Hi! I wasn't sure which board to post this on, disabilities, Families, or even Comminity so I hope I chose the correct one. My 7 year old DD (younger DD, in 1st grade) has had many health issues in her young life. Gagging on certain food textures, born with one kidney, reflux (urinary), reflux surgery, got E-Coli at age 2, speech delay and sensory issues etc.... She, thankfully, with speech therapy and a great pre-school, has outgrown most of her delays and sensory issues. Now, the last thing that is currently affecting her ability to function in school is anxiety. The teacher brought it to my attention in her parent-teacher conference this year and the school counselor called me yesterday to tell me its gotten worse, not better (she was able to witness an example first-hand yesterday) and that maybe she should see her PCP and seek counseling. She can't diagnose her but thinks it might be an anxiety disorder. We do know that she has problems with decisions/choices but we didn't realize the magnitude of it. My DD has a hard time with decisions/choices and gets overwhelmed sometimes by them. It can make her cry and shut down completely. Once this happens there is no consoling her and it can take a long time to get her out of it. We have been dealing with it at home but didn't realize how much it was affecting her in school. I feel horrible. I want to do what's best for her and not have this affect her in school. I called to tell my DH and his reaction was that she'll grown out of it and that their making a big deal of it and there is NO way he wants her on any medication. I just called our PCP today and made an appointment for next week. I guess I just wanted to vent a little and see if anyone else has someone in their family like this? Is there hope that relaxation techniques will help? Could she eventually learn to cope and/or maybe grow out of this? Thanks for any help/input.
