My youngest son had the same problem. It was caused by stress. His mother and I were going through a divorce and there was always yelling. We went through a bunch of Miralax which helped but didn't stop the problem. I took him on my own to a therapist and she asked me about stress in the household. Once I knew what the cause was, I refused to argue with his mother. I would walk away from the argument and put my pride aside. He slowly got better and now 5 years later he is fine. I have noticed that when he is going through a lot of stress with school or a girlfriend he complains about his stomach. I give him some fiber and he is fine.View Thread
Hello everyone. I'm new to the site and am looking for some information. We have a 17 yr old daughter. She is a smart and caring girl but there are some underlying issues that we are trying to figure out. She is very outgoing in sports and is Capt. of her Volleyball team. The problem that we are having with her is that she lies about certain things. Whenever there is a stressful situation where she has done something wrong and we guestion her, her facts are always wrong or lies. We assumed they were lies but she sticks to her guns and we believe that she actually believes she is telling the truth. We have spoken with several of her close friends and she tells them the same thing she is telling us. Even after a long period of time, we will bring up specific incidents and her story is always the same. It's like she really believes it. She either is a very good liar and has convinced herself and believes her own lies or there is some king of mental disorder that causes her to remember things differently. If there is such a disorder, I would be very gratefull to know what it is so I can read up on it. I would very much like to help her so we can get passed the drama and enjoy her last year of High School.
