Hi all....been a few weeks...not a lot of new things to report....I'm feeling a ton better....getting some treatment for my little triggers and that seems to help a great deal.....one of my girl's teachers came by to inform me that she is now flunking most of her classes...probably won't graduate and is ditching her classes. She is moving up the ranks in the little gang, and through some of her actions....was able to pin the blame for things she did on another student. So this student is now being sent to another school.. lots of drama for little kids. But...my new kids...the ones filling my time....wow....the issues, things they have done and things that have been done to them....their reality is beyond anything a writer could come up with. I wish I had kept a diary to chart my evolution / devolution, spiral into hell...not sure what to call it....but all I know is when I work with them, I feel so alive, so effective....but then....when they leave....the reality is.....I'm putting a bandaid on a wound that needs a surgeon and a lot more... but....I try to convince myself that something is better than nothing. How are u doing soulful and fledgling????? hope life is going well..
