The Other Side

For a while now I’ve been meaning to write about my experiences as a parent to a child with various “issues”.  In CB’s 8 years we’ve dealt with sensory issues, developmental delays, torticollis, plagiocephaly, anxiety issues, depression, medication, etc.

When I talk with friends about the past I always joke that I probably need therapy.  While I am mostly joking, I do think that I need an outlet of some sort.  I am also hoping that our story may give hope to someone who needs it.  When you’re in the thick of it all, it’s hard to see the other side.  I think we’re at least one foot into that landing.  A place of peace, where I don’t need to worry about the future and I’ll be OK with whatever is on the horizon.

It’s taken me 8 years to get here.  I will say that with gratitude because I know there are others who will wait a lifetime for the same or less.

All of these posts will be titled “The Other Side” for easy reference.

  1. So good to know. Not that I know at all what it’s like to go through what you’ve gone through but still it’s encouraging none the less.
