Another Fun Monday

Today has been another fun Monday. I hate Mondays. i just can’t seem to get my butt in gear.

I realize I never even updated my readers about how the visit to urgent care with my step-daughter turned out. Well, it was as we expected. All of her labs and tests came back just fine. She is a perfectly healthy teenage girl. She is either experiencing these symptoms as a result of stress (geeze, I wonder why) or she is doing it for attention. She might also just be complaining for the sake of complaining, according to the doctor. This would be a kind of unconscious vie for attention that she wouldn’t even be aware she’s doing. I’m thinking it’s a combination of all of these things.

The poor girl is under stress. I think she worries that I am going to get fed up with her dad’s bullshit and throw them all out on the street. I would never, ever throw my step-daughter on the street. It just wouldn’t happen. I think she also worries that I am going to just finally lose my patience with her mother and eliminate the problem. As much as I hate my step-daughter’s mother, I would not do that either. I know how that would affect my step-children. That doesn’t mean I won’t make her mother pay for the things she does to my step-daughter and step-son, but I will do it through legal channels.

On the bright side of things, my step-daughter has stopped complaining about her stomach (until I mentioned we were having breakfast casserole for dinner). But in all honesty, the complaints have gotten much better.

Having five kids living in the same house is not easy for anyone. Having three children, two step-children (one with depression and one with BPD symptoms) and a BPD husband is enough to drive anyone mad. Thank you, my readers, whom I adore, for listening to me vent all the time. Laughing with me, crying with me and (for some of you) wanting to beat the heck out of my husband’s ex with me. You are all amazing people. Happy Monday to all of you! I hope you have a wonderful week.
