Drama, Part Two....

Emma has been acting weird lately.

I mean, more weird than usual....sometimes, I've wondered if she's 'on something'....although I'm not really good at deciphering that.....it's the one thing that I haven't been given a very good perception about.....

I mean,...have a kid lie to me an I can usually spot it a mile away, have a kid try to deceive me and it's glaring in my face, ...have a kid living with me, 'on something'..well, I will admit to being kinda dense about it.

Of course, Emma wouldn't admit it to me..most kids in their right minds wouldn't.....finally, last night, when she was driving me bonkers, (as she's been doing daily for a couple of months now...at least a couple of months...time does pass quickly, the only saving grace..)....I spoke to her about it.

'Emma, what is going on with you.....you're 16 years old, but you're certainly not acting it....you go around talking very dramatically, reacting dramatically to everything ...why aren't you at least acting like you're 16 years old?'

Emma started to flounce off...yes, flounce...if anything, she's dramatic......she says....

'I act normal at school, but here I'm just bored...'

Bored,...so, I've been subjected to this obnoxious behaviour, for I don't know how long because she's bored......

Good grief....Lord help us.

Oh, I pray she's not "on something." My oldest step daughter developed an addiction to prescription medicine (at 18, she can see the dr. and get whatever he gives her without us knowing). It's been a painful process of withdrawal. For everyone. Hopefully your daughter is just experiencing normal teenage angst!

If boredom is the problem, I'm glad, because it could be much worse...stuff I'm hoping to never ever deal with...ever!
