Hopefully this is the only board but I really need a better supporting group of people to talk to about my daughter.

Hello I am Angela new to this board but not to JM (Ive been around for a while)
I have two kids one which I have medically diagnosed with a disability and the other one I question. I am also a single mom, trying to finish my second degree, and I recently took a job that will pay well but I am going to miss my babies.

My daughter (Gracelyn) was diagnosed at 18 months with multi-system developmental disorder (which is a form of autism). In the last few months she was also diagnoses with sensory processing disorder, and a eating disorder. I am at a lost sometimes with her. I don't really have anyone supportive I am able to talk about my daughter with. I don't have anyone telling me that I am doing the right things for her. I get a lot of the negative that maybe I am being to aggressive or pushy with her treatment plan. I have also seen HUGE results of how much she has changed in the past six months to. So to see a benefit and to want more for my daughter and being pushy I don't see it being a bad thing.

Hi Angela,

I'm new to Autism myself but both my daughter and my husband were diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome recently.

We are being very stern and point blank with a lot of people about the reality of raising a child on the Autism spectrum, so I'm sending you hugs. G-d I feel like people are just raising their eyebrows and asking what we did wrong.

I hope you can find support here. There are a lot of really knowledgeable moms here.
