I’m just so beyond exhausted. Parenting is hard, but parenting a child with autism is on another level.
Today, we had a 45 minute meltdown in the grocery store. Still no idea why. But...kicking, screaming, hitting, biting, banging her head on the floor, throwing things...all of it. It took 3 people to carry her out of the store. She refused to sit in her car seat and had to be physically held down on the drive home. She kicked the back of the seat a million times. The meltdown carried on for another 2 hours at home. Everyone is covered in bruises, including my daughter.
