Hey Cynthia, this is a very relatable article for me. Thanks for putting my feelings and thoughts into words. I have had so many experiences like this. Here’s what I have come to learn...if your “friends” can’t put themselves in your shoes and understand where you are coming from, they are the ones who are “not good friend material”. This is perhaps a phenomenon that that is unique to moms who have children with disabilities - which is mostly likely why the ignorant people in the comments that precede me are so negative. So you know, you can contact me anytime if you need a friend 😉.
