complicated grief with living special needs child
By June 17 at 11:56 pm 322 4
I have a 10 1/2-year-old special needs daughter who functions at about an 18-month-old level who is undiagnosed. Since she has some facial dysmorphic features, the doctors we've consulted with seem to think it's genetic in origin. I have been grieving the loss of my very-much-wanted "typically-developing" child since her birth. I've been in therapy for years and have been taking Lexapro 20 mg. for a few years now. These help, but I'm still unhappy and at times quite despondent. Anyone out there have a similar experience?
