On the nights she doesn't climb into bed with me, she'll wake me up and ask me to "re-tuck" her in. Which is really cute when you speak of it in the daylight, but, at 3am, after an hour of sleep when you're mind is fuzzy from the ativan and seroquel "sleep aids"...not so cute.
DT set the time limitation of 10pm for me about a year ago, and I figure that my "mental" age was about 7 or 8. So after 10, I just have to "deal" with it! I'm wondering....would it be inappropriate to set that same limit for my daughter?
Put the big "CLOSED" sign on the door? Sorry, sista, save it for the morning. Not to early, though! Gotta set the limits or you're never gonna grow up.
Of course I'm joking about telling my daughter I won't *help* her after 10.
I guess I'm just continuing to spit out the bitterness about DT doing that to me!
Angry teenager says, "Told you she would...you're such a dumbass for believing she would be there! HELLO! Just because she was there for 2 years - oh, let me add again...she was doing everything in her power to win over your *trust*...and once she had it - SORRY - the office is now closed!"
I've been there 24-7 for over 7 years- don't you think I can set the 10 pm boundary with her? She has to learn sometime not to count on people.
So, I got my drugged up, dissociative ass out of bed at 3am last night, and "re-tucked" DD back into bed and then stumbled my way back down the hall to my own room to once again enjoy the drive-in horror movies.
No bitterness! It's all part of the MHMP (mental health manipulative process) ~ I'm sure.
