If we hadn’t had two really good days in a row prior to yesterday I probably would be throwing myself a pity party.
Yesterday was just not good.
Today will be better.
We have an early appointment to see an allergist today for Aly but she was refusing to go yesterday. So I tried to call yesterday to cancel it but had missed the office hours. Have been trying them this morning but they don’t open until 8am, which is when our appointment was. They also won’t let you leave a message.
I am at the point that if Aly doesn’t want to do what needs to be done to find out what is causing her excema and to follow the doctor’s instructions for taking care of it then I really don’t see what else I can do. She is as tall as me and is solid. I can’t/won’t man handle her to get her to go or to put on her cream or lotion. She hates that she has this but she won’t do what needs to be done and that just blows my mind. She thinks that because she has the hydrocortisone cream that she will be fine now. I have told her that once she runs out it will come back again because all it does is push it back into her body. If she would see the allergist we might find a solution to the problem. If she has an allergy we can work to avoid whatever it is and if she doesn’t then we would look at other treatments.
So, I wasn’t going to get up at 5:30am to get littles ready, deal with a grumpy 9yo and have to get myself ready only to have her refuse to get out of bed. And yes, I empathized, tried to help her with any fears or worries she might be having etc. She chose the challenging roller coaster and I am choosing not to ride.
Ok, I am off to do some laundry before the mountain explodes out of the laundry room and tries to take over the house.
