If your child is hurt, having seizures, or is not responsive, you must call an ambulance. Are you prepared to give all needed information to the responders without missing something? Most people are not.
Let’s look at some ways to make this critical situation go a little smoother.
Most of all, keep calm! Stress and anxiety clutters your thoughts and actions, making it easy to miss something that may be important.
After making the difficult decision to medicate your child, with time and on occasions, old symptoms return or new ones appear. Once again, you’re faced with what felt like an already-made decision - to medicate higher or more, or not.
Giving yourself permission to take the time you need when you are ill can bring about good, healthy outcomes.
