Word Of The Week – Struggle

I haven’t joined in with the Word of the Week linky for a few weeks now and that is because I have found the past few months a real struggle. So it felt right to use the word struggle for this weeks word of the week.


I have found the past few months really hard. We have had a big change to our routine and it has taken us all a while to get used to it. Ethan is still struggling with the changes and he expresses his upset with his behavior. It hasn’t helped with the mood of our house but I’m hoping that he will settle soon and become calmer again.

I have felt quite low and that has led to quite a few bouts of illness, three to be exact and that is just for me. I have had to have two rounds of antibiotics and last week I had to catch up on sleep. It was a forced downtime that I must have needed.

I am glad to say that I feel like I’m slowly overcoming the struggles of the past few months. I’m feeling a little but more with it and I want to be productive with my time. I will never have enough time in the day to do everything that needs to be down but I think that is just one of the battles that you have when working from home.

I knew that 2018 was going to be a year of change for us what with Little E starting school. I didn’t anticipate the amount of change that has come our way with our work. I think it is a positive thing for us all we just need to get used to the new routine.

  1. Sorry to hear that you’ve been struggling. It sounds like you needed a forced week of complete rest, though. I am glad you feel you’re starting to come out of it now, so hope the new routines set in soon and feel more positive for you all x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

    I know how hard change is as an autistic person and a parent with a child with autism I can understand from both perspectives. My eldest really struggles with change and has pretty epic meltdowns. I am sure with time and understanding you will come through.
    I am glad you are feeling a bit better, sometimes it takes time but you will get there, just be kind to yourself X #wotw

  3. Ah I hope you are ok it sounds like its been tough and there is nothing worse than being ill. I bet it has all taken its toll on Ethan but it seems like you are coming through it I hope you are ? x
