Isn't the social worker helping with your dtr? Sometimes with this disease I have had to just withdraw from the world and protect myself, but you can't do that because you still have to be a Mom. Is there nothing that will help her sleep all night? I know from my own life experience that when there is trouble with a child, all of a sudden its not the father's responsibility and Mom is left to deal with it, then be criticized if he thinks she did something wrong, so I know he probably isn't mature enough to help, he's a man after all, but tell him he has to have more interest in her life, she is 50 % his. Tell your dr. you need something for your "nerves" and tell him what's going on.
Natty... I sure hope you can get help for both of you. There is absolutly nothing wrong with having your child put on medications you know how it is living with someone with these disabilitys.And just as importaint HER DAD SHOULD BE IN THIS it is his child to talk to the lawyer about that not just when he gets a whim to see her.That was not the deal.absentee dads like mine was drives me nuts.In the mean time you have to get into your family doctor and start now writeing things down that you are going through and symptoms..as far as panic attacks when they start this works for me most the time.look at your stomach and if it is bouncing around you are breathing funny and bring them on..lay or stand there and check your self inhale slow and exhale slower 10 or so times and it resets my panic,,its worth a try dear..please stay in touch..Please if you have a case working that might be a start,and make sure you start on doctors Monday dear we care..Chuck1957 you don't need this..get the guy off his butt and tell him you can't deal with it alone. chuck
You didn't mention how old your daughter is. Early intervention is imperative to her learning future. I teach children with learning problems, believe me, nothing surprises me. You are doing yourself and your child an injustice by not taking every ounce of help there is out there. The sooner you do this, the more likely your daughter has a chance at a normal productive life. And you need to take care of yourself because she needs you! Make a doctor appointment and explain what is going on to your doc, he can even be of help in what direction to take regarding her. Please, keep in touch.
