This has been a rough week. difficult child missed 2 full days, and is going late today. Tuesday she swore she was sick. I didn't totally believe her, but let her stay home. Wed. she went to school without issue. I thought maybe she really didn't feel well. We go to the barn, and her horse totally freaks out and reared and ripped the cross ties out of the wall and took off out of the barn. We then find out earlier in the day difficult child's horse and another horse tag teamed a horse and about ran it through a fence. So, we were discussing sending the horse back. difficult child woke up yesterday crying and freaking out, so she stayed home. (I can't physically pick her up now that she has gained weight.) Settled the horse problem, and the horse is staying. difficult child is trying to stay home again today. Freaking out about tests in SS. They are trying to make her take 2 today because it is the end of the quarter. So much for the 504, and giving her more time. And, not to mention, she can't even write with the cast on. 2 of her other teachers made accommodations. One let her take a test orally, and the other just had her do it on the computer. Not the SS teacher. Gotta love the old school male teachers. Called school and of course had to leave a message, because her guidance counselor is a loser, and is never there. So, difficult child and I made a compromise. I want her at school today. She is in the middle of a full blown panic attack. So, I am letting her stay home until 4th period. She is going in at 10 right after the SS class is over. Not the best solution, but the best I have for right now. Called and talked to husband about this, and he said I know this isn't perfect, but look at the positive, she is at least telling you what is going on, and why she is acting out, where before she just raged and threw huge tantrums. So, I guess he is right. Now lets just hope that she actually goes at 10 like she told me she would.
