I had my son Jake when i was 17. when he was 4 months he started having seizures, we started testing for that. when he was 15 months i noticed a lack in verbal skills, and him losing some things he learned. so that lead to more testing. I had his sister when he was 16 months. then when his sister turned one (that month) he was diagnosed as autistic. he;s three now and he;s been getting help and is doing good but it adds an extra layer to the stuggles of young mother hood
is anyone else mommy to a child with special needs? how has it effected you? have you felt more judgment because of it? any nightmare doctors or workers as a result?
