My teen is very intellectual loves to read as well and has been thru HADES and back with my illnesses
Cait had learnt to flush and hook up IV at age 5
I basically could have been the above poster when it comes to her story........she is very emotional and stressed angry at her father for dying ..( diabetic and would not quit drinking) as he was never there for her and seeing me go thru what I do ........
Cait was put on AD's for a while and it did help her out it did not interfere with her school work in fact she was Valedictorian and went to Toronto Ontario as a Page in the Legislation for a month .......
There are times she would basically go into big panic attacks whilst shopping , or when she was away and found out I was with an outbreak again or had had my tx'x .......
Cait and I along with Doc had decided to take her off wean her and she would be fine .....had a rough few months she did to go thru and hence the AD's
She has lost her Dad ,Nan,Grammy.Grampy and a friend in last 3 yrs so death has not been a stranger to her either.......
She is and has vocalized that she is worried I am next BUT she is now okay and knows I am not going anywhere I will be here for her and that I am a fighter .........
Coping skills are the best for her.....reading.....breathing......playing board games and her friends as well as WE talk about everything
She also has an adopted sis from HW that is here at this moment that she really opens up to and gets stuff out to which helps
Rehab has asked you a few questions already about your daughter .......which are pertinent
My Cait is doing great now and we have moved from a town that I stayed in with SO MANY bad and sad memories for so long so both of us are less anxious and looking forward to new adventures new things to do together........
I wish you all the best as well as your daughter
