I have 10 year old son, and for the past week and half has had major anxiety regarding school. I am not sure what is going on, we have always known he tends to get nervous about new things, and has managed to work through it, he has never liked any form of change. So about 2 weeks ago, my little sister moved in with us, desperate need, either us or homeless(another story altogether) That was on a thursday over a week ago. He was fine that Thursday and Friday, and the weekend, my husband is a line man and had to go on storm work in arkansas, a left that saturday. On Monday, the school called me with a stomache for Dakotah that morning. The next morning, he did not even make it his class with a stomache. Ever since then every morning before school he has what i call mini panic attacks, and has taken several hours to get over. This morning, i was at the bus stop with him and he was literally paralyzed by something. This is not a child with any behaviour issues, very sweet. I could tell this morning that he wanted to get on the bus and literally could not make his self move. I took him to a therapist last week and he taught him the stop method which seemed to work that night, but these attacks come on so soon that he has no time to use them before hand and then cannot recuperate fast enough for them to be effective once it hits. I am not sure what to do, as he is missing school and part of his life, as well (may seem selfish) but i am missing work. I have also tried positive reinforcement such as if you make it, we will do this or that, and i know he really wants to but it is literally paralyzed and cannot make it happen. Anyone have any advice.
