Another Diagnosis?

I'm normally a pretty upbeat person but sometimes I feel like life is just throwing me curveball after curveball. Actually more specifically life seems to be hurling them at my son's head.

First we adjusted to my son being diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. It was hard at first but we learned how to do all his therapies and we adjusted to our new normal.

The next adjustment was to Mark being developmentally delayed in school. It was beyond painful hearing how far behind Mark was compared to his peers but again we adjusted to our new normal.

Now we have another potential diagnosis and it just breaks my heart. Doesn't Mark have enough to deal with already? Can't this kid get a break?

I want to crawl under the covers and hide from the world. Oh how I wish that was possible! Instead, I will wait for the results from the specialist and then we will go from there. Sometimes being a grown up really sucks.


  1. Oh how I feel you. We found out all about my son's special needs at 2 years old. Now after a year in he's doing better but I worry about my 3 month old having his problems or more. This is one thing no one prepares you for when you become a parent. Hold in there!

    1. Thanks. I know what you mean about being unprepared for parenthood. No one goes into parenting thinking special needs will be a reality. But it is so we define normal.

  2. Oh girl. I've been there. It's so frustrating. I've wanted to hide a time or twenty.
