Don't spend a lot of time imagining the worst case scenario. It rarely goes down as you imagine it will and if by some fluke it does, you will have lived it twice.
Isn't that so true? I think worrying comes with the territory when you're the parent of a kid with special needs. There are no guarantees for the future - for health, for self-care, for cognition, sometimes even for life itself. But, are there any guarantees for any of us? Of course not. What good is it to worry? I believe happiness is a choice and sometimes I have to choose to be happy. Stressing about Elijah's future isn't good for any of us. Besides, I'd rather live the good moments twice, wouldn't you?
