My Son Was Sick, and I Didn’t Realize How Sick He Was
Solo episode—Patricia Young
My son got sick at college, and told us he wanted to come home, but we didn’t realize how sick he was, and we told him to go to Health Services the following day. His roommate called us late that evening and told us our son needed to go the hospital. How do you teach your kidults to communicate that they are really ill? How to you teach them how to communicate their symptoms? I also talk about the dilemma when we haven’t taught our kids how to negotiate when we say no, and we’re not hearing their needs. If anyone is caring for children and an adult, I talk about the mental load of caring for two different generations and how as a Sensitive, it impacts me.
