Current: A Disturbing Call

Yesterday afternoon I received a phone call from Daughter, who was with Case Manager.  Daughter was obviously upset, and was crying.  They put the call on speaker phone.  Case Manager was confronting Daughter with everything wrong she'd done at the new house.  Apparently she's been getting up at 6:00 a.m. and blasting her music, and has not always been cooperative with staff.  I reminded Daughter again of the importance of respecting staff, and that she has both ear phones and ear buds for her music. 

Of course she wanted to die, and needed to leave right away, and....  Once she was done being dramatic, we were able to talk.  She was embarrassed more than anything, and couldn't figure out why the staff didn't come to her with the problems instead of going to the Case Manager.  I think she has a good point....
