Firstly I'd like to apologise for not being around these last few days. Some of you know that my daughter had an 'accident' whilst at school, she's not been good and is very low so I've been keeping an eye on her 24/7. Anxiety and depression targets anybody doesn't it? I've said this before...it has no face and doesn't recognise ages or gender. It's simply there. To go through decades of pain I didn't think I would be sat here now talking to the lovely peeps on here about my own daughter going through the same. The darkness is the same...the pain is the same. My attitude with her is the same as it is here and I try to comfort her with the knowledge that this doesn't last but because she's a child, it's too much. Lulu has body dysmorphia plus many more issues...i don't like labels but at times we have no option but to use them. Her face she finds ugly. Because of the syndromes she has certain differences and the one boy at school used this to his advantage. So at 12 she wanted to die....shes asked for plastic surgery to change her looks and when she fell, she said it was one step closer to getting surgery. As a parent it tears at ones soul...yes I've come through anxiety and depression but watching someone you love and would die for hurt like this, even the strongest of us...weaken. I've been working on her confidence and altho early days...shes getting there. Lulu isn't sleeping, these thoughts consume her 24/7 and she's just managed to settle and drop off so I wanted to take the time to let you all know I am thinking of you and I send you all ooodles of huggles. I often use humour to help people and I'm no different with my daughter, I got a smile!!!! Then she fell to sleep on my knees and I carried her upstairs as I used to do when she was little. I look at my 13 year old and the struggles she's faced since being born and I'm proud of her. Yes she's having a rough time of it right now but one day, no-one knows when, she will reach that light and I'll be standing right beside her. Thankyou for your on going support lovelies...without you i probably wouldn't be handling it so well.
