the fallout has now happened.
WE had a lovely Xmas day. Kids all happy with their presents and very little squabbling. Meal was lovely. Followed on the Saturday by a day out shopping (cannot have Xmas money in pocket for too long!!) at a retail outlet with cutprice Superdry as the main attraction!! All went well (we thought). All three kids bought something - the girls quite a lot.
But Saturday night AD1 (who is in hospital) was hyper and behaving badly and on Sunday it deteriorated. Yesterday she ran off, abusing members of the public. She was with another patient who behaved worse than AD1 (I think she actually assaulted someone). She ended up in seclusion for a few hours. Still "brittle" and "unsettled" last night.
Apparently (it has gradually come out) she and AD2 had an argument where AD2 was being derogatory about DH and I and AD1 didn't like it, stuck up for us and told AD2 she was in care cos of her own behaviour and it wasn't our fault. Then AD2 told AD1 that we wouldn't be in the situation we are in had she not tried to jump off a bridge in Dec 2012!! So, no wonder AD1 got upset! We were expecting some fall out after Xmas - once she didn't have a goal to aim for, but did not expect this!
AD2 meanwhile has reduced our contact with her to fortnightly and told AD1 that she doesn't want to come home (ever). LAst night she posted on FB that she had done something stupid and when I rang to find out if she was OK, she was verbally aggressive on the phone to me saying it wasn't any of my business - why did I care as I had put her into care etc etc. Found out later that she probably used an aerosol can and she punched a wall.
Back to earth with a big bump!!
