I have an 11 year old daughter with spastic diplegia and am having two new problems that I am unsure how to help her with. The first is muscle spasms in her legs. Her doc says that these are not due to her CP and is ordering aseries of tests to try to find the cause. He has put her on Zalatan. Does any one
else have any experience with the spasms or the medicine? The next problem is puberty!!! I am prepared for the emotional rollercoaster but she has started feeling really sad for herself. Shes told her sister that it is her fault that she cant walk, she is just nasty& negative. My mother calls it a big ole pity party,
tho I dont like the words it is a fairly accurate description. I dont know how much of this new attitude is due to puberty or should I have been expecting this all along? How do I help her understand that the blame and pity arent going to help her?I am afraid that if it continues she'll turn bitter& resentful. I guess Im
not sure if this is "normal" or not!! Any ideas, suggestions, or help would be wonderful before the sisters kill each other or I go nuts!! Thanks
