I put up a huge wall of denial. It was years before I was able to break through it... accepting that your child has a disability, especially one like LD that cannot be seen or easily diagnosed, is one of the hardest things to come to terms with.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
Never give a sucker an even break.
