This is kind of a vent/ support/ advice/ offer your experiences kinda thread
I have 2 kids. E has just turned 2 and J is almost 10 months. Both are severely hearing impaired and have been since birth. They both wear hearing aids. With this comes Early Intervention (2 days a week) hearing appointments, hearing tests and a lot of work at home.
Now as if that doesnt keep me busy enough. Since starting solids at 6 months J has developed eczema in reaction to food allergies. He is highly allergic to egg and also but not as bad wheat. So shopping is getting more expensive and Im having to bake a lot of foods for the wee man.
This is the bit that has knocked me. Our very trusted paed has referred E to a clinical psych to be assessed for ASD. I seen her on my own and she is concerned and wants to see E to do a full developmental check and and ASD assessment. E and J's teachers are also both concerned about her over all development.
Im just beginning to struggle a little. We have such a full on life and Im just left feeling like F me whats gonna happen next!
And if one more person says Im lucky because it could be worse Ill lose it!!
