Raising a child with special needs is undoubtedly taxing mentally and physically.But the emotional and mental fatigue actually gets to most of my counseling clients. I understand when you can't have a fun day at the zoo or the park because you constantly have to scan your kid and the environment. It hurts when someone says something unkind about your child's behavior or appearance . Having to calculate an exit strategy or a plan B everywhere you go, takes a toll on your mental health.
