My ten year old daughter has always been an anxious girl. She is a great girl, loved at school, makes good grades. She developed horrible anxiety about three months ago. Her anxiety attacks have became so severe. She also developed severe OCD symptoms about a month ago. She now believes that all of her foods might have a trace of peanut in them (she is allergic) she is afraid to eat anything. She has lost 70 pounds since August. She was very overweight then. She is still losing weight. They wanted to hospitalize her Tuesday night, but she didn't meet criteria because she hadn't been on her med increase long enough. She is taking Paxil 20mg, Buspar 20mg, and Vistaril 50mg twice daily. She has developed this hyperventilation syndrome where she does this fast breathing thing ALL DAY. It is so frustrating to listen to.
She is still afraid of all foods. Is living on lots of Ensure right now. Her meds have seemed to help a little bit so far (just increased them a few days ago) Her psych. seems to think she will soon come out of this crisis.
I am so scared. I want her to EAT. I want her to be okay. I want my little girl back. I cry everyday. I wake up fearful that the day will get worse and I'll have to let her go to a hospital without me. It kills me!!! I am 35 weeks pregnant to boot and taking care of other little ones.
This current crisis started on the 31st of December when MY mother left with a man she met on a gaming website and moved in with him. This is coming from a woman who has been married for 33 years to my father, owned a home, etc. She just up and left. We couldn't find her. Filed missing persons. Finally located her. She is acting so weird, drinking, going to bars. The man she is with is violent and controlling. We can't do anything. My ten year old was REALLY close to her and is taking it soooooooooo hard, hence the current crisis.
I really need support. If you can write me back or if there is someone who wants to be my phone friend when I get down and need to talk? Do you think my daughter will ever "be back"?? I just want my girl back. I am so depressed over this. It is taking over my life. If anyone will talk with me or wants to be my phone friend to get me through this, please pm. I used to have my mother to talk to, now she won't speak to me. She was my best friend
My mother is now mentally ill, living in New York with some crazy crazy man that we don't even know.
