I have one of those!!! You describe it perfectly. I think it is expected. Carlee has been on meds for about 6 months and she has leveled off a little but we still have emotional days. B-6 was prescribe by our neuro...I think you kinda have to balance it between normal development, maybe just going thru a phase and meds. I set some boundaries for her and we just work thru it. My heart is with you.

my little boy has clonic seizures and vacant petty mals,which r the vacant ones,he is well controlled at the minute touch wood,when he 1st started having them we were in resus every other day,i know what u mean it changes your life,we never used to let him sleep by himself incase anything happened,it puts a huge strain on family life but i think it does get easier with time,my little boy has also been diagonosed with verbal dspraxia which affects his speach as when he had a big fit in the beginning he stopped speaking,so he now gets speech therapy everyday at school,he is quite behind with his school work and finds it hard to remember things,how is your daughter doing at school?u have just got 2 be strong 4 yourself and your little girl
