So, today I talked with a coach about why my business has fallen apart.
I blame it on my children. Isn’t that convenient?
Anyway, I explained that before this last year, I had no outside help for Nove. No group, no camp, no case managers and counselors…… And I had all kinds of Time!
Now, we have meetings, meetings about meetings. She has groups, and counseling, and case management visits (when her support makes it).
So, yeah, that’s why my business has been slowly declining…… I don’t have time! Even my weekends have been blown to hell thanks to the ex and his crappy job. He’s rarely here on weekends like he used to be because his truck broke down 4 states away, or he is stuck waiting on a load.
Speaking of meetings. Tomorrow is her 3 year evaluation. I’m not sure what’s up, what to expect, or what kind of bomb shell will be dropped. With all the school budget cuts, I’m afraid she’ll lose support and that will not be good. She nearly failed (well, she did fail) and got kicked out of school last year without the supports she now has.
We’ll hear from the new district autism expert though. That could be interesting. We had a meeting with her shortly after school began and we filled out a survey type thing….. kind of like a Connors assessment but geared for more autistic like behaviors. I can’t remember what it was called.
So, if we survive this meeting, then we get to go to her case management team’s official therapist for a visit, which is new.We are required to meet with her once every 6 months even though we have a family therapist (for nearly 3 years now). She’s nice though, so it should be okay.
But, when am I supposed to get anything done? I have a car that needs major attention, I might not be able to drive to these appointements!
Walking won’t work in this cold. No. It. Won’t. Work.
