I was wondering about something and I hope I can make it sound sensibel to teh rest of you, here goes, We maoved this town 2 1/2 yrs. ago. My daughter was in 4th grade. she has always struggled in school and so we knew she would have a hard time adjusting we did what we could to help her, she has really struggled here trying to fit in and make friends. she has never been invitedto anyone's house or done anything like that. she is now in 6th grade and her struggles at school are getting harder. she has really struggled in PE, any way the other day I was talking to the teacher and she was telling me that my daughter brings her own problems on, that none of the kids want to partner up with ehr or even be around her,because she get's mad and says things, I knowthis, but I also toldthe teacher that my daughter is not perfect but those other kids are not either and told her without mentioning names some of the thigs that my daughter had done to her, she says well I was not aware of that. anyway after I got offthe phone with erh I got to thinking, at her old school she had some struggles and problmes wiith focusing but she she had fiends she was invited to places and did things, she was not popular which is fine but she had friends, I know has she get's olderthat her struggles will be harder andshe will need a lot of support, but I am wondering if part of the anger problem we are seeing is the fact that she has tried so hard to fit in here and make a friend only to be pushed aside that she is just fed up and is just mean because, I know she has social issues and and has a hard time being aound a lot of kids st the same time, and she struggles with starting a conversation or always being able to stay in one for long, but I have never had the phone calls from the school like I have hadthis year. about her behavior and manners, nothing bad just that she had a minor upset and they know we are monitoring this for the docter, does this make sense?she will come home and say nice things about the kids and stuff but the teachers all say she strugles to fit in and be in a gorup of girls whio ignore her, breaks my heart, the teachers except the one have all worked on helping he rwith the social issues and making sure she is included but she just has no one to hang with, she plays with a 2nd grader who lives next door, even though we have 5 other 6th graders who live on our block, sorry this was so long,

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
We are surely all familiar with that lie that Trich tells us, "just one hair" "just pull one", "just one more". It's a lie that's hard to disbelieve in the moment, and it's only after we've indulged in the impulse that we realise we fell for it again. I created a similar thread over on Trich World a couple of years ago (the Trich social networking site) and it's still popular! So I thought I'd...
