just want someone to read this
I’m a single mum of a child with autism but I struggle , I struggle to cope , I struggle to understand and I feel so alone , don’t get me wrong I’m surrounded by family & friends but they don’t have my life , their kids are doing the typical kids things , my child don’t do that , I spend my life looking at families and wishing that was me , please don’t think I don’t love my child because I do and I hate to use this phrase but it’s unfair , just have to say all this because I don’t have anyone who understands, everyday I try to say to myself I’m lucky to have a child as I know some people can’t have children and yes I’m blessed but it’s so tough , right now I feel like I’m the only one on the planet , if that makes sense , it feels like a right lonely place right now but I know I’m not alone with feeling like this I just not spoke to anyone who actually feels the same as me , thank u for reading this
