I realize that Elliott is struggling with anxiety but good lord, is it ever getting old.
I’m keenly aware that it’s far worse for Elliott but damn, it headache inducing and beyond frustrating. As time goes on, it gets worse and worse.
There has to be something I can do to provide him with relief.
Problem is, I don’t know what that something is. For now, I just continue to extend to him both compassion and understanding.
In truth, the whining is very quickly becoming like nails in a chalk board for me and I know Lizze is struggling with it as well. Heck, I know Elliott doesn’t di it in purpose, so it must be exhausting for him as well.
There is no way to really make our lives less stressful, at least at this point so I have to try and just absorb as much of it as I possibly can to avoid Elliott having to instead.
He’s already in therapy at least once a week and it no longer seems to be enough. As a last result, we must consider
the possibility that he may need helped by medications.
I hate the idea of Elliott being on medications but if it can provide him with a better, higher quality of life, it might be worth it.
At the Lost and Tired house, we never take medications lightly. We always do our research and only ever medicate when it’s in the best interest of that particular child.
Do any of you have experience with anti anxiety meds with your child, on or around the age of 5? Could use some advice.
