thanks again all. i truly know this was the right place to put my feelings and vent. feels good and feels safe.
hannah met her psychiatrist this past Wednesday…that went well…they’ve upped her meds and added abilify to “enhance” the med she is on…so it’s kind of wiping her out but when I’m able to see her after school she is in good spirits and active in her homework and college applications (she has to decide by may 1)
we won’t let her go to college IF we all feel she is not stable enough…she has no business uprooting her life and leaving her support system of friends and family. however, I also feel there’s nothing more important than freedom and autonomy and I really want her to leave the nest and go explore. she’s applied to 20 colleges, she’s been accepted to 13 and waitlisted on 7.
main one is st olaf in minn and then two in mass
I’m hoping for st olaf…she’s waitlisted for macalaster …i’d love her to get into that one.
she wants to study art …she loves to draw, loves to work w/ clay and painting and water colors.
