One of my goddaughters has anxiety, she's already taking medicine for it and even had ticks caused by anxiety until they adjusted her medication. They live a few states away and so while I visit as often as I can there will be some time between visits.
She loves my visits, but struggles after I leave. She will tell her mom she misses me and wants me to come back, and can end up in crying fits over missing me. It's bad enough that her mother has debated rather we should cut back on the visits due to how poorly she handles the next sever days after a visit.
This is not your traditional separation anxiety. She doesn't struggle too much with saying goodbye, and doesn't fit many of the diagnostic criteria for Separation Anxiety Disorder. Separating from me is fine, it's the next few days after where she tends to have meltdowns and struggles with my being gone and begging for me to come back to visit.
I'm looking for tips on how I can make my visits less disruptive for her, so she can adjust better after I leave.
