Birdwings, So very true what you say about my own anxiety! I do try hard not to show him how much I worry the time he is missing at school, but I am guilty of letting my worry bubble out at times, having someone else point this out is beneficial in moving forward, do thank you. I'm curious as to what strategies you used with your own children to help them manage?

I am deeply concerned about my son. He just turned 13 this month and started high school this week. He has good friends, plays sport once a week and is a kind and courteous boy. First day of school appeared to go well, however, since then he has begun vomiting in the mornings, I managed to get him to school at midday on the second day and he stayed for the last 3 hours without issue. This morning on the way to school, his tell-tale signs began to appear; feeling suddenly hot and nauseous then vomited. He was able to compose himself and go to class. An hour and a half later the school rang to say he was vomiting again so I had to collect him, he was fine once home. Frustratingly, he cannot pinpoint what is bothering him, he says he's not worried about school or the big changes that come with high school. I'm so stressed that he is missing the first important days of high school and has missed out on crucial information. I just don't know how to help him when he cannot articulate what is troubling him. Any advice would be appreciated.
