I'm just wondering how other women/mothers cope with or handle husbands who don't believe their child has a "problem"? Our 12 month old daughter has many physical and developmental delays, but it undiagnosed as of now. My husband of 8 years, (we have a 10 yr old typical daughter also), just thinks the baby is a" runt" and will grow out of her problems. This is the opposite of all doctors and therapists she works with. I understand he has his own way, but if he or anyone in his family tells me one more time that I am wasting money on unnecessary medical visits, I will hurt someone. So I guess my question is, how do your marriages survive it?? Am I the only one who believes insurance companies need to provide marriage counseling to parents of special needs children for free???
