Gah! How does one knock some sense into the senseless child?!
So as some of you may remember my girl has been having a difficult time of in in college since last Spring. She has blown each semester since and this semester was the worst. Plus she keeps coming home all the time instead of staying at her apartment which costs more a month than our mortgage payment. Last week she decided she didn't have to go to class at all. I was so angry but, as usual, she wouldn't listen to reason.
At her counseling appointment this week, the counselor says. "How are you?" My girl responds, "Okay."
So I took it to her. And happily discovered that all of her issues are still being heavily influenced by depression and anxiety. I say happily because I was at my wits end. Now we have a course of action that might help.
But just now I asked her how she felt about not going on her semester at sea like she had planned. She said, "I kind of wish I had."
I'm like really? With you coming home all the time and blowing all but one of your classes?"
She says, "Yes. I think I could have handled it. It might have been better."
