I never hesitated for a second for my son.
I may have overemphasized my personal experience, but it was a long hard road to my diagnosis.
My wife initially thought I was projecting too much, but when she saw the difference that diagnosis and support made… she was a convert.
My son is doing well, and I attribute this to the fact that his challenge has a name and a game plan to attack the negative aspects of it.
I went through 21 years of frustration before I was given the game plan.
