So difficult child 1 is still complaining of stomach aches every time she wakes up in the morning. She has already missed many days of school because of this. She has missed so many days that the school is going to require doctor's notes every time she is absent. I don't know what is wrong with her. She wanted to skip school again this morning because she said she felt like throwing up. She couldn't even take her morning medications because she was too nauseous. I reminded her that she can't miss any more school unless it's for a doctor appointment. I coaxed her into going to school today by telling her that if she still felt ill, she could always go to the nurse's office. So at about 9:00 this morning the nurse called me. She stated that difficult child was complaining of a stomach ache, but she didn't have a fever. She also said that difficult child complained of having a hard time breathing. The nurse checked her heart rate and it was normal. difficult child stayed in the office for awhile till her breathing returned to normal. She then returned to class. On and off difficult child has been complaining of labored breath plus this nausea. To me this sounds like classic anxiety symptoms. I should know. I have anxiety attacks all the time and when I get them I feel sick to my stomach and can't eat anything. difficult child also can't eat when she gets these symptoms. I have asked difficult child time and time again if she is experiencing any anxiety. She denies it every single time. She has also told the school psychiatric, psychiatrist, and her therapist that she's not experiencing any anxiety at all whatsoever. Is she just not being honest to any of us? Or could it be something else entirely? I took her to the doctor a few months ago and he couldn't find anything wrong with her physically. If it really is anxiety, how do I help her with it when she won't admit it?
