About halfway through the material, I started to feel sick to my stomach. It became overwhelming and just plain sad. Seeing video of my boy 2 years ago, looking so young, screaming that he wanted to kill himself was enough to bring me to tears.
My son has been through hell and back. He really is remarkable!
Today I felt pleased with all that I’d pulled together. I was surprised about some of the details I’d forgotten, it was proof that documenting your child’s symptoms can be a valuable tool. With so many details, there was no way I could’ve kept it straight on my own. What’s interesting is that when you start seeing symptoms, you never think about what will be coming in the years ahead. It was more than I’d imagined and tougher than I remember. Thankfully, my son has forgotten most of it.
Check back for my next post when I share how our much anticipated appointment went. It’ll be worth reading!
