Stress...

Wow.. so I've had quite the week... My daughter is having some serious issues.  I think it's all rooting from the fact that her dad just up and left and has had no contact for 2 months now.   She is having some serious temper tantrums...I mean these are no normal tantrums either... they're pretty bad and last for hours upon hours....  the longest lasted I believe 6 hours.. non stop until she fell asleep.


I'm not quite sure what to do about it anymore.. I've tried everything I can think of.. and I mean they are pretty bad.  I'm almost ready to get her some extra help.  I can get some free counseling through my work, and maybe if we did some family counseling that would help.

The other thing that isn't making matters any better is my step dad is in the hospital.  He has had some serious abdominal pain for the past 2 weeks... he hasn't eaten in a week because he can't keep anything down....his belly is seriously swollen.... and they're afraid his colon is going to burst because of the pressure.  They don't know what's wrong with him.. he's even had a few doctors come in asking him questions about it to learn more about what's going on with him.   It's kinda scary when a specialist has no clue what's wrong.

So as you can see I've been pretty stressed as well as my daughter, so that makes everything worse...I'm not sure what I'm doing anymore....

Oh wow, you have alot going on, hang in there!!! The moment you feel like your losing it you will Lose! This is when you kick into Super Woman mode, I would definitely reach out to outside help for your daughter, kids might seem little and all, but their brains process things completely different. You can luv her all day, but a therapist of some sort, can get her to open up on a different level. For your stepdad it sucks cuz there is nothing you can, but pray he gets better (hope i didn't defend you with religion). It will all work out, it's funny we learn how truly strong we are when the sh*# hits the fan!! You got this. :) www.happychaoticfamily.com

Wow, you have alot going on! First of all, I totally agree with seeking some professional help for your daughter. You're right, a 6 hour temper tantrum is not normal and it sounds like she's really hurting. As much as mama bear wants to make it all better, sometimes it takes someone else to get to the bottom of it. So follow your heart with that one. And I'm sorry to hear about your step-dad. I hope he is able to have some relief and the doctors figure out what's going on quickly.
