My previous post was about the trouble I was having with getting my daughter moved from one class to another due to her anxiety.
With a doctor’s note, her principle flat out declined to move her. She said she would offer therapy in school but that’s not in the cards. We have amazing treatment for her outside of school. Our therapist said that my daughter should have as little stress as possible so being split from her 4 friends in a class with no friends was a big deal. 
I called the school board and they said it could be a big long drawn-out process to set up a complaint which I can’t do. That would be too hard on my daughter.
Finally, Cyndi Gerlach, School Trustee for the City of North Vancouver, called me. I had been given her number from another parent. She really listened to everything I had to say and had some great suggestions on what to do. She is also calling the school and will do everything possible to help my daughter.
I felt really listened to. She’s a mom as well and she really understands what it’s like to have children with mental illness issues. I 100% believe she is the children’s advocate when it comes to North Vancouver.

A pissed off mom

First day of school. My 8 year old daughter is split from her whole group of friends.

My daughter suffers anxiety from her dad being murdered. Therapist said to cause no stress in her life right now. I have a note.

Principal refuses to move her. She says the doctors note doesn’t matter. I’m so angry.

I mean, what the hell? It’s a small thing to do to make a big difference. I’m her advocate and should continue to do so.

Pissed off mom

When touring frequently, it’s super important to do your best to stay healthy. Alcohol lowers your immune system. So even though it’s tempting since many musicians play at bars, try not to drink often. Caffeine should also be kept to a minimum (this is a personal struggle). Get enough sleep. Take vitamins/supplements. Drink PLENTY of water even if you fear frequent potty breaks on the road. Fortunately, I haven’t been sick in nearly 9 months. When I start to feel achy or sinus pressure, I make sure to get plenty of rest and use a neti pot. Make sure you listen to your body! #netipot #vitamins #supplements #tourlife #musician #health #aromatherapy #sleep #juiceplus #tourtips #roadtrip #band #alcohol #caffeine
