I honestly don't think I have ever felt so lost and adrift. My older children all had their own issues but NOTHING like this. My 7yr old daughter was a easy child until she started kindergarten....then it was as if the entire world exploded. She began fighting bedtime, fighting school, fighting me leaving to work.... It got so bad she tried to climb out of a moving vehicle. I called everywhere, begging for help because I had no idea what was happening or what to do. My husband and I were at odds with the stress. I ended up leaving my job and changing to online college courses vs face to face so I could be there. She was diagnosed with Separation Anxiety Disorder, that was 2 yrs ago. She has been on risperidol, zoloft and now clonidine. Over the past two yrs I've had to leave school completely. My husband and I are constantly stressed with finances and the battleground our home has become. We're currently trying to work her into a public school. In the past few weeks it seems that it has gotten even worse....the meltdowns are almost daily sometimes. My husband works 2nd shift and I am with her 24hrs a day 7 days a week. When he gets home she's asleep and the battle is already over. When she gets up he's asleep. It feels like it is ALWAYS mommy time. I KNOW I don't always handle it right. I am so frustrated and frazzled right now I find myself yelling back at her which only makes things worse. I start out calm and try to remain that way but I just don't know what to do anymore. I hear myself and think "WHAT are you doing? This isn't helping" I can't take the constant stress. I don't know where to turn and who to talk to. I feel like I'm failing her and I don't know how to make it right.
