Hello, my daughter is 12 and missing lots of school due to symptoms and illness , she is yet to be diagnosed, and it is so difficult when specialists or doctors try to fob you off and suggest she is just avoiding school. She is having some tests but it's a long journey ahead. I worry she has fibro or lupus or another autoimmune . I desperately don't want her to feel like she is not being believed . If the school start to fine us we would be forced to homeschool and I don't want her to miss out . But I can't always get her to school when she is ill ! How has anyone coped with this ? It's the worst thing I have ever been through . My son is older and has been thru school , but my daughter is so unlucky . It's heartbreaking . Thanks for any advice.
