22 year old daughter with learning difficulties low energy levels
Hi, Please has anyone similar experience or suggestions for solution. My 22 year old daughter was diagnosed with learning difficulties at school but no label was given only that she had a much lower than average IQ. She has always had problems with energy levels but it is since she has needed to work that this has become a hugh problem. She has been sacked from several jobs now because she has too much time off. She also seems to suffer with possibly IBS and really bad period pains. She has been to the doctors a few times but they only seem to suggest changing her diet but she doesn't like eating the "healthier" options. She spends most of her time in bed these days either sleeping or watching tv. Sometimes I don't know whether she is just being lazy. I don't know whether to be much tougher with her as I'm fully aware that life has been and is more difficult. She is also picky with the jobs she wants to do i.e. she doesn't want to work with food again as this makes her feel sick but is this linked with her not so normal brain?
Can anyone comment with similar experience or advice? She is moving away soon to another town to live with her boy friend and I am afraid that she will end up living on benefits for the rest of her life.
