    Looking for a community with other parents of kids with special needs

    I’ve just joined The Mighty family & would love to connect with other parents of children with special needs. I don’t know which groups are still active!

    We’re just in the process of an autism assessment with my 8 year old son.

    If you are also raising a child or children with special needs, I would love to hear from you! #SpecialNeeds #specialneedskids #SpecialNeedsParent #disabledchild #Autism #Autistic #autisticchild #parentmentalhealth

    Getting help #CheckInWithMe

    I want to reach out and get help for my bipolar disorder but I'm so scared because my dad is going through an episode also and I'm afraid to speak out but it's getting worse and worse. #CheckInWithMe #parentmentalhealth

    Feelings of despair

    Engaging in therapeutic self help can be painful, highly sensitive and make you question yourself. The road to recovery is one which can be messy and unwelcoming. It's important to remember we won't always find things we discover about ourselves easy to accept. Whilst I have willingly turned myself inside out trying to take control and examine my behaviours, whilst I feel like I hate myself more right now...I must be proud of myself and try not to dissociate and hide. I am taking responsibility for myself and I have a purpose, which is to figure this confusion and self doubt out, so that I may actively improve my underlying sense of despair, which so often holds me as a prisoner in my life. Recovery is not by any means a passive process. It has taken me 20 years to figure this out. My journey to recovery in some ways has therefore only just become. I thank all services and supports for keeping me going and alive up to this point. I can't go on any longer living with this. It's either do or die now. I love my children and I cannot leave them. So I must do this!
