Now change the words “High levels of anxiety” for ‘Cerebral Palsy’
CAMHS – Case now closed. Report letter written and seen by parents. Cerebral Palsy. Recommendation made that parents seek support for their cerebral palsy. The Boy senses their cerebral palsy and so gets cerebral palsy too.

Right….read all that? Too much? I usually am. But i am totally screwing at the actual blind-sightedness of these people. I cannot understand for one second why they would struggle to take on board my partners very own difficulties as potential GREEN LIGHT for what is going on with our son. Yeah, genetics. It’s a no brainer. PDA.
My own anxiety has been compounded beyond belief in recent dealings with this kind of ignorance and essentially disability discrimination. I have a diagnosed mental health condition brought on largely in my adolescence, it has come to the forefront of late due to the stresses we live under. Is this truly something that CAMHS would like to take me on about? To suggest that it is our doing that our own disabilities are causing the situation / causing our son harm? To suggest for a moment that i have passed on my mental health disorder to my son, WHAT THE EFF?
Our personal anxieties are born out of perfectly reasonable-reason, much of which can be attributed to our environment and upbringing, however, my partner has a neurodevelopment disorder fuelled by anxiety and that can not be dismissed here as, us, simply needing to deal with our own shit first. HA! What the flying effing gitswine?!
….Oh and yeah, we have to two children. The second one is a different kind of a child. So clearly, we have broken The Boy but the Toddler Tank got away scot free. How cruel and insensitive of our disabilities to cause so much crap for one child to damage him for good, and yet the other gets off pretty lightly. Except for the fact that he doesn’t…he is assaulted every.single.day. by The Boy’s ‘anxieties’. But no, it’s pure aggression and lack of interpersonal skills and empathy that are causing the second boy Toddle to be knocked from pillar to post, so, that’s our fault too..
