Ok... My son was diagnosed two weeks and 1 day ago...I just introduced myself about a week ago to this site. I am ever so thankful for it too!!! So, I could use some help here! I am having a horrible time getting my son to go to school! He complains of stomache pains, etc. until he is tears and makes me feel so bad for him that I allow him to stay home or go in late. This is really becoming a habit and I am not sure what to do. He has broken down and told me he is scared..."what if you aren't there and something happens?" As if I don't feel bad enough that he has this and has to learn to cope with daily life. I am constantly reassuring him that I am a phone call away and will leave work if I have to come get him. The school is working so well with us. They allow him to come in and use the phone to call if he needs and the school nurse calls me just about 4 times a day with his bs. I think he is becoming a bit obsessed with checking! I am just beside myself with this!!! I know it must be overwhelming for him to deal with this and try to stay in school and try to be as normal as possible, but I can't help think that his attachment to me is holding him back!!!!! What can I do? Any suggestions, is anyone else going through this?
