I think both difficult child and I are losing grip here. I get home from work, went to bed at 1:30. easy child asks for my car for a few hours. five minutes later difficult child calls from school. Said he coughed up blood. and he has been having bad stomach pains. He said he has internal bleeding, cancer and he is going to die. I can hear his voice shaking. I assure him he is fine. Asked what he had for lunch. Pizza. Ok, there is your "pink/red". He said no, he tasted blood and coughed. Again I try to reason. Tell him too much Advil, Excedrin, Pepto(contains asprin). told him no spicy foods and his stomach will feel better. I get up and make Jello and pudding. five minutes later another call. Even more frantic. Go through it all again. Third call. Same thing. 25 minutes of school, you'll be ok. Gets home and is shaking. I have him lay down by me. Press on his stomach. Pain. Says there is a "lump" there and it hurts. Cancer. The more he talked the more frantic he became. Then he said Dad was going to call his doctor. By this time husband is out of work on his way home. I had difficult child call and ask him about the doctor and tell him to get him in. difficult child does. Dad calls back and tells him to be ready when he gets there. difficult child is no hysterical. Crying and shaking and out of control. I try to settle him down, but now he doesn't want to go to the doctor. Why?? "because they are going to tell me I am dying". OMG. I did my best to settle him down but he was that way when he left. Two hours later they get back. he's fine. Needs more fiber in his diet. Go to bed about 6:30. Get up at 10 and difficult child is asleep. husband is in the basement. i go down to talk to him. he said difficult child drilled the nurse about internal bleeding and cancer and dying. Then the same with the doctor. Doctor says he is very intelligent. No other kid knows as much as he does. he explained that if it were internal bleeding he would be very sick. Has to explain everything. Ok. Lump=fiber. So, now I am thinking I am really messing up difficult child. My fault. When ever husband and I are in this state and something happens to difficult child we are together. Or atleast speaking. So is this unintentional? However he has had stomach issues since early December throwing up and such. AAAGGGHHH. difficult child and I have same issues. Both lose control, both worry about everything and all the "what if's" I seem to be misplacing things. However not like difficult child. He can't get ten feet without losing something. Only at school though. I never lost control before difficult child came along. he just pushes the right buttons and I explode. We need help.
