You guys...

If I'm not responding to my comments it's because I feel... embarrassed.

I am not brave, I am not strong, I am not amazing.

I alternate between insane optimism and resigned dread.

I am not the Super-Mom of a Special-Needs Child, I am the "So, how do we cope today?" type.

I am pushing forward because the only way out is through.

Still. It's warm and fuzzy to feel believed in though.

just because you are insanely optimistic and resigned with dread doesn't mean you aren't brave/strong/amazing. they are not mutually exclusive and despite your embarrassment, true just the same. perhaps you have no choice but to be strong and cope, but there it is. so says yer baji. now shut it and accept the praise and support and love heading your way. :D
