Thank you, Rebecca!
My son is 12 and has missed almost 25 days of school this year. It's exhausting just to enumerate everything we've been doing to address what's going on with him, and what we suspect is going on, because it doesn't meet the criteria for any diagnosis. We just don't know from one day to the next if he's going to go to school; if he doesn't he can't be left alone, but my job won't allow me to call in sick at the last minute without repercussions (I'm a teacher) and my husband is running out of his days too. So I'm taking time off now. I kind of feel like we need to just assume he's not going and make appointments for intensive therapy during the day, but that means I can't work. I like my job and I miss my students at school and I feel guilty for leaving my classroom and nervous that I'll lose the relationship I worked really hard to build with those kids--and this is probably more acute because I'm pretty new to teaching; it's not something I've been doing for years and years. ....but my son has to come first. Do I just take time off indefinitely? A week at a time? There are too many unknowns right now. Hence the question about how do just figure out how you make the time to do everything your child needs from you??? Probably unanswerable/everyone has a different answer, but just thought I would throw it out there.
