My daughter has an appointment with the psychiatrist at the end of this month. Her therapist seems to think that she needs medicine for her severe anxiety. And possibly medicine for her very poor attention span and innability to concentrate.
I don't know ladies. I need help with this one. I am so torn. I don't want her suffering...but the idea of a seven year old on meds just feels so wrong to me. I mean, she can't even swallow pills yet!
I guess the appointment hasn't even happened yet. Maybe the doctor won't even prescribe her anything. I just have a lot of experience with psychiatrists myself, and I doubt it.
I guess part of me is sad that she seems to be turning out like me. I wouldn't wish my experiences on anyone. I always thought that she would be fine and would never end up ill herself. :(
Anyone btdt? Any words of wisdom or encouragement?
