ww told to quit playing the disability card!
 
I was on another forum for like a year and a half. Every time I mentioned that both my kids have disabilities a couple people got on and told me to stop playing the disability card! OMG! Really?! I wasn't looking for sympathy or playing any card. Just stating a fact and talking about them in general. I'm glad I found DS. I found mommies that have kids who aren't perfect and would understand a vent about my life being crazy with constant appointments and case managers and physical therapists and such.

Ugh! Sorry you've had that experience. I've found this board to be really supportive, so I hope you do too. :)

I know what you mean. I have a daughter with cerebral palsy and son with Asperger's.
Worse is the looks I get and comments made that I shouldn't have had kids (I am in wheelchair as well).

That is crazy! If you have a child wit special needs it is difficult and they should be supportive. I don't have any children with disabilities right now but Microcephaly runs in my family and i know that there is a possibility that i may have a child with this disability.TyAndCheyMommy that is horrible that someone would tell you that. Im sorry to both of you for meeting such horrible people, they should spend some of that energy helping or supporting people. They might come to realize that they could make a difference, or even some friends!

People who don't have children with disabilities truly don't understand how much of your life it is, if that makes sense. Some people are just dumb, mean, or both! ;)

People can be real jerks. I'm sorry that you had to deal with garbage like that.

:hugs: sorry mama! After almost 4 years of motherhood I found myself being very lonely - as soon as I would need some help. It is so hard to be a good mom, but instead of support, understanding and help you seem to get judgements and "advises":yuck:
