I am finally putting myself out there, reaching out and responding to other parents in support groups (online) for parents of children with LGS. I cannot honestly say why it has taken me so long to do this, though I think I have had a lot of stuff on my plate. Anyway, now I am doing it. I’m a little nervous, which is silly. It is almost like I’m afraid people won’t like me or won’t want to hear what I have to say. Really, if either is true, so what? They can ignore me. That’s just fine by me.
I guess it is just that it is remarkably hard for me to open myself up. Somewhat odd for someone with a blog, but it is hard for me to share personal details. This blog feels different to me. I welcome input but don’t get a whole lot – fine too 🙂 by the way. Actually, I think keeping this blog is helping me open up. I’ve been writing here for a while now and nothing dreadful has happened. It helps to have a place to vent, to share frustrations, and to share triumphs. With the support groups, I am hoping that it will help to talk to others in similar positions with similar experiences.
We shall see. Who knows…maybe I will make new friends. That would be lovely.
