DD (Jan 08) has ALWAYS been a cryer. Right from the beginning.
Right now she is screaming away because of this conversation.
Ash: "Mama, I wanna go on a train and a plane to Thailand today"
Me: "We can't go today, but we will go back to Michigan (we are in Germany) in a few more weeks"
Ash:" Getting ready to let me have it... (I wanna go today) Then it starts. It has only been 10 minuets since her last melt down.
Me: " I understand that you want to go today, I would really like to go today too. I want to see X, Y and Z."
but we have to wait for your brother and sister to get out of school because they want to go too."
Now it really starts. Uncontrollable Screaming which is starting to drive me NUTS... It makes me soooo angry with her.
She cries about everything. If I start singing the wrong song, If I don't say ok after she says "ok Mama" She totally flips out if I don't try something she wants to stick in my mouth like a booger for example or meat (I am vegetarian)
The meltdowns are horrible. She cries if you console her, she cries if you leave her alone (although they don't last near as long if she is left alone) Sometimes I just need to leave her alone because I feel like I am going to loose it with her.
It is not even 10 am here right now and she has had 3 major melt downs today.
I have asked for help from our doctor, I have gone to a Oestopath, they think I am nuts... Of course she is the sweetest little girl when we are with strangers... No one believes me.
From birth on I have always thought something is not right. She cried up to 9 hours a day as a baby. I even bought ear plugs because I have tinnitus and it was making it much worse.
I need help on how I can better deal with her meltdowns. I feel like I am drowning in her breakdowns and I need someone to throw me a life saver.
Please someone help...
