James and I went today...again the counselor said in 40 yrs he had never encountered anyone in as bad of shape as she was. She even got up and leaned over the desk...he finally left the room and she kept talking like she does around me. She needs tests but thats the progress not on her part. She's entrenched...the only way she'll improve is if I can do things to make her better and I've run out of the drive to do it...

He called her delusional. I've never talked to anyone that could say the opposite of the truth or reality so much and not be lying because they believed what they were saying.

Come back and learn more...going back in a only going to go 3 or 4 times...he and I were on the same page on this point...I said Chrissy was like a bottomless well that you were using a glass to pour water into...when it came to be nice and encouraging...she needs her way...ALL the feel you have to say and do everything perfect to keep her from melting down and I grew tired of it...I did not mind for a long time...

Now I am a long ways from perfect...I do not do well these patience is gone and like anyone I have my bad days, bad moments even if Chrissy were perfect...

One minute you feel if you can just do and say the right thing she'll be ok then 2 sentences into a conversation where everything is good and fine the switch flips and within 2 more sentences she had become angry, bitter and ready to tear you apart...okay I admit it...that is me on the golf course at times...

Both James and I know she means well...and if anyone else talked to James or about James like she does she would attack them...she would defend her baby cub with her life. Her goals for him are laudable. It's just the reality of she will not let up in her 'coaching' and 'encouragement' she is intense to put it mildly...nonstop which is the real killer...

If she applied this wasted emotion and energy into something useful she would be #1 in the world in whatever she applied herself to...oh wait she is a bad in #1 worst patient in 40yrs...haha.
