There. I did it. I wrote the words in a public domain.
You know it's kind of ironic that I'm struggling just writing those words since my son is possibly struggling with the definition of those words every minute of his life. I say possibly as we're still in the throes of testing, but we already have some fairly definitive results.
So I guess we're still in shock. I guess we're still partly in denial. All these little things that we considered just his personality and cute little quirks have a label. Who would have thought?? I mean we weren't in complete denial, we knew something just didn't seem right and the tantrums and self absorbed behavior was just escalating. But who looks at their baby and sees this as more than just a stage. We sure as hell initially didn't.
So now the only way is up. We finish the testing, we work in conjunction with the specialists and school to help him be the best he can be. Because right now he's not happy. And it breaks my heart.
