Mom's of Special Needs Children- Are you out there?

I sit here tonight wondering, "Why is it so difficult to connect with other mothers of children with special needs or people with disabilities?"  For six months now I have been typing away at my blog.  I have tried to provide helpful information and share what I can.  I have been searching the world wide web for others like me.  I have joined groups and commented on sites I have seen.  I have often noticed that on group sites most of the members haven't posted in years. 

  • Where did they go?
  • Why did they go? Is it because they were also having troubles connecting?
  • Did blogging not help to learn, share, grow and release as I hope it will?
  • Am I one of only a few active members?

For years I avoided other mothers like me.  I believed that my life was filled with so much to handle, that hearing stories from other mothers would push me over the edge. I feared they would say something they experienced that could very well become our experience. Even now I stay clear from indepth conversations on medical challenges faced.  I can't help but wonder, "Is this why? Am I expected to bare my soul and everything there is about our lives?"  

So I have to ask, "Are you out there?" 

I must send a thank you to the person who sparkled my last post. I'm glad you like it and glad you're there.
