Well difficult child didn't even make it to the day before his flight!!! He called me at work about 9pm and was freaking out. Said he is having trouble breathing and his face and other parts are all tingly. He was crying. I calmly told him to settle down. Told him that he is alright, breathe deep. He said he felt like passing out and he was afraid that dad was really mad at him. I talked to husband. He WAS upset. I reminded him that difficult child REALLY feels this. I asked difficult child if he would feel better if he got some fresh air and husband took him for a ride. he said yes. when I talked to husband I asked him to do this. He was upset. Trying to get things together for the trip and now has to go out. Plus it was getting late and difficult child needed to get to bed. He IS going to school tomorrow, he cannot miss. husband said he was on the computer and he went in there to tell him to go to bed and noticed that difficult child was reading about carbon monoxide poisoning. I told him we have a carbon monoxide detector, and he asked if Iwas sure it worked. Geez, what next. At midnight difficult child called me at work again. Sounded much better. Told me they rode around for a while then he started feeling the same way. He freaks out then. So, husband took him to ER. Between these anxiety attacks and him thinking he is dying with every ache and pain, and his headaches...we should just reserve our private room at ER!!! Why does difficult child believe the doctors and nurses and not US??? They told him he was having anxiety attacks. They gave him xanax for the plane ride!!! Told him not to take it tonight because he would be drowsy in the morning for school. So, he won't get to sleep until about 1am and must get up at 6 for school. Noticed he didn't do his homework in any class again. Yesterday and today. His behavior has been good, thus the student of the month/most improved student award. But he MUST do homework. So not only is he missing two days this week, he will be exhausted when he returns sunday evening and will have so much work to make up. This will just overwhelm him and make him angry. AGGGGHHHH. I don't want to get into it with him tomorrow after school. He needs to get current work done and get to bed early. Afraid if he takes xanax he will get nervous because it will make him feel funny. And I don't want him to be out of it and tired when he gets there. They have four very full days of events going on in Pittsburgh. I am so dissappointed about the homework. I just don't understand. He has told me homework is "bogus" shouldn't have to do it. I just want to scream.
