Another night of no sleep. Up every 30 minutes all night long. If I pick her up she will generally go back to sleep in my arms (sometimes she nurses, sometimes not). If hubby responds she gets hysterical and won't go back to sleep for awhile (until I get up and hold her). Thank y'all for the prayers.... I'm sure God has a reason for all of this it's just hard right now to imagine what it is when I just want to have a meltdown.View Thread
I've taken her to the pediatrician a lot and I've Googled and read a ton but we have not been able to figure out why sometimes she sleeps a few hours at a time and other times she doesn't. Sometimes we think it's gas but gas meds don't seem to help. She never sleeps great but some nights are certainly better than others. She was super unhappy this evening (teething maybe, I have no idea!) so I gave her ibuprofen. Hoping it helps! Thank yall so much for the prayers--- they seem to help more than anything else!View Thread
I took Wellbutrin years ago and it did help me and as a result while I was on it my SH. But it gave me bad headaches so I had to stop taking it. Medications affect people in different ways. If you think it's causing an increase in your feelings of SH then it's definitely something you need to discuss with your doctor.View Thread
No sleep last night. She was up every 30-40 minutes all night long with her longest stretch of sleep being just over 1 hour long. I wish I knew why some nights she can sleep in 3 hour stretches and some nights she can't. Tired....View Thread
She was awake a ton last night and from 1-3 a.m. she cried and didn't want to go back to sleep. Up one last time at 5:30 but then she (and I) slept in until 7:45. Wow that felt good given that she is ALWAYS up by 6!View Thread
Have you tried specifically asking them not to bring it up? Ask that they agree to disagree on the subject and to just drop it? Since she went to the ER she should understand how severe it is and how she wouldn't be able to function either if she had them regularly. But obviously she doesn't get it and you're right, they won't ever get it. So they need to be told just to drop it. Or told that it's okay to ask if you've gotten a job but it's not okay to say hurtful things to you about it. I'm really am sorry. People can be so judgmental and hurtful sometimes. View Thread
