I feel very Guilty when i wish my son was normal like everyone. I know i shouldnt complain as his abnormalities are far from rare and not as bad as most kids who are special but i cant help wonder why it all happened when ive never had a problem with anything in our family. Its not a hassle or anything and i love love him so so much but i feel sorry for him and i cant fix it. I even wonder if he knows i love him. Does he feel really sad when i leave him to play so i can do house work. What if im the only one who loves him?

  • I would suggest you join a support group. Groups can offer support, advice and friendship.

    • yes even just online! it will be therapy for you


  • Such wonderful, heartfelt replies to your post.


  • we all worry about our children


  • Just love your son and give him a good upbringing. Don’t feel guilty when you have to get stuff done. I’m sure others will love him too. Sometimes us mother’s worry too much.We all worry about our children’s happiness and futures. There’s a plan for your little boy, you just don’t know it yet.


  • What you’re feeling is completely normal. You’re not alone! We ALL look at other people and only manage to see how their lives are ‘better’. But we forget that everyone’s life is also a little worse than ours/our loved ones in some way or another. Your son will find his own way in the world and it probably won’t follow the mainstream rules, but I’m sure he’ll find contentment on his own path. I agree with finding a support group or other people who are in a similar situation. Good luck.


  • It is normal to feel this way i guess although I cannot say I truly understnad your feeling. hope it gets better


  • It’s quite common to have a child with special needs, we have one and also 3 mainstream children. Try to find a support group that caters to his disorder or disability by googling to talk things over with the other parents and don’t feel guilty or wonder why your son is “different”. – it just happens sometimes.
