- She might really be sick, but she'd lied to me about being sick so many times to get attention, I didn't believe her.
- Her attempts to engage me by making herself sick were pushing me further away.
- I had set aside all Sunday afternoon and evening to do things with her, and she chose to sleep instead.
- Her current strategy isn't working.
- If she wants my attention, she'd be better off being cooperative and responsible, which makes her happy and gives me time to spend with her.
Once we got to the church, I realized I forgot to give her milk with breakfast, which meant she hadn't had enough carbs for the insulin I gave her. I handed her some crackers I keep in my office for lows to make up for the lack of milk. She refused to eat them.
I have informed her that I will not listen to her complaints about not feeling well that are a direct result of her refusal to take care of herself. (She also didn't brush her hair this morning). She has responded by "sleeping". She's ignoring me and unresponsive to anything I say to her this morning. I don't think I'll be very responsive when she starts texting and calling me today to tell me how sorry she is, or that she's really sick. I know that won't help, but I'm tired of the games.
She sees her new therapist again this afternoon. I hope she can get through to her, because I sure can't.
After I wrote and posted this, I read an email that sent me to this post. Think there's a message for me in there?
