DSM3KIDZ Posted August 12, 2005 Report Share Posted August 12, 2005 I need your guys imput in regards to sending my son to preschool this year. Maybe other mothers with my illness can give me a better perspective. We always send our kids to 3-K because our kids are the oldest in their classes and they really should be in 4k so they are ready.I am nervous because alot of days I get so extremely nauseated that I can't move off the couch. Even the meds on these days barely take the edge off. Last year was hard with taking my daughter to and from Kindergarten but my husband only works 24/hr. every two days. So basically 2-3 times a week I'd have to drive. But as you know it's still ALOT when your really down.I'd have to drop my daughter off go home for 30 min. drop my son off and pick him back up at 11:30 go home and than leave to pick daughter up at 3:15.Not only that there is all the extra things like having snacks , doing projects, going to events, and the dreaded ...meeting others my age who are healthy and want to set up play dates etc..I don't know if I can deal with the added stress but my family is extremely pushing saying I need to do it for him becasue he is ready and needs an out or distraction from me on my sick days.Either way I'm going to have anxiety, either for myself or for him. If I could wear a sign saying no playdates, events, or parties maybe I'd feel better but with school that's just stuff that can't be avoided. I don't want to meet new people because than they will expect me to explain all my issues and I can barely explain it to myself.What's a mother to do? You want the best for your child. What if I don't do it and I get this health stuff undercontrol, or I do send him and I'm worse than ever and can't be "there" for him.Any imput?Dayna Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
