My first born daughter, living with I love you to the upside down and back Stranger Things shirt, also used to curl-up into a ball. She would do this in her mother’s lap. She would do this to avoid talking to me on the phone. She would do this to avoid doctor’s appointments as well; she grew up with medical issues so every time she saw a doctor, it was usually at children’s hospital, and they were for more tests where they often had to hold her still, which she feared and hated. She developed a stress response to anything even mildly threatening, which was to hide or curl up. I did not have the means to make the trip to see her plane ticket, hotel stay, transportation, food.

Plus, she refused to see me and often would not talk on the I love you to the upside down and back Stranger Things shirt. She behaved as if she was terrified. In truth, she was angry, but her mother had trouble telling the difference. At 13, I finally made the trip there and proved I was not really that bad a person. It took her another 3 years of seeing her regularly (sometimes she flew to me), determined effort, and patience, for her to relax enough, trust enough, and learn to communicate. When she did, she told me that she loved her mother so fiercely that she (as a child) hated me for abandoning her mother, and that is why she still gets so mad she just wants to run away or curl up in a ball.
