I needed a quote on psychology … the title has minimal to do with the post.
I was asked / invited to write a post for the online version of Psychology Today, and it went up today! You can read it here. I want to thank Dr. Jennifer Baker for the opportunity! She hosts the blog over there called “For the Love of Wisdom – The logic of iambic half-lines.”
This post is for those new readers who come from the link over there, my regulars, well, sorry but this will be boring. But do feel free to leave a comment on the article if you like.
My “name” is Single Dad, I am in my early 50’s and am the single parent to Pearlsky, my almost 20 year-old daughter. I am her primary care taker, we live together and she is still in the public school district. She is severely disabled, non-mobile, non-verbal, totally dependent, and loved incredibly. My son, David, is in a residential facility. Both have the same genetic disorder, first identified in them (the gene was identified with Pearlsky and my DNA). This blog is our story. Our life, focused around her.
Why am I anonymous? So I can say things. Things that only parents in our situation can understand. As I say in this post, I want to be anonymous because those who love us would not understand when I say that there have been times when I thought “if she does not make it out of the ICU this time, maybe that’s a good thing.”
