some said they don't tell cuz it is no ones business and to an extent ita. but don't you feel that the more it is talked about as a whole and some of the stigma of mental health was lessened that more might be done to help our difficult children? we are like an underground society that you don't know you belong to until someone else lets slip that they are in the same boat. i sometimes want to shout from the rooftops that my son has a mood disorder and no one is informed enough to help! or to some of the parents that are ready to critize instead of understand i would like to say "hey instead of condeming my'bad kid' how about praying for him to be well". if the law isn't allowing us to lockup our 'secret kids' anymore why should we still hide them. i guess it is my warrior mom personality and maybe i need to consider my difficult child's feeling right now but cuz he is so outwardly a difficult child i think a little understanding would go a long way.
