yea i know i was shocked too for those of you who are shaking your heads. she is still eating, she is unmedicated yet hopefully that'll end soon once i meet with-doctor next week. i am putting t.v. in rm like everyone suggested. yet school? ten periods a day again, the kids asking questions about where were you? My answer you her was i think that's great you want to go back. why? she said i miss being in school, the kids,, being busy all day. i dont' like being home anymore. i listen to step brother who is in her class talk about the kids etc. and she wants to be part of it. i said you have alot of work to catch up on, we have to figure out how to get you sleeping and let's just keep working on that and set a goal for when you would return. we'll talk about it tmrw. any thoughts? i'm scared to death obviously. what if she relapses? she ate out of blue, what if she shuts down again? how does she even know if shes' ready or not? she was in an up mood first day might be a down mood. just really nervous. therapy just started and my thought is to let her get more therapy sessions under belt, talk about how she'll handle it all coping skills, let her get a medication that finally works than let her take a shot at it. i was so happy to hear her say it. i thought for sure she'd be a home schooled kid. i guess i'm afraid of failure for her. what if she goes back and fails than what? she'll be so upset and feel depleted. yea yea typical mom i know. any thoughts?? from my calmer friends here who often think out of the box for me really well.
