Just returned from the neurologist, she will have an EEG tomorrow & an MRI the next day. They are checking for things like MS & seizure activity, why she's suddenly having more coordination problems etc. School starts Monday so they are trying to get everything in now! I've never heard of someone 14 having MS-my brother has it but he didn't show signs until he was 30.
The counselor at the school won't work with me until 2 weeks into school, very frustrating! My son just gradtuated from the same school & said as far as counseling help is concerned this couselor is next to useless! Why does everything have to be a fight!?!? I feel like I'm swimming in mud, against the tide, uphill- all the time. I know many people are having the same feeling & similar or worse problems!
Thank you for the good advice! We'll keep posting as to how things are going.
I sure hope they find out what she is dealing with. Once you know that, then a good plan of action will be taken and your daughter should do fine.
Just keep reinforcing that she can do anything if she puts her mind to it. There are thousands of stories out there of people overcoming what seemed to be insurmountable odds. If she has the desire, she will find a way to accomplish it. She knows she can count on her Mom, too! That's wonderful.
So, try to stop worrying and take each day at a time. Somehow things always work out.
