You aren't in denial, you said you know what the outcome will be--you fear the loss of hope that autism won't be the diagnosis. I understand. I was there 8 years ago. I knew that is what they were going to tell me, but while I hoped for the best, I expected the worst. There is a great story that I would like to share with you. I share it was all parents of newly diagnosed. Please read it. You are just starting a different journey then the one you expected. It's not an easy ride, but it's rewarding and interesting. Like a previous poster said, It will not make you love her any less, she still will be who she always has been. You will now know what you are facing.
Please read this link, I hope it helps.
