“The hardest thing that I have found about being a special needs parent is the feeling of isolation. Feeling that nobody “gets it”. I feel overwhelmed and exhausted. There are days that i am guilty of only seeing my child’s disability and not my child. I pay more attention to my child’s behaviors and not enough attention to him. Some days I have a pity party.
I have learned that sharing my feelings helps me cope and let others know that they are not alone,”
Please know that you are not alone! Below are links to journeys of other parents who have been where you are. We hope that some of their stories will help you on your journey.
