Some days he cries all day. He's in pain. There is nothing to be done. He just cries and cries and cries and there is nothing I can do about it. My head hurts my heart hurts and my daughter doesn't know what to do. He has another MRI tomorrow, if I were to take him to the hospital right now they'd be like "why are you here?". It's always something. I feel like I wake up in the morning anxious to go back to sleep, just waisting time until another day ends. I can't make him happy and if I don't try I feel like I'm a terrible person. How do you do it?
Right now it's him, but if it weren't it'd be her. They are both physically handicap and have chronic pain. I guess I should be grateful today that I'm not getting double teamed.

Oh, doll, I have walked a mile in your shoes, & they suck sometimes. Definitely search around for a better pediatrician- I've gone through 2 in my DD's 3 years. I finally found one who isn't scared to treat her & isn't afraid to be honest with me. Do try & find someone to watch the kids for a while, even if it's just an hour a day. It's amazing the difference that can make for your outlook! You come back feeling recharged, even if all you did was watch tv. A good place to start looking would be the local social services office- they should have a list of sitters or organizations that can help you. And as for your DH, he's probably just hating seeing you upset & stressed all the time. Once you find a sitter you trust, try spending an hour a week just spending time with him- DF & I walk the dog together & talk. It's nice to get some one on one time again! Hugs, doll, PM me if you like!
