Hi I think many of us can relate. I just got back from taking my son to a scoliosis xray in Rochester. One thing that I have been doing for myself is go to the coffee shop and I get coffee and a breakfast sandwich and read. There's nobody to worry about and it's my time to decompress. Another thing I do is exercise. Exercise really helps blow off stress. Plus I have noticed that getting in better shape is helping me deal with the physical and emotional load of having a son with developmental disability. I have gotten to point where I try to participate in a 5k race every month. It does help me to focus on races and learning a new course. I don't think I can just walk on a treadmill because it would be boring. Good luck.
