You know what my first thought was?
I hope he doesn’t recommend putting my youngest son on medication.
Does it sound strange that I would think this since I’ve seen first hand the miracles of medication for my oldest?
I would never want to deny my children the opportunity to have a more fulfilling life, freed of symptoms that bring them harm, yet if confronted with the recommendation to medicate another child, I would feel scared all over again to take this step. I’m well aware of the risks involved with medication. I take it very seriously. Every night I pray over my oldest son that the medications he’s taking would do only good and no harm.
I don’t want to pray this over two of my children.
I know I may be getting ahead of myself, I just wanted to share that this doesn’t get easier.
