Well, all is still pretty calm on the home front. My daughter has been doing really well, she has been calm, happy and collected. Her mood is stable and there hasn't really been any incidents. She has been home from the hospital going on 2 weeks. We had court today, that went well. She didn't get remanded, she got a 6 month extension on her aftercare services. She was very happy about that. She has been seeing this really great guy for about a week. HE HAS A JOB!!! And he took an entrance exam to a local college the other day. I love this guy. He gives my difficult child encouragement to do well and move forward with her life. He tells her things like: "You have to surround yourself with people who believe in you", he tells her fighting isn't worth it, that it takes a stronger mind to walk away from a fight then to throw a punch. He tells her to behave like a lady and she will get much more respect. I mean, am I dreaming or what??? I could have hand picked this guy myself. He dresses with the baggy pants, braids in his hair, looks like the typical ghetto boy, but looks are deceiving. He is intelligent and a perfect gentleman. (so far anyway) My daughter will no doubt ruin this for herself shortly. She does and says inappropriate things around him. She talks about other boys, she takes calls from other boys and is very loud and conspicuous. She wants to constantly hang out in the streets and he doesn't. I can really see the Borderline in her when she is with him. Shockingly, she actually was truthful with him about her being in the hospital and on medication. That doesn't seem to bother him a bit. She must be comfortable around him as she never reveals that side of her to anyone. I was thinking of explaining to him, a little bit about why she acts the way she does sometimes. But, is that a bit intrusive and out of line? I mean I can't go around telling everyone she is contact with, her issues. I just don't want to see her mess this one up. This guy is a keeper!!! What do you think?? Leave it alone and mind my business - right? On to the drugs.......She came home tonight asking for food at 11 pm. Right then and there I knew she had the munchies. I asked her if she was high and she was honest and said yes. I wasn't happy, but what can I do? I will tell her sw and her therapist at partial. She says she is only going to smoke once in a while. NOT!!! In a week she'll be getting high daily. I worry about how that affects her medication. Of course she isn't concerned one bit. I have given her the lecture on smoking weed and drinking a gizillion times!!! Other than tonights munchie attack I really can't complain. I am holding my breath and waiting for the other shoe to drop. I wish that I could believe that the chaos is over, but I know better. It's only a matter of time before she starts to lose it. How sad, I am so jaded at this point that I can only see the glass as half empty. Maybe by some miracle I am wrong. Well.......time will tell - right? Thanks for listening. I hope everyone is doing well.
