Some have asked me why I came here. The main reason was the boarding school issue, but here is the full story that lead up to the imprisonment we did avoid. Many years ago my wife became ill. She was born with a non-functioning Thyroid and take medication for it every day. The amount of medication are adjusted by a blood sample every 3 month. After our second child was born, she started to suffer from a low number of white cells in her blood. I think that the number reached 3 before we discovered it the first time. When it is so low, she sometimes suddenly began to sleep in the middle of the day. She was generally tired. But we got it adjusted and she did well for some years. However 5 years ago she suddenly became more and more sad, but because we live in a smaller city there is some distance (10 kilometers) to the nearest hospital and we are very root in our community, so we only leave our cities if it is very bad. People in towns 5 kilometers away are regarded as strangers and we dont have very much to do with them. As odd as it sounds it is normal here. But it became worse and when she finally was committed both the medication for the non-functioning Thyroid and medication for the lack of white cells had to be increased dramatically. It was too late because she had a brain damage which caused a severe depression. She is still very heavily medicated (225 mg efexor every day), but efter a year she got a job with subsidy. Her illness did effect our daughter when performed poorly in the classes and redraw from the social environment. When it was noticed we got a visit from the DSS because they were concerned if we had converted away from Christianity which often result in isolation in our society. Being briefed about the problem was they gave us a family coach. It was very clear that the reason our daughter was ill was because she wanted to remain home and look after her mother. My daughter did attend the core house which are a play and talk group for children of mentally ill parents and she somewhat improved. She was truant for a while which is not a big deal here but now she can keep in the classes. She only have a problem doing things outside the normal curriculum like shows, dances, music and the family coach have been able to make a deal with the school so they dont push her. Another issue is that she freezes in exam situation and that was were the doping issue came up as the doctor suggested to dope her with beta blockers (a heart medicine) so her heart would not beat as fast during the exams, which should result in better grades. We declined the offer and she got good grade ranging between B and D which is totally accepted in our family because we are from the working class and higher education here is a question of being able to afford housing rather than grades. The school did however feel she could do better if she was removed from her comfort zone and sentenced to a year in a continuation school (link) with the criminal kids. Thats when I came here because she hasn't broken the law. She does her chores, she is not interested in boys, she doesn't hang out with the youth, she goes home after school every day and read books, use the computer, watch TV and even start some of the cooking up so I can take over when I return from work. What possible benefit could she have from being placed in a boarding school in another city, maybe even to an extreme in another part of our country? Lately they have given up forcing us to send her there because she - with a little help - began to party. We are new in this area and she got too much last night and have a major hangover right now. It is however a little price to pay if you compare it to being sent away for a year from all your family. It has been some tough years.
