Home Owner continues to ration out Daughter's test strips, and claims there aren't enough for her to test and treat for low blood sugars. She also is insisting on taking Daughter to a podiatrist--because she has diabetes.
I have explained that I am concerned that Daughter will seize on her need for a podiatrist as another opportunity to say "Woe is me. I am a diabetic." I have explained that the more they seek to control, the more Daughter will feel the need to rebel and prove she can't be controlled.
Apparently, though, since I am the mother who failed to consequence her and get her the professional help that would cure her, I am not credible.
