My kids are at risk of "long COVID" a.k.a. post-viral dysautonomia. I've been very careful. DS14 has subclinical dysautonomia symptoms already (like I did as a teen). My health fell apart when I got virus (Epstein Barr a.k.a. mono) when I was 19. I've been disabled since. It has not been a fun time. Zero stars. Do not recommend.

COVID? meh. Dysautonomia? Scary stuff!
That is hard, sorry you and the family have to deal with this in daily life. I get it though, my DD7 has severe persistent asthma and is on 2 inhalers daily, so the vaccine was not so much an option for her but more of hopefully a lifesaver

DS6 didnt get vaccinated today. Got to Walgreens -45 miles away- and sign on the door says no same day COVID vx appointments even with confirmation number. 😠 They said to reschedule, but they eont schedule a 1st vx without also scheduling the second. No walgreebs within 100 miles has a second appointment so we cant get the first. 😠

I called the State vx hotline and they recommended walk-in at county health department. Go to county website and it says only ages 12+ 😠

State vx hotline says our clinic system. Clinic system's website landing page says ages 5+ are eligible and has link to scheduling page. Scheduling page says 5-11 are not eligible 😠

Not a great day.

DH got a flu vaccine and COVID booster today! Woot! Now need to get this kiddo vaccinated and back to school. We are very frustrated with the homeschooling situation. DS6 is stubbornly refusing to participate. Whatever, he's not behind on learning targets. The bigger problem is he makes messes for 8 hours per day when he would otherwise be in school. Nobody has time to clean up after him.
So glad to hear you found him an appt!

I would love to homeschooled DD7 but I just don't know how she would be. I think I would be fighting her daily but she is so bored at school. The only reason she likes to go is for her friends.

time for a job. he's got too much mischief on his hands and needs some reality injection directly and not from you or DH. he's going to want to learn in the world of hard knocks then it's time to give it to him. IMO of course.
I agree. I was hoping our neighbor would press charges when DS14 stole a tablet from his house. He didn't.

I don't think he is capable of a job. He has difficulty with sequences (following steps) and spatial issues too (can't sweep, mop, or wipe a table to save his life).

DS14 was caight stealing money from DH's wallet. DH had suspected this since school started but couldn't prove it until now. $40 this time. DS14 has been doing chores since, so my house is staying cleanish. Supervising is more difficult than doing it myself. 😣 I was supposed to be getting Thanksgiving shopping and cooking done today. Looks like thats not happening now. 😡
I find it so funny how similar me and your son are. 🤣 I used to to the same. On about a weekly basis. As soon as I got my own online banking account I stopped. I just wanted access to my own money no one would give me.

Should it scare me how similar we are? I’m not too sure but it should scare you 🤣🤣🤣

If he doesn’t have a phone, how would you cope with him having a job in the first place?
