last night I wanted difficult child out of my house. And I wasn't thinking respite. She's so cold, so defiant, so angry and lashing out at me, so selfish and so headstrong in her own self-defeat. She's so critical and spews venom and it's always everyone else who is being mean to her. I was so angry with her last night that I just felt empty. She's verbally abusive and she's manipulative. I didn't take that cr@p from her father or easy child's father. I'm sure as heck not going to take it from my child. I know she's only 13. How horrible is that? I love my child. But I can't stand to be around her.
