004 | Bargaining and Grieving the Child You Thought You Were Going to Have

Have you ever thought to yourself that you would give ANYTHING to cure your special needs child? Would you do anything to take their suffering away? Do you ever regret certain choices you have made or thought you have obviously done something wrong to deserve a child who is sick?

In this episode, I talk about bargaining and grief. When you bargain, it’s your way of trying to gain control of the situation. It makes you irrational and miserable because it never leads to anything but pain.

This is part of the course having a child with neurological differences. You love your child so much that you would give your life to make it better for them. But what if that isn’t the path for them? What if you embraced them exactly the way they are right now? Does that mean you don’t stop trying to help them? Nope, it sure doesn’t.

I mentioned in this episode a couple things.
