Description

Navigating the healthcare system for a child with autism and learning disabilities is no easy task. Join me, Shannon Chamberlin, as I relay my journey of finding appropriate care for my son, battling with insurance and medical coding, and dealing with the lack of attention given to his condition. This episode is filled with real stories, frustrations, and revelations from my own experience.

Ever grappled with a dental visit gone awry? Or discovered a new behavioral disorder while seeking help for a loved one? Today, I'll share these narratives, and more. I discuss the discovery of Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and ponder whether autism should be categorized as an autoimmune disease. The trials of acquiring medical care for my son, despite his condition being a qualifying one for medical cannabis, has been a challenge, but it's one I'm willing to fight.

However, amidst all the hurdles, there are lighter moments that uplift us. I take you through the unique relationships my son shares with family members, as well as a surprising encounter with a heroin junkie. Even during the most arduous times, we've found humor and love. So, tune in, connect with our story, and find inspiration in our journey.
