I know that Celiac messes with our systems so bad and can cause emotional stress. That being said, I need some advise from parents that have celiac children.
My 11 year was diagnosed with Celiac about a month ago. On the advise of her doctor we had her go gluten free from the get go, wish I would have waited until we saw the Ped's GI but I can't take it back and we don't see him until June 18th.
Today, I received a call from her school at 4 p.m., she is usually home on the bus by that time. I received a call from the school letting me know that they had her there because she had went to the school psychologist and had told them she was having problems with some kids at school and was thinking of harming herself. They had the cops there as well. I am floored! I can't drive right now ( just had surgery a few weeks ago - I have celiac myself) and her father went and picked her up and took her to another appointment with a therapist that deals with children.
I know that this disease messes with our bodies from head to toe. I know she is an 11 year old that is also getting hormonal so that adds to the emotional side. We are setting her up to talk with the therapist for the summer and are hoping that since summer is here ( last day of school tomorrow) and she can get away from the problem girls that hopefully we can get it worked out.
I really don't want her on any meds this early in her life and I was wondering if any other parents had any suggestions. I am at a loss right now.
