It seems to be the general consensus on here that moms who have a sn child, or god forbid more than one, worked hard to get those labels and are relieved/happy/thankful/proud to have those labels. So...do you feel that way? Did you fight to get your kid labeled?

I did fight to him diagnosed, but that was in his best interest and for his health. He would have died had I not pushed for him to be diagnosed, and he would have suffered, or at least not be doing as well academically, if I would have allowed myself to be brushed off by teachers and doctors.

I'd give my own life to make my baby better...

But you're damn right I fought to have her diagnosed. It's the reason she's still alive today...she was able to start treatment.

I don't know anyone who fought to get there kid diagnosed with any type if sn. If anything most fight the diagnosis until they can't anymore. I fought against it until it became obviously that not one but two of my kids had sn. All of the testing I had done was to see if it wasn't something else.

I got my daughter "labeled" so that she could get the accommodations she needs. It is certainly not something that has me doing cartwheels across the living room.

No I'm not happy he's sn. I'm not happy he'll struggle for the rest of his life and that I will always take care of him. Is this bash sn night or something?

Sometimes it is necessary to fight for a diagnoses to get proper treatment by the way of therapies, school needs, physical needs.

I didn't have to fight to get my son's diagnosis. It was very visible that something was wrong with him. It just took 2 years to get an official dianosis because it involved several specialists and tons of tests. I was relieved to find out why my child was disabled, and to know what we were working with so we could get him the help he needed. I am not happy he has a physical disability, but I am proud of everything he has achieved despite what doctors have told us.

Oh yes, I'm thrilled that my 7 year old is the size of a 4 yr old and can't walk or use the bathroom on her own


Jesus get the fuck out with that nonsense
