I have resigned myself to the fact that Libby is not going to get over her fear of thunderstorms. I have tried everything the experts say. I've watched all the shows, read the articles, read the posts on here and nothing I try works. I know not to comfort her and reinforce her fear. I just let her go lay in the bathroom where she feels the most comfortable. But I just feel so bad for her. Lately, she's been changing her behavior though, and I think she's getting worse. She used to just run to the batchroom, but now she gets real clingy to us and doesn't want to leave our side, which is okay, but I don't want to comfort her. But I feel like a big meany. When I know it's going to storm I give her melatonin in a piece of cheese. I don't know if it helps or not, but it's worth a try. It seems like she starts getting anxious a couple hours before it even gets here. She's scared when it's windy, she's scared when it's raining, because she thinks it's going to thunder. How do you guys deal with it when you just can't get them over it. I've even tried putting one of my shirts over her, don't know if it helps or not.
