whether your lucky number is one, or two...here is a love song, punkmama style for you all today!
so i come here, cause you are my virtual village.
i heard today that a kid i treated last year was found dead of an overdose yesterday morning. she was 15.
then, i processed this with her four closest friends that are in treatment at this time.
that is why i am bummed out. it is not my first client to die, but it is the first one since i have been working with teenagers. i will work that out.
here is the input i need...
not a godwin, but remember this discussion?
well look what has happened...
i am not sure how i feel about this, i have to think about it a minute. what do you mamas think? is this abuse that warrants removal?
i mean seriously, my child is brilliant. writes his name. is incredibly creative. paints. draws. makes hilarious jokes. is so caring about others. he is so cool, i can't believe it. he is also 4 years old, turned 4 at the beginning of november, and will. not. poop. on the potty. he has been pee trained for 2 years. TWO YEARS. he wears underpants. he never pees his pants, never poops his pants. holds it. asks for a pull up, gets it, puts it on himself, goes. sometimes struggles with letting me clean him up, tries to avoid it i mean, procrastinates. wakes up dry almost all the time.
so like, i don't know, about 10 or so years ago, it was probably longer than that cause i was still with my ex husband, i took over the annual xmas eve dinner, that is to say, i laid down the law that i was a grown up with my own kitchen and could hostess ONE holiday as such.
hey, has anybody else seen this? it has probably already been posted...i am a total lurker these days, but of course thought of the collective "you" when i saw this...
i was fascinated, at times a little queased out,
(i guess just a visceral response to seeing the inside of a body, which i don't particularly like, one of the many reasons that i don't want to be a medical doctor...)
but wow, what a cool thing to see like that...thoughts??
i wish i could be this calm and commanding. is there a way to put this clip on a loop on TBN? CMT? FOX?
a friend posted this on myspace and it melted me a bit. learned religious people with kind hearts are like a balm to me, and quench a little bit of my scorn. i struggle with facing hate with more hate. this helped a little. i know, i know. there are people like this out there. i wish there were more of them and less of the ones who voted in california and elsewhere on tuesday.
