I am seeking some advice on how to cope with the overwhelming stress of having a constantly sick child. My daughter has severe Asthma and has been constantly struggling to breathe since she was about 15 months. She is now 3 1/2 years old and in the last 4 months things have gotten progressively worse. She has had Pneumonia twice in the last 3 months and is now on 2 new medications to help with her breathing. I am a single mother so having a supportive partner isn't really available at the moment. I have a little boy who is 5 1/2 and currently in Kindergarten. He is in good health and has been such a trooper when it comes to me taking care of his sister but I do feel bad that he is missing out of getting attention from time to time when things are bad with her. Has anyone been through anything similar? How have you handled the situation? Thank you!!
