Attitude

When you are dealing with someone with bipolar disorder and they are not taking their meds there is only one way to get them to do as you ask. You must adjust your attitude, not put them down, don’t yell at them, just ask them in an even toned voice and they usually will comply. I have noticed this is the only way my son will do as I ask and we have been getting on nicely the past two days.

My son has a bad temper and he gets really nasty when I show my anger towards him so I have adopted a new way of dealing with him and that is adjusting my attitude. He is an avid League of Legends player and we sat and talked about the game today and it was common ground that kept us talking instead of fighting. It’s hard for me to remember to be nice and not to bitch because I get so overwhelmed with so much shit to care for every day.

My son isn’t a bad kid he just has issues that need to be medicated but he refuses to comply and I cannot make him. He is so damn intelligent but refuses to apply himself in school because he hates school and gets bored easily, I am hoping to get him enrolled in college this fall so he can finish high school and work at college at the same time. He says he wants to be a teacher which blows my mind because he called one of his teachers a cunt  and that didn’t go over well, not at all.

He makes me so damn mad at times I could spit bullets but I have to remember he is only seventeen and has an illness as well. Sometimes, we do not look at our children in the way we should and we do not treat them as we should and that brings out a side of their personalities that is undesirable at best. I try to be the best mom I can be but I have not quite got a grasp on the perfect parent and doubt I ever will.

Private One

I am extremely private and I really hate when people try to get into my business or try to find out what I am doing. I am selling my home and I do not have a for sale sign in my front yard because it’s nobody’s business that I am selling. I do not talk to my neighbors and when I do it is a simple hello at the most because I stay to myself and have no interest in their lives and they shouldn’t care about mine.

I would never want to be famous because nothing is private and everything they do is always shown to the world through the rag mags or television. Perfect example is Robin Thicke and his estranged wife Paula, he screwed up and is trying desperately trying to get her back while the entire world watches and criticizes his actions. I have no desire to have my picture plastered all over the world and I have no desire to have anyone know anything about my personal relationships.

Fame has a hell of a price tag attached to it and I am sure so many famous people would love to have their privacy but cannot because of their fame. Try to date someone famous and see how quickly you are judged and crap is dug up about you, may it be true or false. I am a simple woman who wants nothing more than a quiet, simple life and to share it with someone who is as private as I am.
