complains she's sick every morning

posted 1 decade 5 years ago
Candra often complains she's sick every morning to get away with staying home from school to play on the computer and play with the dog. i oknow when she's faking it most of time, but I'm wondering if some illnesses get past the physical symptom radar. Like this morning. Yesterday she was fine and this morning "I'm not feeling well". I felt her head and she feels slightly warm. Of course, though, because she just got out of a nice warm bed. But she has funny looking red marks on her face. Not spots or bed markings. But smudges of red between her brows and on her cheeks going across her nose bridge. I told her to take it one step at a time. Eat breakfast and we'll see how your doing after.

i used to complain i was sick sometimes to get off school i mainly did it when i had lessons i didnt like or when i was being bullied. does candra have a problem in school that maybe making her feel like she has to pretend to be sick so she doesnt have to face it?

no. Not major enough issues. She's got lots friends in school and enjoys her classes for the most part. I just think it's the thought of walking out the cold. She's a big movie and computer nut. And since Daddy'e laid off, she wants to spend more time with him.
She's been playing the sick act for months. She's a good actress and sometimes has me fooled till by midmorning, when she's awake enough to chase the pets and bounce off the walls. Then I dump her at school.

But today is a little bit. And I'm not surprised. For about 3 weeks now her grandparents have been sick. But they were over at our place twice or more wihin that time. And Grandpa doesn't know how to cover hos mouth when he coughs. At the christmas party he had Candra sitting on his lap and he was coughing all over her. Sometimes I felt it on me. It was soooooo gross. So I told candra that next time Grandpa coughs, show him how to cover his mouth with his arm. She does it very well.
