My 2 1/2 year old son gets sick EVERY SINGLE TIME he has visitation with his father. Mind you, visitation is supervised, 2 hours, every 6-8 weeks at this point. But... for the 6TH TIME IN A ROW (last visitation was last Thursday), my son was out of sorts and feverish and now sick, for almost a week after visitation. Right after visitation, my son gets very aggressive and defiant and completely off the wall, and then a couple days later, he gets sick. EVERY TIME. We travel an hour and a half by car and the supervisor is someone I know and trust, and visitation is in a public place (library), but my son comes home and is sick 1-2 days after. EVERY SINGLE TIME. His father is a monster (history of abuse towards me and my older son, never touched the baby, baby never witnessed anything after two months old), but the supervised visitations go pretty uneventful, I'm told, nothing negative is said about me, although his father does pump up his ego telling my son he's "just like him" and how "he's awesome because he's Greek" (once, he did slip and make a reference along the lines of "too bad you're only half Greek" to my son, but to my knowledge, that was the only time, and we do have a very good supervisor who nipped that in the bud) and I don't let anyone talk negatively about my son's father in any situation where he might overhear, so I don't think it's that. My son is okay with strangers, as his father somewhat is, but he knows, trusts, and loves the supervisor, so it's not like he's thrown in with complete strangers. I do get stressed and nervous about leaving my son with this monster, but I hide it very well and when I drop my son off, I kiss him, don't linger, tell him, "have fun", pretend I'm happy he's having visitation, etc, so I don't think my son is picking up on my stress. Especially not enough to make himself SICK.
Has anyone ever had a situation where their child is getting sick after every visitation and you can't figure out why? It's not something I can bring up in court without sounding like a psycho, but if there's something I can do to ease things for my son, I wish I knew.
