  1. Yes! Ds17 also took it today and said the same thing. We've been working on practice tests in a book, and they also had 4 sections. He also said that there were some more spaces for answers than there were questions on the test. This is the first SAT that he has taken. I hope he's right!
  2. It does sound like it could be migraines. Is it possible to have migraine pain behind both eyes? He also has a tingling sensation on the bridge of his nose. Is that common in migraines? Is it unusual to have a migraine every day, on and off? Tap- it could be his sinuses. He doesn't seem very congested, but I'm sure the doctor will check it out. I doubt it's from studying. He should be doing more of that!
  3. Ds20 has been having headaches, sometimes severe, over the last couple of weeks. The first one was on February 13, with pain behind the eyes. It's not a throbbing pain, and it is behind both eyes. The first headache, he had nausea and vomited, but he hasn't had that since. In the last week, he has had a less severe headache every day, in the middle of the day. He is under a lot of stress. He's on his own (his choice), living with his girlfriend and roommates, working and going to the university. He plans on getting married (big wedding) in October. He had mono in August. Do you think this could be related? He had swollen lymph nodes on his neck with the mono, and one of them is swollen again. He's going to make an appointment with a doctor today. We are trying to find him a good primary care doctor. Any advice on what he should have checked? Shawn
  4. MIch elle,


    Thank you! I really wanted to homeschool him, but he really wants to get out with other kids. I think this all-boys school will be good for him. The kids seem polite, and the school seems very focused on college.


    Thanks for your input!

  5. Just wanted you to know that sending our oldest ds to an all boys Catholic high school was the best decision for us. He's in his second year after homeschooling K-8 and likes the school, teachers, and sports. The school is academically demanding so it's not all fun & games, but it's been good for him and our family.


    Good luck to your & your family!
