Ok. I can deal with the severely parted hair covering half her face. I can deal with the colored hair extensions, the black clothes, the gobs of black eyeliner, the black nailpolish, the black choker and even the nose ring. But, vampire fangs? This is her newest desire. And she found some that you put some goop on, put it over your tooth and press it there for a few minutes. It then molds to the tooth and she can pop them in and out whenever she wants. Fortunately, my mom is an EFDA (Expanded Functions Dental Assistant) and I can get her to say that it's bad for her teeth. But, why would she do this? It makes no sense. She *hates* people looking at her. She thinks they're laughing at her or making fun of her. And she gets a lot of looks now with her definite Goth thing going on. I told her that people would definitely stare with the vampire fangs. She said she didn't care. Uh huh. I know better. If she hates it so much, why do something that's going to create more of the thing you hate? She said she's confused. She said she's somewhere between Goth and Emo and she doesn't know which she really is. I, of course, explained that you don't need to label yourself. But, I did ask her why she would want to be Emo because Emo kids want to be miserable. She said, no they don't want to be, they just are. Makes ya wonder how much she's going to get out of therapy, doesn't it? And I was just so proud of her for noticing the improvement with the lexapro - said she was more outgoing and smiling more. I can't stand this.
