How is it our sons can seem like this doesnt bother them? But then one day you watch him and you see everything he cant do but you sit and think its like this every day and hes fine. But this day he cries. I watched my son at a birthday party today, the other kids were playing with water balloons and a pinata. He tried playing both with them he was to weak to hit any candy out of the pinata and then when one of the bigger kids busted it all the other kids got the candy and my son sat under a tree crying because he couldnt bend down to get the candy so he didnt get any. Then when they played water balloons he said his legs were hurting so i told him he could sit down well when he tried to get up a kid hit him with one and he cried because it hurt then they were down to the balloon and he wanted it well the birthday boy gave it to him and he was to weak to even bust the balloon. I have never seen my son give up so easily he is the strongest person i have ever met he is my hero. Yet everyone says im there hero because they dont see how i can deal with this every day. Its been 5 years since he was diagniosed and we are still trying to deal with this but the truth is im getting exhausted and most days i have to force myself to get up in the mornings because i know what i have to face when i do get up. That makes me sound like a horrible mother but my health isnt wonderful and i have to push my issues aside until i deal with him and lately its getting harder. what can i do? does anyone else feel this way?
