The diagnosis limbo is the hardest of them all to weather and people’s judgements are just so severe, from suspecting bad parenting to suspecting abuse etc.. But, you have to stand strong and non of this is your fault. You did the best you can. you are also continuing to do the best that you can. Your daughter sounds like my son.. I was just thinking about my own guilt today walking in the park. I’m glad you are writing about this. Please use your platform to write more so that you can educate people more about what it means to have a high need child! It’s one of the most misunderstood topic in parenting. A high need child can really be so difficult to take care of that it’s as if you have a child on the spectrum. Some kids are lucky and they grow out of this.. but some kids will end up being diagnosed very late at age 9 or 10 for a known disorder. Managing all of it in the dark is both painful and exhausting! Well done, mama!
