So, I posted a few days ago about my 17 year old daughter. She has been picking on her face (and now chest) relentlessly for the last couple of weeks. Now, she is getting teased at school for the sores she has all over her face, especially. She also works at a grocery store and last night she worked and came home in tears because every one was asking her what was wrong with her face and if she had chicken pox, etc? She is just devastated. Right now, she is begging to let me release her from school but I know it's her anxiety and getting teased making her want to come home . . and I know that if I allow her to just come home because of anxiety it will start a vicious cycle of missing school. (She is a senior in high school and only has 2 months left so every day is critical for her to be there, plus she misses a lot of school anyways for doctor appointments.) I am really in a catch 22 here. I feel like I need to "stand my ground" and say she needs to stay at school - she has the option of working in the office, I know, because I talked to school about it. She just says she "wants to come home". The other thing is, if she goes home - I KNOW she is going to pick on her sores more. I am at work right now myself and can't leave. Any advice, please??
