It’s been a tough day and tonight has not been much better. There are a lot of things about CP that I’m good at handling as a father. But there are a lot of issues that come up with Haley that while not directly caused by CP are likely influenced by it. One of Haley’s bedtime routines is asking a series of questions.
“Are you or can you go in your room?”
“Lights on Door Open”
“Are you going in the basement?”
“Are you going outside?”
“Do you have any meetings or conferences”
These questions are frustrating but I’ve grown accustomed to them. However now she is also complaining about being afraid all night. It’s 11:00 Pm now and she is still up. She complains about stomach aches, being scared, or anything. This feels all very controlling and I don’t know what to do. I’ve tried ignoring, her but she gets up. I’ve tried yelling at her but she doesn’t care, I’ve threatened to put a lock on the outside of her door but I’m not sure I can do that. This has been going on every night for nearly 2 months. I’M LOOSING IT!
