Hey there.

Yes you.

I get you. I am a Medical Mama just like you. I share the same concerns and stress that you do. I worry about the future as much as you do.

I worry about how my child will be treated as he gets older, just as much as you do. I worry whether he will ever call me by my second name, mommy, just as much as you do.

Along with the worry I feel as lonely as you do. I have lost friends since the birth of our warrior and I guess I can’t blame them. What do you say to a mom with a special needs child?

Yet, I can’t help but feel hurt.

I hear the awkward silence when I tell strangers how old my child is, just as much as you do.

I feel the stares, just as much as you do.

I hear the questions forming in their head before they even say them, just as much as you do.

So to the Medical Mama who feels lonely, I get you. I may be on the other side of the world, but I am here for you.

I am here for you when you need a shoulder to cry on. I am here for you when need to kick or scream. I am your confidant. I am in your corner.

The biggest thing I have learned by being a Medical Mama is that I have wonderful and special friends, just like you.

Sincerely,

Jennifer

  1. I can’t imagine what you go through on a daily basis and I’m sure people are so judgy. I know it isn’t remotely the same, but my mom has taught the special needs class in both elementary and high school since I was a teenager. It definitely gave me a new respect for them and their parents.

  2. I just have to say that I think that you seem like an incredible momma who does so much for your kids. I love that you’re taking the time to reach out to others to let them know that they are not alone.

  5. What a beautiful blog post. And how awesome are you to reach out to other medical mamas to let them know you are there for them. It has to feel good knowing there is someone who is willing to listen or provide help when it’s needed.

  6. This as beautifully written! I cannot relate, but at the same time I can feel the passion throughout. Sometimes all someon needs is to know they aren’t alone.

  7. This is a beautiful letter! You brought tears to my eyes at the hurt that others inflict on you! You are not alone you have your blogging community!
