We’ve been having a few rough weeks since the start of High School, The Marching Band Season, and My Work Schedule 😫.
I’m tired and Justin is very much overwhelmed. Last night Justin came to me and asked me if I think he has ADHD in addition to his Autism because he can’t seem to focus. I assured him that he does not have ADHD and that it’s not that he can’t focus it’s just that when you don’t get enough rest and have a busy schedule like his, it’s hard to think straight.
I told him to think of it like this, what if we took away Marching Band would you be able to focus more on your work. He immediately said yes. So I also had him compare his schedule this year to last year. He then realized that he doesn’t have ADHD and that he just need to learn how to manage his time better and prioritize.
Now if he did show signs of ADHD I’d be the first one to work on getting him help.
Last night was our first night getting some rest and having much quality time together that we so needed.
This week will be another crazy week but we will make the best of it.
