My daughter was in grade 4 when she started having unexplained stomachaches. Attendance was always a problem with her. Grade 1 was difficult. The teacher was militant about attendance. She had friends. She did well when there, just hard getting her there. Grade 4, stomachaches. Doctors, chiropractic appointments (chiropractor said it was anxiety), massage therapy. By grade 8, she was talking suicide. Counsellors, teachers, and parents got her through. Grade 10, anxiety was extreme. Suicide watch again. We pulled her out of the public system. She is now trying to finish her grade 12. My profession is teacher….I am at a loss as to what to do.
