did you feel guilty when your child was diagnosed?
this post is for any moms who has a child that has been diagnosed with something......
since the morning i found out i was pregnant, my biggest concern has been that something would be wrong with my child......i have been terrified that she would be born with some horrible disease, or would get something horrible later in life.
when she was born she had her umbillical cord wrapped around her neck twice and didnt breathe for the first ten minutes of her life.
six weeks after she was born i found out that during my pregnancy i actually had a placental abruption, and realized that i could have potentially lost her.
now she has been diagnosed with torticollis.....i realize that this isnt a horrible thing to be diagnosed with. i guess it is somewhat common and infants outgrow it. and i also realize that there are so many other things out there that are much more dificult for a child to be diagnosed with.
but no matter how serious the diagnosis is, i still feel so guilty and upset about it. i feel so bad for my poor daughter and am so worried that she is in pain, and am also scared that she is going to have problems with development later in her life. and i just feel like somehow i should be able to stop it.
so......has anyone else felt like this?
