“I have to fake it with them”
That’s what I overheard my daughter saying to her sister in tears. I have no idea what the context was… What she was upset about, or who the “Them” she feels she has to fake it with. That is all I overheard of the conversation.
Makes me wonder… has she been faking with us about things being fine? Up to now, there has been no signs of a downturn. Since she started treatment, she has seemed to happy and confident… something she hasn’t been in a long time…
And this happening 5 hours after the best news she has received… being accepted into art school… She even told her grandmother that things are going great.
Can a good thing be too much for our loved ones??? Too overwhelming? I don’t understand how things changed around so fast… from excitement to tears.
Should I be concerned? Obviously I should be alert if this happens again… or other signs. Is this just an isolated thing.
When I asked her about it, she replied, “You don’t need be concerned, Dad.” When my wife asked her… “it’s nothing I can’t handle.”
Thirty minutes later, she comes down and says that she was just being overdramatic about some situation.
I have no idea what the situation was that she “overdramatic” about.
It is possible that this conversation happened before she took her medication… and once she took her medication, she was fine.
