I only have one child and she's 4. I haven't been to a doctors office for myself since she was born because there's no one to watch her while I have x-rays and tests done, so I just don't go. Today I was extremely sick with the flu, went to the doctors office and she wouldn't behave so that I could fill out the paperwork, then when I FINALLY got it turned in she was fine until they called me for weight/blood pressure/temperature/and to draw blood she went hysterical. I was scolding her (making her stand with her nose to the wall) and some woman walked by saying that people like "her" (meaning me) didn't deserve to have children. That comment made me so mad that she better be glad I didn't see her anymore. Come to find out, my daughter missed her nap at daycare today and that's why she was acting so bad. Have any of you dealt with this and how did you handle it?
