...that difficult child doesn't have the therapist snowed like so many horror stories I've read about here. difficult child bluntly told therapist that my treatment of her borders on abuse. Just plain shock. Shocked. She has *no* idea. None. OMG. She is the most egocentric person on the planet!!! I'm not 100% confident in my anonymity on the board with difficult child (maybe her paranoia is wearing off on me, but I'd rather err on the side of caution at the moment), so I'll leave the rest for later. Suffice it say, I have a very sick child that really needs intensive treatment but with no known ways to fund it. By the time I left the appointment, my muscles were painfully tensed and actually bulging around my neck and shoulders. I came home, smoked a cigarette, took a klonopin, changed clothes, peed, and smoked another cigarette. And now I'm going to go play some mindless games on pogo and try to relax so I can get some sleep. I've been up over 24 hours. If you have some strength to spare, I could use some.
