Diagnosis (68/365)


“To confess ignorance is often wiser than to beat about the bush with a hypothetical diagnosis.”

SUBJECT: Diagnosis

Memory is a funny thing, filtering out things it doesn't want to - or can't - deal with. I requested a copy of Cam's psychiatric records from when he was 6. Although I distinctly remembered the Asperger's diagnosis, I was completely blindsided by the Oppositional Defiance Disorder diagnosis. I've spent the last 8 years in denial - denial so strong I had erased all memory of it.
