  • For me the hardest is when I'm sick or in pain, like i have been lately. There's no choice but to take care of my child before myself, and it's been hard today bc I've been in more pain than I've ever been in in my entire life.Somehow I did it though, thank God.

  • Oh...and the worrying. I feel so vulnerable bc I know if anything were to ever happen to my child, I couldn't go on. I love him so much that it's almost terrifying.

  • hardest thing is having a child that is 'different'
    and dealing with the issues every day, trying not to compare what other 'normal' children are like at the same age
    and the worst is the looks from other parents when my child is around
    the... "there but for the grace of God go I"

    i wonder what my life would be like if she was normal like other kids
