I have 2 sons with special needs. My 16 yr old son has Asperger's Syndrome. My 14 yr old son is diagnosed with ADHD/ODD/OCD/bi-polar.

My youngest son is on medications and in special ed at school.

My older son has graduated off meds. He's larned to use the parts of his brain that do work to compensate for the parts that are only grey matter.

hi my name is katrina im from townsville in australia. I have 2 sons with cystic fibrosis and i know what u are going through. It is very difficult having 2 very sick children and trying to live a happy and stress free life. Both my boys are on a whole handful of medications and physiotherapy twice a day. Hospital stays every 3 months for 10 to 14 days. All my wishes to your children and just remember if we stay strong the children will be fine.

I have 4 surviving quintuplets - three of whom have Cerebral Palsy.  One is wheelchair dependent and one is going to need some significant Orthopedic surgery to help with her legs.  We've already had the daughter in the wheelchair in the hospital for 3 hip surgeries and many pneumonias.  My normally developing daughter has asthma.  My son has less physical issues and more perceptual problems which tends to give him a short fuse when it comes to difficult tasks like writing or games with fine motor demands (think computer games).  It is challenging, and can be overwhelming.  My children are 7.
