i always thought my son had gotten lucky. he hadnt had any problems with his circumcision. he was "normal" for a circ'ed kid. I was young and didnt know any better or i would never had done it.
today at 15 he tells me all these feelings he had hidden inside. he has never trusted anyone for as long as he can remember, not even me. he has fears of trusting people. he feels alone and unloved. he has trouble being in a relationship. he has anger issues. he arges with everybody. there was more he said. but i cant remember all of it right now.
i doubt my son has ADHD and ODD now. i believe he has PTSD.
he was circ'ed in the hosp with prob no pain med. we lived in an busive house for his frst 6 mo. then when we left i was told to let him CIO which i did at 11 mo bc i could not get him to sleep in his bed. which the CPS worker told me he had too. (we were involved bc of foresaid abusive house).
i feel sick to my stomach to know how bad i let my son down. i can only hope i can find him peace. he sees his therapist tomorrow. should i give her a printout of the article showing a link between circ and PTSD? should i just write her a letter? he takes meds for ADHD and i think he might be better served with some treatment for PTSD not neccessarily meds.
