Living With the Guilt
Having a child with a disability can certainly be difficult. There are moments where we wonder if anyone will ever understand or get what it is like to walk in our shoes. Does anyone around us really “get it”? How many times do we feel guilty for seeing ONLY our child’s disability instead of WHO our child is. The guilt is real. The daily behaviors and demanding needs shadow our ability to focus on our child as a person.
However, we have learned that sharing our feelings helps us cope. Some of us have people to help us process the guilt.
Who is your go-to person during your times of emotional struggle? Or are you the person that tends to do it alone?
