Your child’s future is always your concern
Since my son was diagnosed of having a developmental disorder or Autism, there was no days that completely come to pass without thinking about his future. So many questions had filed up inside my mind and all of it ends to a single question ” What is the future might hold for him?” I love my kid I guess that is how a parent suppose to feel and knowing that my son’s development disorder will surely leave a large impact in his life if he cannot get out of his condition.
Treatment would surely help , but can it cope with him as he grows older? Several more years he would be leaving his childhood stage and beginning to enter a new life as teenager just like any other kids have.
Craving for new things , feeling excite for new adventure and start to feel something different towards the opposite gender. All of these are part of growing up and everybody for sure has their own story to share someday. The question hangs and still the same. What would be his future?
Certainly after diagnosis, the first emotions that sweeps over me as his parent is absolute fear and panic. For some people it is an overwhelming feeling that numb inside or unable to cope with frightening level of intensity. There are times it is hard to talk to someone about these issues, mostly I was finding ways not to make my relationship with my wife so stressful because of the issues.
Some parents find that their fear turns into uncontrollable, immobilizing panic or non- stop crying . Depression is not a normal response but expect to feel depressed at times. It is unwise in my own opinion if this depression goes too long, everything would get affected and it is hard to cope with.
Feeling down and depress but not giving up.
We all want our child to live a happy and fulfilling life. Sometime I could imagined my son be more like any other kids. I see him playing and doing work he enjoys. Be able to say lots of things about himself like what he wants to be when he grows up, where he lives or where is he studying. In short, I imagined him that he can be able to communicate with his thoughts and feelings and being surrounded by people who respect him.
Those were only imaginations and it seems like a dream that may or may not happen. If it does then I would be the happiest father there is. I will not loose hope, not for my son for as long as I am standing I would be there by his side no matter what future that this life might bring for all of us. I guess that is what a father should do, be always supportive and provider for his family.
