My younger daughter is 16. It is funny how people think there are 'cures' for just about everything... yet there aren't even NAMES (diagnoses) for everything! One of the disabling conditions my daughter has had since birth is a diagnosis which most people use to mean "headache". Yep, I am referring to migraines. For my daughter, they are more disabling than all her other diagnoses... and they DON'T have to even include head PAIN. That's another misconception held by the 'general public'.
The latest thing we are dealing with is a sleep disorder which causes her to miss months of school each year when totalled up. It is like narcolepsy but isn't quite...
For high school, she is going to a small non-profit private school for bright kids with special educational needs. She is going to go to college... but after missing 50 days of school so far this year, we are not sure how that is going to work out. She has a wonderful, sensitive, service dog that is a great help to ME as well as to her, because the dog takes care of her and alerts me when she is having difficulty.
