I know it's pretty common for our difficult child's to be "sick" a lot. But, difficult child is sick ALL the time. Now, since December she has had 4 ear infections and a sinus infection, plus allergies, so that stuff is "real". But with the number of visits to the doctor with her we should get frequent flyer miles. Honestly. She has various and sundry aches and pains daily, plus headaches, stomach aches, etc, etc. Her pediatrician doctor rx'd nausea medications, but of course difficult child says they don't work. I do realize that her anxiety and depression is playing a large part in this. However, she is not happy with any response I give her. I will tell her that I'm sorry she's feeling bad. That's not enough. I'll give her ice packs for her knees. They don't work. Or give her tylenol for her head. It doesn't do anything. She's not happy until I take her to the doctor. I'm going to talk to the doctor about this tomorrow, but I wondered if you guys experienced this and how you handle it with your difficult child's. I need some new ideas. by the way, her pediatrician doctor did explain to her that she feels that difficult child has a serotonin deficiency and the effects that has on the body, i.e., the aches and pains, headaches and effect on the gut. difficult child is now taking her SSRI.
