[QUOTE=heartlandguy]Look who is intuitive now! ;)

The counselor told me after two sessions that we were doing the right things as parents. Great! We had no reason to feel guilty about the problems; that made us sleep so much better. :rolleyes: We used light but supportive reins on her throughout high school so we wouldnít lose her altogether. It was bumpy but nothing horrible happened (that we know about :confused: ). She was pressured into going to a community college but lasted only a semester. Now, she seems satisfied with her job but we know she is capable of doing so much better. The main thing is she seems happy and gets along great with us now. She calls her mom daily and visits us at least once per week. cíest la vie

Looking back, I think we did the best we could once she became a teenager. If I could change anything, I would have tried to interest her in selecting possible careers while in sixth grade. I think if they arenít thinking about careers then, they wonít until it is too late.

Goody, you said that you didnít decide on nursing until you were a high school junior. Did you realize when you entered high school that you wanted a career that most likely would require a college education? I think that attitude is more important than knowing which career that might be. -Heartland[/QUOTE]

I don't recall taking anything too seriously...I always dreamed of doing something with children...mostly of becoming a mother. Looking back on it my biographies were always on the angels of mercy like Florence Nightengale & Sarah Barton. But as a kid I was petrified of needles and doctors. Figure that ;) Anyway, in my junior year I met my best friend and we both went off to a 4 year college....I think we motivated each other. I specialized in Pediatrics...developed some disc problems in my late 20's and had my kids and put the career pretty much behind me. I found after having my own kids it pretty difficult to see the chronically ill kids I was working wiht...mosly AIDS and cancers.

A BIG UPDATE: TOM & I JUST LEARNED FROM OUR YOUNGER DAUGHTER THAT OUR OLDER DAUGHTER HAS BEEN SUPPLIED AND BEEN TAKING PILLS THAT SHE GOT FROM SOMEONE AT WORK!!!!! MONTHS AGO MY OLDER DAUGHTER CAME TO ME & OPENLY TOLD ME THAT SHE FELT BAD AND HAD TAKEN A STACKER PILL GIVEN TO HER BY A GIRL AT WORK...THE SAME ONE WITH THE SUSPENDED LICENSE, IN ORDER TO HAVE MORE ENERGY. SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE GOT SCARED AFTER READING INFO ON THE INTERNET OF HOW THEY CAN REALLY HURT YOU. AT THE TIME I TOLD HER HOW PROUD I WAS THAT SHE CAME TO ME AND WENT ON TO TELL HER AS A NURSE HOW CAFFEINE/DIET PILLS ALONE OR IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER MEDICATIONS COULD KILL YOU. NOW I AM NOT SURE WHAT SHE TOOK....I PULLED UP STACKERS ON THE INTERNET TO HAVE MY YOUNGER DAUGHTER IDNTIFY THE PILLS SHE DISCOVERED & WAS PAID $30 TO KEEP QUIET ABOUT BY MY OLDER DAUGHTER. MY YOUNGER DAUGHTE SAYS THEY WERE CAPSULES THAT SMELLED BAD WITH WHITE ON ONE SIDE AND ANOTHR COLORFUL COLOR ON THE OTHER. I HAVE A CALL INTO THE COUNSELOR TO TELL HER ABOUT THIS AND ASK HER ADVICE ON HOW WE SHOULD HANDLE THE INFORMATION. TOM WENT UP TO THE BAGEL STORE & ASKED THE WORKERS AND BOSS SHAT IT MAY BE & ALSO INFORMED THEM THAT KAITLIN WOULD NO LONGER BE WORKING THERE!!! MISTAKE?????

I'M IN SHOCK & DISBELIEF....NEVER DID I THINK....BUT IT ALL MAKES SENSE. SHE'S BEEN IRRITABLE, ANGRY, STATING SHE'S NOT HUNGRY ALL OF WHICH ARE SIDE EFFECTS OF CAFFEINE BUT COULD BE SOMETHING MORE. MY YOUNGER DAUGHTER ALSO INFORMED US SHE CAME ACROSS A LETTER WRITTEN BY HER SISTER SAYING THAT THE WORKER THAT SUPPLIED HER WITH THESE PILLS WHEN ASKED HOW SHE COULD REPAY HIM ASKED FOR SEXUAL FAVORS WHICH SHE REFUSED TELLING HIM HOW SHE HAD A BF AND HE HAD A GF AND THAT IT WOULDN'T BE RIGHT. HE WENT ON TO TOUCH HER IN UNCOMFORTABLE WAYS AND SHE WENT TO HER MANAGER (FEMALE DAUGHTER OF BOSS IN HER 20'S) WHO ACCORDING TO THE LETTER HAS BEEN HELPING MY DAUGHTER THROUGH THIS.

HELP....THE COUNSELOR JUST CALLED AND WANTS TO MEET BEFORE WE CONFRONT OUR DAUGHTER & SUGGESTS WE CONFRONT HER AT HOME AFTER HER FIRST SESSION. WHAT DO YOU ALL THINK....GOODY
