Teaser Tuesdays: Left Neglected

Left Neglected by Lisa Genova p. 62

"Before yesterday, Charlie's inability to listen or follow the simplest instruction annoyed me but in the typical way that I think most kids annoy most parents. Now, a tidal wave of fear and frustration rises inside me, and I have to fight to contain it, to keep it from spilling out and drowning us all."

I am not a parent myself but I have enough friends who are that I can imagine what it must feel like, to have your kid, who you thought was only normally annoying, to go to being labelled abnormal: the terror, the frustration, the anxiety.
