Woke up with the smallest of headaches and a dry throat but that’s it. I did cancel on helping the teacher today at my smallest munchies school and slept in a bit. The middle kidlet had me up from about 2:30 to 5am crying and a bit hysterical with a massive dizzy spell.
She’s getting an MRI soon, but meanwhile what do we do? We haven’t found a definitive cause. But I’m thinking that hypnosis couldn’t hurt. I’m also trying to get the vertigo protocol from the Pranic Healing teacher. Grasping at straws but something has got to work here.
I hate cancelling on the school but I needed the rest. Migraines are no joke, they leave me with a few days of exhaustion afterwards. Kind of like a migraine hangover. I have gotten them so bad I’ve had to go to emergency and get morphine. No clue exactly what hit me this time but it cycled through quickly and seems to be going now.
But back to the school thing. I’ve offered to volunteer on an ongoing basis two mornings a week. I want to do this because the teacher needs help. She is sweet and so caring and genuinely doing her best but she doesn’t have a ton of experience yet and she has about 4-6 very inattentive (hyper) children in her class who tend to disrupt constantly. Some stay on task and some don’t. Not that they aren’t intelligent, if anything a few seem hyperintelligent.
I don’t know their exact issues. I can’t comment to each child specifically. There is one child who is definitely on the spectrum and he does get a lot of aides come in to help, but he doesn’t get dedicated teaching. So he misses out a lot. I was talking to a few other moms about the situation. Which in hindsight was probably not a good call. But they asked me specifically about it and they have vested interest of course because their children are in the same class.
I told them that I am trying to help more in class because it benefits everyone and it’s worth my time to be part of the solution or at least try be of help. They were asking why we have students like that in a regular class. I don’t have an answer to that but I do know that we have a pretty decent school system in this city and that the education these children are receiving is probably the best free schooling they can get.
I used to have a neighbor that paid $5k a month for her child to attend a very specialized autism school. I don’t recall much else but that price tag sure stood out. It’s a sad situation for everyone, I think.
I remember struggling in school because my method of learning is not the way schools teach. I would have to doodle while the teacher talked to not have my mind wander and be able to actually listen. People talk so slow it’s like torture to me sometimes. My mind processes things quickly which is why I learn better at my own pace. To this day I still can’t learn from videos or online training. But I am an introvert. These children are extroverts. Making it a completely different ballgame for them.
Well, off to work and then a new client later. He’s a real interesting gentleman. He was part of the 60’s movement and he stayed true to himself and has been living the spiritual lifestyle being vegan and altruistic. Now he has a rare disease that he is trying to fight, that most people die of. I commend his spirit. He is an extraordinary character.
At some point I’ve got to clean my house. Not a priority but also not coming off the list until I do something about it myself, unfortunately. And I’ll feel so much better the 3 minutes it will stay clean. Lol
I wonder, would I rather have time or money? Can’t say. Right now I seem to have neither. 🤪🤣🤨🤷🏽♀️🤔
Cest la vie.
