Samarella's Journal


  • Oh Sam, I'm so sorry that you're dealing with so much!! :(

    I have no idea what to tell you about the ADHD meds, we started Tucker on Focalin once, and I couldn't stand the side effects, we took him right back off. I have been too scared to try anything else.

    So sorry that you are missing your baby girl, you're right, you should be buying Barbie dolls, too!

    I hope that Jaxson gets over the RSV very quickly.

    And I couldn't handle living with someone who parents like that....or their child! So good luck with that, I hope you have the house to yourselves soon.



  • Oy Samantha. so much to navigate and to do so on little sleep... even tougher!

    For what its worth I knew a family that had a lil' night time (and day time... whenever no one was looking!) snacker and they found these awesome magnetic locks for all their cabinets.  It wasn't the final solution, but it really made a huge difference for them and the kiddo who wanted so much to listen, but really struggled to, the locks made it so he was always successful because he couldn't get in. :)

    I'm so sorry Jaxon got RSV... I'm hopeful he will be able to kick it quickly and you both get the sleep you need.

    And big hugs momma.  I know that ache for what you should be buying.



  • Girl!  I'm so sorry.....  

    My sister has to constantly keep in touch with everything regarding my nephew and his meds.  Sometimes the side effects don't show up until later and they just need a switch.  I hope you'll be able to find the right one for Jadon.  

    RSV....Boo!!!!  Poor little man!  I hope that he's feeling better soon and the eating and sleeping gets back into the groove.

    Hugs to you!!!


  • Sam,

    I'm so sorry that things are so overwhelming right now.  Unfortunately I don't have any advice on the ADHD and meds.  I hope that this new medication works for him with fewer side effects.

    I'm also sorry to hear that Jaxson has RSV.  Lucia had that when she was 4 months old, and it was extremely stressful.  I hope that he's able to make a full recovery soon.

    I know your angel Trinity is smiling down on her mommy right now.



  • Oh Samantha I hear you, I hear you.... I am also scare to death and feeling like  I am starving my poor kid... Sometimes I wonder if the benefits of the meds out stand the side effects... Sometimes I wonder if  these meds are for his benefit or someone else so he can be in  a "normal chart" ... Sorry maybe I am not helping you at all, but I just want to  make you know you are not alone on those feelings....I truly hope the new med helps, Oh poor Jaxson and RSV hope he is better..... You need some good sleep, hope you can sleep better,



  • Ugh, big hugs to you!  I hope that Jadon is evening out with his new meds and that Jaxson is feeling better.  Wish you could be going out to buy those barbie dolls too, sucks missing a baby during the holidays.
