Personally, I would not be able to live with myself if my child were internally decapitated because I FF before I had to.  I learned to force myself to tune out screaming by telling myself that they were safe and we would get to our destination in X minutes and pulling over to comfort them if absolutely necessary.  I would be much more distracted by the fear of their imminent death in even a small accident if they were FF before necessary.
  I had a friend named Misty in 6th grade and since then, I've thought it's the most beautiful girl's name.  DH wouldn't go for it.  The rest of my family would've been horrified (very conservative family, name-wise).  Except my grandmother, I know she liked it.  I will always wish it was DD1's name, it would suit her perfectly. Who cares what I think, I'm just the mother anyway!!!  /bitterness :lol:
  Her chrom. disorder is very rare but behavior doesn't seem to be a feature from what little we do know.  What is a CBT?  Hearing it got better for you after 6 gives me some hope!       She sleeps for about 10 hours a night (stopped napping when she was 2 but sometimes falls asleep on the bus on the way home) but yes, she does snore. She doesn't seem to have leg pain.  We've been to the ENT who recommended removing her tonsils but are awaiting the cleft palate clinic as...
Misty.  I'll probably use it for my next female cat or dog instead.  :(
And this doesn't even begin to touch what their SIBLINGS do to them every day. 
As you can see, these things happen to all of us.  I smacked DD1's head into a doorway HARD when she was 2 months old, DH had her on his shoulders at 9 months and bashed her into an overhang- awful, awful, awful. When she was 2 I was rushing to protect her from some boiling water and instead knocked her over and gave her a nosebleed.  I remember replaying those moments in my mind over and over and just cringing in disbelief and hugging my baby.  You have to let it go and...
I do them at my mother's house and it helps a lot- but there is a problem.  If the room is not basically child proofed, I am worried about leaving her there with the door closed.  However, if you stand anywhere near her, she uses "time out" as "attack time" and will become increasingly violent as you stand there trying to guard her.  This just escalates things.  So if I had a better idea of where to go I would.  You can't just make her stand/sit still- she won't do it,...
DD1 is 5, chromosome disorder, severe speech delay (receptive & expressive).    At home and school, her behavior is manageable.  She is a good kid!  She has her moments, and being delayed, sometimes feels like I'm dealing with a toddler instead of a kindergartener but I can handle that and we work through tantrums and normal childhood discipline issues.  Time outs have been very effective with her.  You can just SEE her thinking through and controlling herself when...
Exactly this time last year I was severely nauseous and vomiting frequently because I was about 6-7 weeks pregnant with DD2 who is now 4 months old.  This sickness was 24/7 and lasted four months (I know I'm lucky it didn't last the whole 9 months like it does for some!)  Accompanying this loveliness was also a very heightened sense of smell.  There was a smell to my kitchen and front hall area that was so horrible I could barely go near them except to run quickly...
I'm also hoping the ped endo will be helpful.  My older daughter was 3rd for height and 50th for weight until she started growth hormone.  No one (and we had every specialist in the book) ever implied her weight for height discrepancy was a problem and I wouldn't worry too much about that at this point.  Pediatricians unfortunately aren't often terribly helpful with kids who don't follow the norm.  Keep fighting for some answers.  good luck
