Second week of school...third day of the school week. DH informed me that SD doesn't feel well and won't be going to school today. She started her period (no...not the first time) and has a headache! Now, I apologize to the guys on here, I'm sure you don't want to see this kind of stuff, but dammit! I'm a woman who-even on the pill-can have some DOOZIES, but I still drag my butt to work and take care of things! I completely understand, from time to time, it's a little rougher, but last school year was a disaster for this girl. She missed a day of school at least once a month, but usually more than a day (her BM would let her stay home at the drop of a hat!) Her grades sucked out loud...she had to go to summer school! At pre-registration, the nurse asked DH to make sure SD brings her supply of Motrin with her name on it to leave in her office..this is how often SD would go to the nurse with a "headache" trying to go home. The girl hates school, that's understandable...I hated it, too! But c'mon! I blame DH and BM. I kinda yelled at my honey this morning when he told me "I guess she's staying home today". WTF do you mean "you guess?" Go back home, stand her up, make her take a Midol and send her ass to school! I reminded him of last year (actually the last 2 years) of constantly having to stay home because of "headaches"...which she says because--let's be honest...it's the easiest to "fake". We did have to get her eyeglasses--which she refuses to wear, but her vision wasn't all that bad anyway. Her BM even took her to have an MRI because SD is constantly complaining of headaches. They (DH and BM) baby her when she says she has a headache, but then she goes to her room and blasts her music and sings as loud as she can. I'm sorry...I am a frequent migraine sufferer, so don't tell me you have a "migraine" and go do that. And it's like they are two different ailments. She always says "I have a headache and a migraine". She has seen me literally puking my guts up from the pain of a migraine, so she knows a migraine can knock a person down for a day, I guess she uses it.
I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that she has a quiz in one of her classes today....ya think?!?
