Thoughts About Fed Up

Some thoughts about the last post:

First of all, I now know why Jordan didn't want to take a shower.  This is when she struggled with dermatillomania, and she still does. Today she asks me for help, and I do (more details about this to come later).  Back then she did not ask for help, and I had no idea.

Second of all, I was super stressed about traveling, so I can only imagine how she felt. It's difficult to be in someone else's home. That's all I'm going to say about that.

Thirdly, she was given a time restraint. It may have been four hours, but that didn't matter.  It was pressure, and any amount of pressure freaked her out. 

What else? 

Oh yeah.  I'm 100% positive that her behaviors were not being done for our benefit. Make that 1,000,000% positive. Although she has learned and grown and thrived, while living away at school for the past two years (I think more than any of us ever thought possible) it hasn't always been easy.  And here's why I believe this is true: 

A person who is born a Superhero will always be a Superhero. 

But no worries, because we can't forget about the trusty sidekicks.  Batman has Robin, Shrek has Donkey, SpongeBob has Patrick, and Jordan will always have Us. 😍

Thank you.

Us Too
