Just feeling really lonely today. Nobody else knows the diagnosis except my husband and a few medical professionals, not even all of them. Give me a shoutout if you can relate.

Yes it’s hard. Also anxiety producing and just plain lonely.

Davening especially. It’s easy enough to daven for a week or a month. Much harder when it’s decades.

I’m here with you too. It’s a lonely and isolating journey.

Yes, it's hard enough that the professionals have never heard of this condition. But it's harder still when you feel you cant share it with anyone.

I’m here too. My child is doing well today and people would never guess but in a way that makes it lonelier. And I worry about their future. It’s a very private and not discussed struggle.

I get you. Anyone else have a child diagnosed with Klinefelter ?
I searched imamother and it hasn’t come up.
It’s so hard because nobody knows besides my husband and I and the dr.

Facebook groups are a lifesaver in such situations.

I can relate. 2 of my kids and I both have a genetic disorder. There is no one doctor who specializes in it because it spans a lot of different areas, not just one. And even in the areas we need to treat, just about no one has heard of it. It's very frustrating.

I highly recommend joining facebook just to access the groups. If you don’t want people to know, make an account with a fake name. The resources, knowledge and support you get from fellow parents in the same boat is invaluable.

Here’s one that might be good for you https://m.facebook.com/groups/.....8569/

I think I know someone with this diagnosis
I can try to find out.
A good resource is Goldie turner- she has a database of people with rare diseases. She may have a match.
You can also email twacholder@agudah.org. She may be able to help too

Is there something keeping you from sharing with other people? Maybe it would help you feel better if you unload? Is this internal pressure (you don’t feel comfortable sharing) or because of some other reason? (Either is valid, just wondering if there’s a way to help ease your burden).
