So many times I let my pain or fatigue take over and I feel like I am missing my son's life! I can't seem to sit still and get aggitated easy. I try and he knows that i love him and I know that he loves me, but I don't spend the time that I should with him. He's 13 and he probably doesn't notice and thank goodness my husband is a very good father and takes him places and I do the best I can. My husband often suggests that we go play miniature golf during the day or go to the park with rides etc. I just can't do it!! It takes all I have to drive him to camp 1 hour away and have to wait for him for 3 hours and then drive another hour back home. This was for 2 weeks. Most days I have hardly any energy at all and the house needs to be cleaned-- I have terrible dust and dander allegies. His age is somewhat irritating to me because as a boy, he doesn't just hang out and talk. Any suggestions. Thanks- I am 45 and am at home awaiting disability hearing - probably won't happen until the end of the year and I am feeling anxious and in limbo and have a really hard time moving on with anything until I find out if I am approved!!! Don't ask me why, but its just the way I am. If I could sleep until the hearing and decision date... I definately would!!!! My son is going into 9th grade. We do have special times but I know that I do not set the stage enough for him to REALLY talk to me like you would see on the tv shows.
