struggling

I've been debating whether or not to post this or not. I'd rather keep this blog as positive as I can, even when we are going through medical crises. Plus there are subjects I have a hard time opening up about. However, I've reached a point where I am seeking support, a shoulder to cry on - something.

Over the past month or so, maybe a little longer, Anna has really been struggling, emotionally. Tears, anger, and meltdowns have become more and more common. She's starting to show the beginning signs of self-harm. Something seemingly insignificant will cause her to just fall apart.

She is seeing a psychologist now, but so far I haven't seen any changes. I do realize that it isn't a quick fix. I just wish I knew what to do or say, since most of the time I seem to exacerbate the problem without even meaning to. I hate that she's hurting inside, and it's a hurt I don't know how to fix.

The stress of all of this is starting to affect me, too. I'm constantly achy, I'm guessing from how tense I am when she is in one of her rages. I'm exhausted, too. I guess I'm writing to ask for prayers, hugs, whatever may possibly get us through this storm.
