Hello I have 17 year old twins my son has no problems but my daughter has a learning disability along side some very complex medical conditions. I find it very hard sometimes with the reactions of other people towards my daughter and over the years she has been a victim of hate crime along with being bullied she stuggles to understand the world around her and why people can and are nasty to her when she has done nothing to anyone. Thank you for taking time to read this as when its a bad day you feel very alone

    Hi Golfjay,
    Sounds like you have your hands full! I know what you mean about the reactions if other people being hard to deal with - my 14 year old son doesn't notice it himself, when people stare he just smiles waves because he doesn't understand why they're staring! (Wheelchair, dysmorphic features, SLD etc). Hopefully this will be downers you can come and vent every so often to people who know what you're on about!
