I’ve been thinking about writing my experiences of being a parent to a child with sensory/anxiety/OCD. I’m a little ambivalent with this endeavor as I don’t want it to be viewed as a negative story about my daughter. In fact, I find it to be quite a success story, with a very positive outcome. The honesty of the first few years may seem very far from this truth, but by the time I complete my written journey, it will be much more apparent.
A couple of years ago, I considered therapy because there were a lot of issues that I was working through as a result being my daughter’s mother. Issues that may have been a part of me even before she was born. Maybe this is what brought these emotions full circle for me? I’d have to delve deeper to answer this question.
