After a long bath, the teen finally tells me won't go to school today. Said "Too tired and it's a waste of time anyway."
Teen ate lunch and went to room saying going to sleep. I turned the router back off. Notice it on again and read about what to do with teens with POTS
#1. Get moving. Dont stay in bed. Even if tired have to get up.
The list goes on and on....
I called through door. "Are you up? At least out of bed?" , reiterating the things advised. Don't use bed except at night, get up even if don't feel well, avoid negative thoughts like "I can't manage school now because I don't feel well"
Get up. Try
I did what I can to try to encourage getting to school, even if late.
This child neither respects nor responds positively to me. Maybe would respond to Dad? They have a good repoire of late. Turned off router again and leaving to run my errands.
