I am just not a drama person. I like a simple rather quiet life. It just never ends around here-up and down! difficult child just isn't alive unless there is drama. She has attended 3 after care sessions at her first Residential Treatment Center (RTC). She says she wants to graduate from the program through after care yet, she has not called her counselor back (he is hard to get-but ...) to make arrangements. I know she is not being honest-she is not telling them she is smoking pot at least 2X a week for what I can tell-and she is pretty wasted when she does. She comes home and eats and eats (she has gained so much weight) and she then sleeps. She quit her job last Tuesday. Said she had a feeling they were going to fire her anyway. She said she wanted to go to school. In Feb? What college is going to take her? She is going to have to wait for the scholarship she has to kick in this fall because I am not paying for her to go to school. She doesn't follow through with anything. How will she finish school work? She got her paycheck on Friday and went to the Alt. school to put in her papers to walk at graduation (they let the school age kids who get GED walk). We made her give us $100.00 bucks to hold. She had about $90.00. Gone in one day! On what? she even had the nerve to as for $25.00 so she can have her nails done on a Sunday. When you don't have a job, owe your parents money, you sure as he// dont get your nails done. When we tell her no she continues to try to control things. She doesn't scream but raises her voice and goes on and on, we all walk away and don't respond. She was told right away she would have to pick up more chores around the house since she wasn't working. She has not done one thing since loading the dishwasher on Wed. I won't nag and beg. It is going to be a lot of "no" going on. You want to go somewhere and have a ride? NO! You want me to make something for dinner? NO! No effort to find a new job either. No common sense. What the heck is the pay off for her? She has horrible relationships with us and many of her friends and she has no drivers lisence, no car, no job, no past times. So much wasted potential! I know better than to care this much, but I still have hope. Maybe I need brain surgery!
