I don’t want to go on forever about my kid, so I’m going to close this thread after this post. So, why did I do this? Why did I open up my private struggles for all the world to cringe over?
The truth is when some family members started avoiding us, and friends said “don’t come back.” I started to feel very alone. (Thanks to everyone who DID stand beside us through all of this)
But I knew that I WASN’T alone. I knew there had to be others out there struggling and having no idea where to turn.
I’m here telling you that you CAN take your life back. You just need to take that first step, and then dedicate yourself to it. Yes, I used one particular program. I’m not telling anyone to go out and buy the Total Transformation. There are other products out there. Do your research. Pick the one that’s right for you.
The big thing is DO SOMETHING NOW.
I can’t believe how quickly things changed. It was only a few months ago that I was collapsed of the living room carpet sobbing. It seems like a bad dream now.
I’d like to share a picture with you. This was taken when Littlest Dude was 3. He doesn’t even look like this anymore. It’s precious, isn’t it?
This picture always made my cry, because I remember this day. I had taken him so my husband and Dude #1 and Dude #2 could enjoy themselves at Disney World. I sacrificed myself, and I was miserable.
I bribed him to stop and take this picture with me, hoping it would be a wonderful memory. Instead when I looked at it on my wall, I knew it was a lie.
I don’t look at it as a lie anymore. I look at this picture with a gleam of hope in my heart. I actually have REAL moments like this with my child now. I feel love from him, and that love is returned.
I know we will have ups and downs, but doesn’t every family?
Normal, for the first time is six years, is in reach.
If you have a child with behavioral problems, get help. It will be the greatest gift you’ll ever give your family.
