    Thats so good of you that you’re going to see a psychiatrist! I could give lots of advice but I don’t know your situation well.. If you can, talk to a coach. Maybe the one you talked to before? Also, being so tired.. I so know how you feel! I really need to learn (been trying for 5 years now haha) to take good care of myself. Don’t rely on medicine, its only there to help you think clearly and focus.. Not to replace your energy. Maybe take a step back and take a break for a while and figure out where your energy is being drained? Haha here I go giving advice again.. Well, hope you finf what you need!

    Hm, thats tough! I kind of ‘get’ her behavior, I feel like I’ve been there too. To me feels like she doesn’t want to do some thing (fear of…) but once she’s in class, she has no choice but to accept the situation. Thats what happened to me anyway. Could you talk to her, ask your daughter what scares her about going to school? Maybe create a no judgement zone so she’ll feel safe talking about what’s bothering her? If she can’t seem to explain, is there anything in her playing school at home that might give you a clue as to what might be the problem?

    Hi, I’m sorry to hear about your struggles. Honestly, I agree with your psychiatrist about three danger of substance abuse, I have seen it but too often BUT there’s other meds that are not stimulating that would totally help! Have you tried antidepressants for example? My aunt uses those and they have the same effect for her as stimulants do for other people. Also, is there a coping therapy group somewhere near you? I joined one and it has been most helpful. Be blessed, hopefully you’ll get what you need soon!
