lets talk about support.
<p> Do you remember your life before finding out about your child DX?. my husband and i, used to love going to concerts, movies, dinners, going out to parties. After getting the DX, little by little the life changes and it becomes all about your child, how to help, psycatrict, medications, social skills groups and how to fight with public schools for services. after a while you start making excuses about invitations, less friends, family is at loss for words how to help or what to say and after time, you do not remember your life before DX. but you do have to take care of your self, because your child depends on you so much, that remembering who you are is very important to stay strong. . it is o.k. to grieve for the dreams you had about the child you wanted, to get angry, to blame doctors, even your husband. you will go trough shock, denial, depression,feeling alone, helpless, but, then you will rich deep inside of your self and you will find strength that you never though was there, you will become a warrior, supper mom, doctor, psycatrict your self, advocate for your son school, still don't forget to be a woman, human who will make mistakes and feel sorry for your self sometimes. to all you warriors, you are very special parents.</p>
