Tired of the medical field and everything else
I am exhausted, my 12 year old son has had the worst weekend and I just want to cry for him. His meds arent working, he isnt sleeping, he isnt getting any of his class work or homework done, he is emotional, and sad, and he too is exhausted. And now he is having headaches. We have been to so many doctors over the years, I just called his current one to set up an appointment, but right now I am just wondering why…she will ask me what I want to do….and I have no clue. She will say should we increase the meds? ( we can but then he is drowsy thru all of his classes) we can change meds…oh? is there a new one we havent tried? And then she will shrug and say I dont know….
We have been thru so many doctors at this point I want to scream. I feel like the ineffective mom wringing her hands in the corner…just venting I guess.
