First I want to just say that I'm brand new. I've been reading for a while and I'm not quite ready to share our experiences yet. But I do have a sort of venty question... What if my child had cancer instead of mental health and behavioral issues? Would the doctors ask what I did to cause the cancer? Would I be left at home with no assistance, and be expected to cure the cancer on my own? Obviously the answer is a resounding NO. In fact, if I didn't seek treatment for child's illness, I would be in big trouble. I've even seen cases where parents have lost custody over failure to get treatment for physical illness. I guess I just can't imagine any other health crisis where I would be expected to single-handedly manage my child's health, except when it manifests as behavioral. Thanks for letting me get that out and thanks for sharing your stories. I just want to shout from the roof tops I AM NOT ALONE! Back to reading.
