Noah agreed to go to therapy. That is one positive. However, it is a slow process.
I am just wondering, how others are feeling and some of the steps you have taken to provide support. I would love to hear how you or your children are doing.
