I have discussed my daughter Emmah's issues on previous posts...and I hate to over due it, but I also want to share my story. Let another mom know they are not alone, there are others like her out there. Others who know exactly how she feels, what she is going through and give her someone to talk to.
I have always been one to keep these things to myself, for fear of embarrassment, but I have nothing to be embarrassed about. I haven't done anything we are just dealing with an issue bigger than ourselves.
We know that she has ADHD, but there is something else going on. She has extreme anger issues, and can get very aggressive. But then the next minute she is sweet and remorseful. Underneath she means no harm and doesn't mean to hurt anyone. She has always had those terrible temper tantrums where she cries for hours...and you just don't know what to do. I have had doors open on cars, while it was moving, my hair pulled out in chunks, and been called countless names. But deep down she is a lovable, precious, funny little girl that I LOVE very much.
I am hoping that as we start on this journey to dig deeper into what is going on and start looking for more answers we find some and along the way become closer as a family.
What I am praying for:
1. Understanding for those around us when things don't go as planned.
2. Some answers on what is going on with Emmah.
3. Insurance issues to be resolved.
4. Emmah to be willing to help make some changes.
