@michelleAG05 I love San Pellegrino drinks (they have a lemon one) and Trader Joe's has sparkling pink lemonade and limeade and a raspberry lemonade that's really good too! I HATE sparkling water, I hate a seltzer taste and I was hoping that I would like La Croix but I don't. The San Pellegrino one is a little tart, Trader Joe's is much sweeter
This is a random and a BF and a TW and a FFFC all in one and probably super long and I apologize but I don't know how to make it a spoiler to shrink it.
DD is driving me INSANE. She's 15 and a freshman, she's a decent kid (no drugs or drinking, no sneaking out) but she just does NOTHING. She doesn't study for tests or quizzes and gets 30s, she doesn't do her homework and online quizzes gets 0s, gives the teachers excuses "It wouldn't let me submit it" "We didn't have internet" She's in danger of failing two classes for the year and says "I'll get my act together". I monitor her grades closely, reach out to guidance and the teachers and tell her when I see she has a test or something due. It doesn't matter. She is responsible for her two cats, as she has been for the past 6 years. Doesn't change the litter box, doesn't feed them or give them water, doesn't clean up the fuball/vomit mess, she has to be told EVERY DAY and still says "I did" and didnt. She brings food and drinks into her room and we have no forks/cups/tupperware because she has them all. She's had ants in her room, mice from the food. Doesn't care.
I give up. I told her yesterday, don't ask me or DH (her stepdad) for anything, no friends over no rides anywhere no nothing. I just can't do this anymore, I stress over her grades and her mess and she just couldn't care less. We've tried therapy...she doesn't get anything out of it and she thinks it's stupid and a waste of her time. She's on antidepressants so her attitude has been much better the past year but she just does nothing. I ask nicely, I yell, I nag. I just don't know what else to do, I'm tired and swollen and dealing with the terrible two's and being pregnant and working full time. I just have nothing more to give and I feel like a terrible mother but I don't know what else to do.
@zande2016 we had a neuropsychological evaluation done in 8th grade because they had put her on ADD meds and they weren't helping, it showed that she has test anxiety and mild ADD but did not need an IEP, I tried to get a 504 plan in the school for her, they do allow her to have extra time for testing but as far as extensions on assignments they wont give her anything because sometimes she does them, sometimes she doesn't.
She's still interested in dance, she would still dance in the regular class if she fails (I can't take the one thing she does away from her) but I won't let her compete, which I know will crush her and she even said to me last night something about the comp classes going through summer and I said "Well if you fail you won't be taking them, we've talked about this" and she got mad and walked away. She's on Prozac which has helped immensely, I'm thinking it's part teenage issues and part her just not caring. She seems to think she can skate by and do whatever she wants and nothing will ever happen.
@lindsayleigh1989 thank you
@wildtot I LOVE the chiropractor, you shouldn't have to go into too much detail they will typically ask where the pain is and adjust you, but a little more gently because you're pregnant. You might be a little sore tonight or tomorrow though, but the end result is so worth it! I'm going every two weeks now until my due date. Good luck!!
