Hello I am looking for some positive parent to parent advice on how to deal with my overwhelming fear that my child is going to get sick again.
We found out he gets febrile convulsions the other day - 5 in a row. It's caused from a spike in temp and turned out he had a virus and was in hospital for a week so they could keep an eye on the convulsions.
My problem is this - I was a very happy mum and now I have turned into a worry wort and practically doing my own head in. I am in constant fear this is going to happen again, this morning he has a temp of 38.2 and I am freaking out already.
I feel I am not strong enough to see my child unwell again and I feel that I am letting my family down by being a crumbling mess when any little hint of sickness pokes its head.
I am constantly running around with a temp gauge in his ear/can't sleep at night thinking one is going to happen in his sleep etc etc
How can I get my mindset straight??
