    Friday we finally go the diagnosis confirmation that Andrew has Autism. The Dr also would not give AJ a "normal" diagnosis. She said there are too many "ticks" to say he is a normal child. And because they are twins she wants them both to go through the gauntlet of tests (EEG, MRI, bloodwork, sleep study, etc)

    My husband is in denial of this, and refuses to talk to me about it, but is happy go lucky about anything else you talk about.

    my mother asked if I did something wrong while pregnant.

    thanks to all this I had the worst migrane. Thank goodness my dr put me on anti-depression meds two months ago, but I don't think I would have handled this weekend without it.

    Today my husband had to work, so I had to cook my own mother's day dinner, and clean house. BLAH!!! And he didn't even show up on time today, due to an arrest. Don't people know not to fight on mothers day?!?!

    So here it it 7:45 on Sunday night, I am tired and want a glass of wine, and there is none in the house.

    I WANT A DO OVER!!!

    It would be so easy to say don't worry but I know that wont help, Keep your chin up and try to find something good that happened today! I work with children and know you must be feeling so low! Autisim is not the end of the world these children have so much to offer us. keep looking for the positives! Happy Mothers Day!

    I had a bad Mother's Day a couple years ago right after my grandmother and mother-in-law passed away. It was a horrible day that I just wanted to get over with.

    You need to take a nice long hot bubble bath with some soft music (or absolute quiet, I know how nice that is sometimes) and pamper yourself a little bit tonight. This is your special day even though things seem like a mess. Try to salvage what is left of your day.

    I pray that everything works out well for you and your family.

    BTW, what meds are you on? It was around my bad Mother's Day that I finally admitted that I needed an anti-depressant. I take Lexapro and it has done WONDERS for me! It does take some time and probably dosage changes to get to where you need to be. Hang in there!

    I am so very sorry this is a bad day for you and people are being inconsiderate :( I have 2 bottles of wine I am sorry we aren't closer we could drink them together :D :D But I will drink a glass for you I promise! Your mother just wasn't thinking don't let that get to you. Your husband can't help it ..... he's a man, sorry but it is just that simple. You will have to learn to deal with this in your own way. You are a mother every day and you don't need one particular day to make you feel special. and sometimes when you have smaller children and a busy or unthoughtful husband you have to make the plans yourself and say hey this is what we are doing to celebrate my day. Just take charge sometimes and don't feel sorry for yourself. ....and remember never ever let yourself run out of wine!! I hope tomorrow is a much better day for you. Hugs to you :-)
