Would any of you be willing to share your story with me? I haven't figured out how to PM yet, but did figure out how to check mine, if you aren't comfortable posting here.
I'm still really struggling with everything, and I need support. We had our intake appointment with EI/HMG, they were informative and we have an actual eval set for December 4th where a team of 2 ladies and the case manager will come and asses her. We got our paperwork for childrens of Dayton, but not yet for the cincy/behavioral clinic which is where HMG reccomended she be seen.
I'm still really stuck in a bad place, some days are easier than others, 2 days ago marked the first day I didn't break down. My husband is wonderful and supportive but sometimes I think he just doesn't get it. He says with a little help she will be fine....my take is with a LOT of help she will be the best she can be. He does work actively to engage her more but he works 2nd shift and isn't here that much, so typically its just me. I have reached out to friends and family but support has varied greatly. One of my friends made an innocent comment, just trying to segway into a conversation about her own child, but when she said "Wow, I'm glad our appointment went better than yours" (referring to the run around I got with childrens), I really didn't know what to say. Her child was going to the pediatrician for dry skin....my situation is just a tad different. Its like I have to put a filter on my whole life now just to get through the day.
I want to see my dtrs eyes light up when she sees her father, I want her to be around him or me not just when we are playing games or being loud and cartoony to try and get her attention. I know this is long and rambeling but please someone tell me this gets better....
