hi soo since easy child moved out i've noticed a decrease in intake at mealtime with difficult child. she's def. shoving down any other junk she can find, minimal we had some for easter chocolate etc. yet she's stopped completing meals, two weeks ago complained of throat to me. i just listen i dont' react, than again last week one night, and again tonight to me. she said it's not like i'll stop eating or anything it's just well i think i need help again. I said why's that if your still eating? she said well i forget how to chew and it gets annoying lately my throats been getting dry and thats' why i chew quick and drink alot of liquids with each meal. which she does. this could just be anxiety increase due to easy child moving out, and hence throat again. attention seeking, event though now she's in the spotlight. i guess what i'm asking is maybe trying lamictal now wasn't such a good idea. i'm wondering how would you handle? i think just continuing to reassure her all's well, she doesnt' need help listening to her vent a bit is the right thing to do. things are intense right now, tutor times' increased so she has 2 hours per day of work. which for her is alot, easy child gone, hoping we'll graduate. thoughts?? yea i know who wants to go down this road again.............. sooo not me!!!!
