Journeys, like artists, are born and not made. A thousand differing circumstances contribute to them, few of them willed or determined by the will-whatever we may think. ~Lawrence Durrell

I am feeling a renewed sense of hope today, as Daniel has not experienced one anxiety attack, as of yet. I believe that our visit to the chirosport doctor, helped him tremendously. I stood and watched Doctor Cheratt work on Daniel, my eyes started to well up. Maybe it is because I have been friends with his wife since we were in kindergarten, but he is very concerned for Daniel's health. It is nice to have a person who knows so much about the human body and cares about something other than lining his pockets, give their time and energy to help my son. Someday, I hope I will be able to repay him for his love and kindness.

I have a dinner date with my husband tonight. The kids are going to stay at my mom's. It is a little nerve fraying to leave Daniel during such a rough time, but I know that my mom will take good care of him. Daniel knows to do the exercise that Dr. Cheratt taught him, if he gets dizzy. It seems to calm him and give him a sense of control over his body. Daniel has always been big on control. He will not ride roller coasters or do anything that he is not able to retain control during. Yet, he will do all kinds of dangerous stunts at home, without regard to safety.

I am already seeing some small changes in his outbursts. I'm not sure if it is because he is afraid to get dizzy when he tenses up, or if it is due to our new diet. Either way, I am thankful for the peaceful (relatively speaking) atmosphere of the house, today. I still have not heard from the psychologist's office and I'm not shocked. I think I will ride this withdrawal and when school begins, request a full comprehensive exam be done. I am told that the school is required, by law, to do so within thirty days of a written request by the student's parent. That is the game plan for now and in the meantime, we shall keep treading ground in search of possible causes. Next stop: Environmental Allergies.
