You have every right to be upset!
by: Patrice Shennette

I am a Mom of an autistic 18 year old and I just wanted to send some support after reading your post. It can be very frustrating to deal with the medical profession. I had to "fire" my daughter's pediatrician when she was young, as she (not me) was in denial for almost 2 years about her developmental delays. ("you're a new Mom and just over-reacting")

I also spent many (too many to admit) years, listening to various Doctors that told me that "normal bowel movements" are not the norm with the autistic population and just to keep persevering with toilet training. The reality is that my child was severely, extensively constipated!

I don't know what your daughter's issues are but one thing I CAN tell you is listen to your self, as her Mom you know her best and try not to get too hung up on the diagnosis but rather what can be in her daily diet of sensory, speech,love, social etc...

I am sending you strength and hoping it gets easier, remember there is a reason you have your special child, one day you will know that reason but for now, take a deep breath and take care of yourself.

Best regards,

Patrice Shennette
