My Teen Still Growing?

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

My daughter is 14. She has a heart defect, fibromyalgia, mild Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and anxiety disorder. She's on 100 mg of Zoloft & 5 mg of Melatonin.
Once in a great while she is up all night & I don't know because I fell asleep. When I wake up, she's up. Takes her a few days to get her energy back.
She's been on her meds for a year now and doing very well emotionally.
Her harms are so long and gangly, her fingers long too, her feet are longer than mine.
She grew 4 inches since age 12 when she started menses.
I'm thinking that she might be growing more, tired lately, has a huge appetite, is 5'3" and weighs 100 lbs. She eats more than I do and is less active than I am.

    I would have guessed 19 not 14. Fibromyalgia is rough add all the other things and boy does she have a challenge
