I haven’t had a chance to read much yet but I have read some. It’s a mom’s blog and her son is diagnosed with a number of disorders.
My son has been diagnosed with ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), Anxiety, OCD, and Childhood Onset Paranoid Schizophrenia. We thought for years that he was on the Autism Spectrum. Turns out that many children with Schizophrenia are misdiagnosed as Autistic. A child with a psychiatric disorder presents all kinds of new challenges that nobody can prepare you for. Add to the mix two toddlers with SPD and developmental delays and you have the makings of a very interesting and chaotic life. Now we take it one day at a time, sometimes one minute at a time. It can be really hard. Okay… it’s really, really hard. I still feel extremely blessed and I cherish my children. It’s not so bad… right?
