I woke up this morning with terrible allergies (surprise, surprise). I told my husband that I probably will not accomplish much around the house and only have energy for my work. My son retorted, “mommy, you’re sick a lot”. I told him that I have really bad allergies that have been making me very sick. In actuality, I have a compromised immune system due to my allergies, stress, lack of sleep, etc. Hearing that from my son took me a bit aback. He usually does not pay too much attention to how others are feeling. He is only 6 and usually life revolves around yourself at that age. Double that with his autism, he usually will just keep asking for me to do things and take him places once I say I am sick. He probably still will afterschool. However, he does know he has to accompany me to the allergy doctor. Maybe he will listen a bit to what she tells me, but I bet he will just be focused on the iPad!
I was hoping to feel better today. I did yoga for the first time in a long time yesterday. What was a simple, beginner’s class really tested me (and my allergies). I also rode the bike for an hour yesterday. Today, I planned to ride the bike but woke up with terrible wheezing from the allergies. I did conquer work and was able to do a few laundry chores during my lunch. My lunch has consisted of leftover matzo. My stomach feels terrible, as well. I figured crackers would be the best bet. Tomorrow is my son’s ARD. I am sure the stress of that is not helping today.
