My son is in the process of being diagnosed with absence seizures. I am so confused about what all this entails. He also has several other problems that may/may not be related. I am just not sure what is going on with him. He is scared all the time, he can be playing in his room and will get scared and cover his ears/eyes immediately and shake. I have to repeat everything I say to him because it is like he doesn't hear me, he is in his "own little world". Looks off into space very frequently, and wets his pants on a daily basis. He cannot handle change and will break down into a crying fit if anything in his little world is changed. We moved when he was like 2 1/2 years old and again when he was 4, and you would have thought we were sending him away or something. He just could not seem to handle it. He cried the first week of school and still comes home crying if anyhting is out of order at school. Like if they cannot go to the computer lab and they go outside instead...etc. We are struggling to keep balance in his little life and I am trying to be patient...does anyone else have these symptoms in a child?
