My Troubled 16 Year Old
I have a 16 yr old and she stuggles everyday with Bipolar disorder type 2 (agression depression) and anger control problems and anxiety. She has been in an out of recpit,detention,hospitals and is now residing in a group home called 'The Glovehouse' she has been there for 5 months now. The last year of my life as her mom has consisted of - court rooms,cops,lawyers,case workers,and probation.
Now don't get me wrong my Kasie is a good kid she really is! She just has mental issues that run her life most of the time and I know what she's going through because I also have Bipolar but I have type 1 (depression). When Kasie is having a 'good day' she is very cool and fun to be around, she has a great sense of humor and is game for just about anything. She is very easy to talk to and also a good listener too. I love her with all my heart and wish I could just snap my fingers and make her all better so her life would ne normal and much easier to live. She's suppose to be gone for a year but I am going to try and appeal her case soon, I feel she has come a long ways and is now ready to come home. I miss her so much and need her home now, she's missing so much of her life here at home.
Please pray for my daughter!
