I don't know about you, but for me, I was finding that for 2 weeks a month I had wide, scary eyes and was frightening the hell out of everyone around me. Fluoxetine (Prozac) cured it. I take it two weeks out of the month, and I'm perfectly normal - well, ok, as normal as I can be. Good luck.

I think there is something bitter in the water lately. I've been in the foulest moods. As for J Bear I had previously thought so and I have to agree it shouldn't have been a problem before now outing herself. You are the most mellow mother in that arena I know. (Hugs)Indigo

there are days I feel like punching something....anything....

Bwahahahaha! God has SUCH a perverse sense of humor with regards to forcing teenagers upon us. ;-)

My kids are fairly conformist in the way they dress, but my son is an uber slob and rarely wears (or has) clean clothes, so he tends to attend decent affairs in filthy clothing. Which is offensive beyond belief to me, but he has the same argument as your daughter. HE likes it, so why does it matter? Teens!

I'm glad the elephant is out of the room, but oy! The drama isn't over yet, is it?

Hugs to you.

The hardest lesson for the young to learn is that "It ain't all about you". Although, they're convinced it IS and are willing to offend you, me and Mormon Tabernacle Choir to prove it. Someday, she will learn the packaging doesn't matter, except in its ability to demonstrate care and concern for the cares and concerns of others. It's what's inside that really counts.

I don't envy you, but I love and respect you for the amazing mother you are. Lou has a way with words, doesn't he?


Well, I for one think you're doing a lovely job at translating the nasty thoughts and feelings into some good stories.

And the bottom line is you're an amazing mom with a bunch of young adults and you're doing it with a ton of love, patience, openness and humor. It just oozes out of you :)

You're a real gem - I hope you know that <3

All we can do is love them, and pray that they turn out okay. She really should start growing up though, I mean is it that hard to look "normal" for four days, and then go back to "whatever" and crying for attention later.

I do not envy you.

Send me an e-mail and I will send you a photo that ruined my Christmas... :( I SOOOO feel your pain!

With love,
