Building Your Special Needs Mom Tribe

How do you build your mom tribe? What a question right? Making friends after 30 feels impossible. And then add in a child with special needs and it feels even more impossible. You can’t leave your house. You are perceptually exhausted. No one you know has a child with special needs. It feels like you can’t relate to anyone anymore. I get it.

Take a listen as I discuss why it is hard to find friendships and maintain them when you have a child with special needs and how I am trying to overcome it. It’s so important. I can’t even tell you how wonderful it is when you find a person that understands exactly what you are going through. You will talk for hours. You will become instant best friends. You will feel relief that someone finally understands and can relate to what you are going through.

It’s amazing when it finally happens. But getting there is hard.

Take a listen.

Finding Cooper’s Voice is a safe, humorous, caring and honest place where you can celebrate the unique challenges of parenting a special needs child. Because you’re never alone in the struggles you face. And once you find your people, your allies, your village….all the challenges and struggles will seem just a little bit easier.

I miss friends, community, bbq’s with friends much more than I will admit to people. I was also so traumatized by my initial attempts at hanging out with friends and the chaos and destruction and embarrassment that followed , that I stopped taking my son anywhere at all. But my husband and I are social and it’s really taking a toll being on the outskirts of society all the time. And I also don’t want to educate people on this. I don’t like telling strangers and people I barely know the medical history of my kids just so that they get a possible temporary pass on behavior. It sucks and I feel like I’m invading my kids privacy by doing that, yet it has to be done bc otherwise well meaning people are lost as to why they act so different. Sigh, I don’t know the answer, but I am encouraged to try Facebook. I currently don’t have a page bc I don’t need yet. Another thing, but maybe it’ll help ? Read Less

When my son was first diagnosed with autism no one was talking about it. Autism was hidden. I vow to change that.
