We are going through a really rough time right now. easy child/difficult child is only going to school for 1/2 the day. She comes home and lays in my bed and watches TV. She is so anxious that any little thing will set her off and get her obsessing and/or raging. She is complaining that her head hurts and that is why she is laying around all the time. After she went over to her best friend's house on Sunday for the first time in weeks, she came home and cried because it was too much. This all started after some medication trials this summer. She is back on her migraine medicine which should help her anxiety but it isn't working as quickly as I would like. She usually does well in public so I can't decide what to do about Thanksgiving. We are supposed to go to my parents from Wed. through Saturday. It is a 3 hour car trip. Most of me just wants to stay home or come home after an even shorter trip. I can't imagine having to put on a happy face for so long and I am not sure she will be able to hold it together for so long. But it is pretty miserable here at home, too, and I'm thinking it might do us good to get out and try to forget about it. Then again, I hate the idea of one of our scenes happening at someone else's house where we have no place else to go. What would you do?
