DS is sick again. I just need to vent.

It's the freaking middle of the summer and DS is sick again. He was sick a week and a half ago with a high fever & a rash and sore throat. He finally got well a few days ago, and now he's running 103 fever AGAIN. We've had him allergy tested and we've had his immune system tested, and all are fine. But he keeps on getting ill. NONE of the other daycare kids get sick this much. And when he gets sick, he runs a HIGH fever every.single.time.

I'm so tired of him being sick. It's to the point where I just get annoyed and angry at the world. I'm angry for me (pity party) and for him. When does it get better. Please tell me it gets better.

Re: DS is sick again. I just need to vent.

I remember wanting to put my youngest in a bubble until he turned 18! I feel your pain, I remember joking with his pedi that we were just doing our bi weekly check in with her because that's just what we did over the winter!
My son had everything you could catch, suffer from, or get an infection with. He saw so many specialists that he had an "ist" collection that was pretty extensive. I had to stop doing daycare(my job) FT as he was just always ill or had dr appts and I was unreliable(something I always prided myself on was my reliability).
It does get better. They grow & get stronger. They start being proactive about hand washing & covering noses & mouths when sneezing/coughing, and most importantly....stop putting the world in their mouths!!

Hugs. It sucks.

Ooooo... You know what helped my son? Probiotics like BioSaluud. Get good bacteria in his system. It helps!

My daughter is 18 and she's been like this her whole life. She misses more school than anybody else I know. She'll be in college this fall, and I worry about how it will go because she misses so many days.

She's sick constantly from mid August to Late spring.

Although she does have allergies. But, obviously her immune system is lousy too.

We had been doing probiotics and I'm definitely going to start them again.

I hear you! My son got RSV at 2 months old and has pretty much been sick every other week since then with a cold. It's SO rough! My 3 yr old has croup AGAIN, too. I'm sooo over illness!
