Over the weekend if had soo much pain it's unbearable so I've tried to sleep my way thro it. Unfortunately my 10 year old daughter has seen it all, the last time the pain levels were like this I was admitted to hospital (on 2 separate occasions last year for TN and 1 for really bad withdrawal after the hospital Dr's sent me home the day after stopping all my meds dead!) so she's had major separation issues this morning. SHE refused to get up, she refused to eat anything, she refused to get dressed, she just refused everything full stop.
Once I did get her up and dressed she still refused to eat which is a worry for me because she's type 1 diabetic (only diagnosed 18th August), she wouldn't even test her blood glucose levels. I had already rang the school and left a message saying that I was bringing her in but we're going to be late as she was having difficulties.
I stopped arguing about her eating and testing because she was dressed and I knew the school would help.
When we got to the school the headmistress was coming out of the office to get something from her car which worked perfectly because both Jo and myself respect her deeply, she has helped us soo much over the last year since Jo joined the school. I tried to leave jo with the headmistress but she clung on to me and wouldn't let me go so we all went into her office and she shut the door to give us privacy so we could talk to her. The whole time Jo still clung on to me not letting me go. Both myself and the hheadmistress worked out that Jo was a little worried about not completing a homework project but mainly because Jo is very worried that I am going to be admitted back to hospital.
I've tried to explain things to her that I have better medical care now and I've got a doctor's appointment this afternoon and if anything like that I would ring the school straight away. She's also seeing the diabetic psychologist who is trying to help her with this as well bit I'm lost, I hate seeing either of my babies upset like this (yes there still my babies even though they're 14y and 10y).
Is there another way to explain it? My 14 year old seems to understand but I'm not sure, he asks questions and when I explain he seems to be ok plus his dad has not long been diagnosed with fibromialga.
Sorry but I'm a little lost with this and I need a little help. I've tried to explain it a few ways to her and the psychologist seemed to be making some progress until this morning
