When Good News Is Bad News

Psychiatrist was impressed with how well Daughter has been coping, so she stretched the time between appointments out from 1 month to 2 months. Daughter promptly came home and fell apart. She even tried to convince me she needed to be admitted to the psych unit tonight.
I should have known better than to praise her. She was terrified. If she's doing better, more might be expected of her. She's not ready for more responsibility. She's not ready to grow up. She finally pulled it together after several hours, but much of the evening had been lost.
Hopefully tomorrow will be an easier day for her.
