Several hours after giving me a list of all the things that she "needs" for Halloween (but she can wear them everyday, too, she says) that she was nice enough to add up and it comes to $200 (I'm not working remember?), difficult child has the nerve to come in here and start with the...why are you so mean to me, you never listen to me, the only time I cry anymore is when I've been around you. Mind you, this was completely out of the blue. What prompted this? I'm tired and I'm sick and she came in the living room a couple of hours ago and turned on the overhead light. I hate the overhead light. It hurts my eyes. When she walked out of the room leaving it on, I told her to come back and turn it off. Apparently, I didn't use the right tone. Oh. And she also doesn't need her medications. It's stupid and they don't work. I guess that's really what started it (after the light thing) because I told her that I wasn't having that conversation. She kept going and I told her she needed to stop and leave me alone - that I wasn't doing this. Then, I'm mean, I don't listen, I'm always mad at her and she only cries when she's around me. Then she tries to get out of it by saying she wants to fix these things. Yeah, right. She uses this circular reasoning because that's the only way she get around any valid points I bring up. And the blame is always on me. It's the same old tired arugments every time and I told her that I'm sick of rehashing everything because unless she hears what she wants to, she just argues more. Her perception is so skewed. It always has been. She's always been so hypersensitive that it doesn't matter how much I weigh my words or bite my tongue, I just cannot win. Everyone is mean and out to get her. I bend over backwards for this child. But, I'm just mean. If only she had a nicer mother. Maybe she should go find one.
