We have been to the therapist a few times now, she seems to think it will take intensive therapy that will teach my daughter to basically retrain herself in the way she thinks about herself and the world around her. Rebuild her self esteem and have a whole new approach on the way she sees and deals with things. Needless to say this will be a long road. She hasn't cut herself now ib over a month, she has been doing better about taking her meds which does help some with her anger.

I have visited a couple times and still not quite got the hang of all this yet but i guess just having a place to let it out will do for now. I am still tired all the time, but the last week or so has been a bit more pleasant. Thanx for listening

Hi, I really feel for you and thank god those grandchildren have you for a grandmother. This is very hard for you. I do know a bit what you are dealing with. My son had explosive rages and tantrums growing up. It seems that all we did was go for counselling, therapy, this and that. Never got a diagnosis. He left home at age 20 and began a journey of self destruction that has followed him for 10 years. Gambling, gaming addiction on the computer, He was ultimately diagnosed with Aspergers about 9 years ago. I never agreed with that diagnosis and another specialist said he has Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Unfortunately we are estranged and this is the way it has to be for my sanity. I think if one wants to change, one has to have the desire to change. My son does not.

Your daughter, well it seems that she is trying.
And with two little ones, well I feel for you. You must be thoroughly exhausted.

I commend you for being there for your daughter and her kids. You are a true example of a mom who will go to the ends of the earth to help her offspring.

I wish you well.

Merry Christmas,

Melody

I
