    I send difficult child a text yesterday asking a question and I knew she wasn't allowed to have her phone until breaks so I didn't expect an answer right away. To my surprise she did answer and this was our conversation:

    Me: Why do you have your phone, did you get fired (that fear never goes away)
    difficult child: (after a very long time which made me very nervous) No I'm on my way to a drug test
    Me: WHY???
    difficult child: (after a very long time again making me very very nervous) No it's my random test that I have to do four times a year
    Me: Oh ok, are you going to pass?
    difficult child: Of course

    I waited about a half hour until I felt certain she was finished

    Me: Are you done?
    difficult child: Yes
    Me: Did you pass?
    difficult child: With flying colors!

    Hallelujah! Good for her!

    Yes, those old fears never die. I am always waiting for the other shoe to drop, although I act very casual, it's just a front. Inside, I always think the wheels are going to fall off again.

    Yay!!! Of course even when mine passes, I start to worry if he faked his way through. Does that ever go away?

    I don't think so coma. We still jump everytime the phone rings and the caller ID shows her number.
