  • Poll: Homeschool

    I am bored, so I thought I would start a poll!

    How many teenagers out there are/were homeschooled or are thinking of being homeschooled?

    Hey, I'm out of high school and in college now. I went through my high school years with pain from IC. At the time I did not know I had IC. I'm in my second year of college right now. I was just dignosed with IC in Sept. I remember in high school there were many times I wished I was homeschooled due to the pain. Of course I knew that I could never do home schooling. I just don't think I would learn anything. LOL Chelsey

        I was homeschooled from 3rd grade and I'm now in college.... My IC started in the second semester of 10th grade... and if I wasn't homeschooled I doubt that I would have made it to college because I would have had way to many sick days.
        current meds:
        cytotec 200mcg twice daily
        toprol
        allegra

        ONLY 3 MEDICATIONS!!! YAY! Would never have dreamed this is possible

        dx: hashimoto's thyroiditis 1998
        dx: interstitial cystitis via cystoscopy with hydrodistention and biopsy 2003
        dx: endometriosis 2003
        dx: innapropriate sinus tacchicardia 2005

        meds tried but failed:
        elavil (6months)- severe tachycardia
        elmiron (1yr6mo.)- no improvement, nausea, hair loss, stomach ulcers
        a bunch of others

          My IC started getting really bad my senior year of high school. I think I missed 30 some days. I did graduate but it sure was a struggle with all the pain. Chelsey

            My parents and I are considering this option. I know I won't be able to continue going to school if my symptoms don't improve. I have missed over two weeks of school. Even when I am in class, it's hard to concentrate when I'm always being distracted by the pain and urgency. My GPA has plummeted to a 1.3.
            I hope that I can get better so I can keep going to school.

            Chronic conditions: IC, bipolar disorder, Lown-Ganong-Levine syndrome, Raynaud's disease, bile reflux, scoliosis
            Current IC treatments: menstrual suppression
            Daily treatments for other conditions: Neurontin, Zyprexa, Cymbalta, Modafinil
            As-needed treatments for other conditions: Klonopin, Ambien

                  Marie, this is a very old thread and you may not receive many responses. There are many parents who are home schooling their children simply because they feel they are getting a better education. I think it's great that this is available.

                  Warm hugs,
                  Donna
                  Stay safe

                    The Church where I go to most families there are home schooling their children. I think that its a great. Even though my children went to public school, my mother in law did teach them a few things every day.

                      My son was sick with an other issue. He home schooled officially starting grade nine, up until then if he missed school the school just send his work home to do.

                      It turned out home schooling was a good fit for him, he loved it, sometimes he would take a class or 2 at the school and some on line. He liked on line classes by far the best.

                      The actual schooling took less hours, he could do it on his time frame.

                      When he was ready for grade 12, he finally had a diagnoses and treatment, so he decided to go back to school.

                      He ended up graduating 1 1/2 years early for his age, and top of his class.

                      He got to take classes he really liked, he took some classes on line with couple of Friends which helped him learn it.

                      For my son it was a very good experience and I considerate it a privilege to have had the chance to do this with him. It didn't hurt me that I took math from grade 3 to grade 10 with him, brushed up my skills, long forgotten.

                      Homeschooling can give you a very good education and can be tailored to the individual.

                      I made a point of having kids out to our place often so he still got to socialize, some kids spent more of their life in my home than their own.

                      My son had the best of both worlds and ended up being a very well round young man.

                      MG
                      My are with you all. May you all find a way to peace and joy in your lives.

                        Home schooling or home bound instruction

                        Mary, sorry you are suffering at a young age. My 13 year old daughter has been suffering from this for the past two year, diagnosed when she was in 4th grade. Another option to Homeschooling is Homebound instruction. In this once your doctor verifies in writing that you have this disease and are unable to attend school, school districts are required to schedule teachers to bring the school work to your home and instruct you there. With our district it was up to 5 hours a week but when the teacher is working one-on-one that is usually plenty of time. A 504 plan can also be requested and put in place to allow you certain "priviledges" to help you get through the school day.
                        Possible items for 504 plan can include:
                        •student needs to have permission to use the bathroom whenever she needs it.
                        •Abbreviated days for one month (until 4/08/10) for Reading and Math instruction. Meet to re-assess 3/31/10.
                        •Mother will look into need for homebound instruction
                        •Scheduled walking/bathroom break between every class
                        •Prompting to move around often
                        •Access to health room when requested
                        •Alternative seating when requested
                        •Water bottle allowed at desk
                        •Restricted diet – see addendum
                        •In mid-April, assess need for possible instruction in summer

                        This year a teacher actually asked HER what might help her in class. She came up with several ideas including being able to suck on hard candy in class, chewing gum. Teacher came up with rewards for when she is in all classes for the entire week. rewards include lunch with teacher, homework pass, etc.

                        School nurse is another very helpful person to have on your side. There are people there that can and will help, you and your parents/guardians just have to push and not take no for an answer.
                        I am the mother of two daughters. One is 11 and was diagnosed last year with IC, the oldest daughter is now 14 and was diagnosed with IC also at the age of 11 but only after many months of suffering and misdiagnoses until we found Dr. Atkins in Wes Chester, PA who has been a huge support for Megan. You see most IC specialist will not see children, he made an exception and gave her her life back! She had a cystoscopy and hydrodistension in December 2010 which confirmed the diagnosis.


                        Remember: You know yourself/your child. Don't let anyone convince you that "It's all in your/their head" or "you/they just don't want to go to work/school". Keep pushing until you get a doctor you are comfortable with and an answer that truly addresses the problems.

                          Hi, I'm new to homeschooling and would like to graduate early, can you tell me the information you have on how you achieved this?

                            While I couldn't attend school, my doctor was not very compassionate and wouldn't sign for homebound schooling. I would have rathered this option to regular homeschooling but I didn't have a choice. :/
                            The rules at my school are rather strict, and often even though I had doctors letters, I wasn't allowed to use the restroom or go to the office to call my mom when I was in pain, and I embarrassingly had to explain my condition to my teachers frequently, even though I didn't want to.
