I am not looking forward to the school year with my daughter's anxiety/depression/ocd. She did not receive any credits in her 10th grade year due to so many absences and her not being able to attend school because of her illnesses. She would try each morning to get ready but would end up fussing over hair and clothes repeatedly unhappy with the results and start crying saying she is too ugly to go to school. Then she'd feel bad she didn't go and cut herself or would call me at work 3 hours later saying she thinks she can finally go. It was maddening! Last year she did better and passed over half of her classes and her attendance was better but still not great. This year and next year she needs to pass everything to graduate. I don't even know if that is realistic the way things have been. She has a 504 plan in place, but I think they can still fail her. Is there anyone who knows a better way of dealing with the school with regard to her illness so she can be successful? Should she be special ed instead? I don't know how it all works. I asked for an evaluation and ended up with a 504 plan but they said she could have also been accepted as special ed but recommended that I didn't go that route. I'm confused about all of it.

She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
