kt has become more self aware .... more interested in the diagnosis's she carries & what she can do about it. PCA & kt went to the library today ~ kt came home with a book on bipolar, a book on PTSD & information on Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) (there were no books on that topic). "Mom, since I have these things I need to learn about them." Okay then. I told kt that this is a good thing. I also asked her to not overwhelm herself with the information & to please please please ask questions. That not everything in a book about these disorders/illnesses is set in stone nor applies to her. "ktbug, sometimes knowledge is dangerous. I'd like to see you understand what is going on ~ I don't want to see you become obsessed or frightened." She agreed to the above & is writing down questions for me or therapist. While there is a level of maturity behind this there is also a push for freedom & a driver's permit. Aghhhhhh!
