I've had this conversation IRL and ended feeling really hurt and upset. But I'll try again cause I think I've toughened up enough.
What upset me was a friend who suggested that I boiled my child's brain. Yes, that's possible. I spent two weeks on vacation when I was (unknowingly) about 8-10 weeks pregnant, practically living in the hot tub. Ok, so that's possible
, I suppose. Is it not (at least) just as likely that he is just simply geneticly this way, seeing that a good portion of his relatives are neurologically diverse, some very clearly having struggled in the same was as him? maybe? Or maybe I'm at fault for boiling his brains. The unfortunate things is that after hearing this theory I searched the Internet and found plenty of people with "facts" to back it up. I walked around believe this garbage for a long time.
I mean, I'm not saying hot tub exposure left my child completely unharmed, but he is who he is, I didn't make him that way, yk?
