. I was scared to go out and be with people but simultaneously afraid to be on my own. I never knew what would trigger a panic attack that could leave me in bed for days at a time.
So this diagnosis has hit me hard. They were diagnosed in September and I have spent the time since then scrambling to get a hold on the day to day challenges they/we now face. Dealing with the emotional impact it has had on the kids and helping them come to terms with life long sentence biology has handed them.
They say it takes a village to raise a child and recently I have found a village of people on social media. I have a group of girls that support and challenge me to be the best version of myself. I also have a community of people that have been invaluable in helping me deal with kids coeliac disease.
