Today I saw something that made me think, and realized I have to practice what I preach. Ugh.
And I get that people may very well have the opposite opinion. That's ok.
Can you tell I hate stirring the pot? sigh.
And I felt...uneasy.
I get it, I do, the fear parents have when one has NF, the knowledge that even a parent with a mild case can have a child with a more severe case. I have that t-shirt in blue, pink, and purple. And I understand, heck, I work very hard to fund research to make NF NOT destroy my children. We’ve had some close calls in this house. Really close.
When G’s friend pins her latest nail polish design on Pinterest, we see a hugely styling and creative kid, not NF.
All of these children…well, that’s what I see. That’s my perspective.
Thanks—I know folks may vehemently disagree with me, and I respect that. I hope that folks can respect this perspective too.
