Okay, so maybe I am being a little harsh or over reacting, but, sometimes I feel like my SD is trying to drive a wedge between me and my spouse, its like my SD wants to bicker with me and wants to make me out to be the bad guy, over little things too! I really think its a phase because she hasn't been like this until the last few months. Maybe? I don't know. Help?
So we went to counseling and it helped to be heard.
The psychologist suggested I read up on borderline disorder in regards to SD11. She has signs of a budding personality disorder due to the emotional trauma her AM has put her through since adopting her. I could absoultely see a personality disorder developing. We'll see what happens there. At least I have the direction of a professional.
SD11's last cheer competition was today. HURRAY! Goodbye ridiculous monthly cost. And then, whenever-the-heck costs for whatever-the-heck. I am not paying for next season.
Did SD11 thank me once for enrolling her in competitive cheer? Did she thank me once for the ongoing payments I made so that she could finish out the season? Nope. Not once.
So... I am home alone with SD11 and my baby ds. DH is at work. SD11 used to follow me everywhere talking or repeating things I have said. ((, outside with the dog, on a walk with the baby, into my bedroom, closet., laundry room, etc.)) She said hello and made a few complimentary comments about the baby’s new toy and a very general statement about how school is almost over. Then she helped me shut some windows and I said thank you. As I took the baby to the front door to go outside, she tugged my shirt down over my lovehandles; I said, “I’m ok.
I met my DH 9 years ago and we got married a couple years later. He has 2 daughters who are now 17 and 16 and I have 2 bios who are 17 and 15. I know, 4 teenagers right!!! I believe at first my dh and I were naive in that we thought we could blend a family. I did not know what I was up against as far as BM went at all. She was unmedicated with huge mental health issues, had disowned a teenage son from another marriage, and a completely horrible person.
I have a SD13 who has been tempermental from the start. She has done everything in her power to try to get me to leave her dad, beginning at age 10.
