Monkey is on day 5 of her SUPER LOW dose of Zoloft to control her extreme problems with her Panic Disorder and anxiety. I could be faking myself out, but I swear that I have already seen a reduction of panic attacks. Now, she is still getting them, but when we talked tonight about her getting her things together for school tomorrow, she did not freak out!
Whatever the reason for the reduction of panic attacks, I hope it continues. I keep reminding myself that the empty shell of a what my child once was, will soon begin to refill itself and shine. She has stopped screaming out in the middle of the night and was even able to discuss our "game plan" for tomorrow. I spoke with the social service worker at her school, who has surprised me with her amazing interest in helping Monkey. She is helpful and has even made time to sit and discuss what has been going on with Monkey and her progress. Finally I feel that someone at the school is being an advocate for what my daughter needs.
I feel confident and hopeful for what tomorrow brings, but will also prepare for the worse.
