It was all a lie

10-inconvenienceDavid wants desperately to be trusted.  He wants us to believe him.

On Friday, he came home from school all excited because he was voted onto the student council at his school.

Today, he informs us that it was all a lie.  Nothing was true.

So i have confirmation emails going out to his school.

I want to believe him, but if he will lie about something as innocuous as student council, what else will he lie about?

Since the therapist left, he has been slowly degrading in his mental state.  Behaviors are increasing.  Not sure what that is about.  The therapist did take him for a walk, and according to him, was asking if he had any concerns about living at home.

I want to believe what he says, but it is difficult.

Soon, he will be in bed, asleep and we can start a new day tomorrow.

Wish him luck.

When confronted about lies, he says “you never believe me…” This gradually changes to “Let me tell you the… Continue Reading
