Stupid family drama
I don't usually share personal things on here but yesterday was one of those fleeing to Mexico days.
First off we have been having issues with my oldest which is pretty much ongoing. Teachers brought up AGAIN that she may be having petit mal seizures including an incident where she had basically amnesia about what was going on and was confused. Previously they kept hauling her in to the school security guard and accusing her of doing drugs. She stayed in the hospital a few days for tests back in May after an abnormal brain wave scan. Which showed nothing. She had full blown life threatening seizures that couldn't be stopped at 3 1/2 and was hospitalized and then on meds for several years. I do not want to have to walk on eggshells again thinking that may happen any moment.
My youngest has very obvious hyperactivity but is not on meds. I do not want to put her on meds. They have not helped family members in the past and have made things worse. Also if she has a heart issue which runs in the family it could be dangerous for her. I was born with a few heart rhythm defects and had scans associated w/long QT before (that is another fear with the oldest, the next step may be checking for heart rhythm defects). Anyway, my youngest pulled another dangerous stunt yesterday. She has no regard for consequences.
