16-year-old son with CIDP

July 10, 2007 at 8:36 pm

My 16-year-old son was diagnosed over 2 years ago.

I wish he would spend a little time on this site–he could really use the support–but he doesn’t like to talk a lot about his illness–especially with other kids. He actually tells all his friends he has “back problems”!:p

My son often feels helpless & hopeless.

I hope that you are able to find the support you need from other kids your age. I’ll keep trying to get my boy to join in these discussion boards. (Maybe if there was a cute sixteen year old girl I could get him interested…LOL)
