Two special needs kids

Both of my children are special needs. My son is autistic and my daughter has fibermyalgia and is believed to be bi-polar. I do everything I can for my babies, but sometimes is seems so unfair for them to have to go through so much. My daughter is in pain all the time. I just don't know how to make it better for her. My son is wonderful, but he has no friends. Why do these things happen to such wonderful babies. I would never want to change them, but I feel so sad for them sometimes.

I'd like to share with you that since we went on a gluten-free diet all symptoms of fibromyalgia are gone.  It was suggested to me by the Chinese School of Medicine.  Their medicine is centuries old.  Try this for two weeks.  What do you have to lose?  You will be amazed!

hello, I am not sure what state you are in but take a look at this link..there is something called OMT, Osteopathis Manipulation really helps with Fibermyalgia and other things..My friend took her son to a OMT dr in CT for NCR for his plagiocephaly..aka flat head and it has gotten better. There are many benefits of this therapy. Check it out..might help your daughter's pain...

here is an article about it..just google and you can find out places near you or use this site too...

Hi Josie

I'm mom to six year old special needs  boy and I think it is very normal to feel sad for them.  I find it tough when you see other children their age just getting on doing things and things for them needs to be a mission, involve some therapy.  Sometimes wonder how they feel?  I must admit I try talk to other special needs mom & find out what interventions they are doing.  Try link his therapy to activities he enjoys - in his case its music.  Also try use play as part of it.  Amazing to see the progress he makes at his pace.  Always try my best to help him to reach his best potential.
