MY EATING PLAN:
I keep lots of frozen protein such as seafood (calamari, shrimp, & scallops), turkey meatballs, and chicken. I also try to keep frozen vegetables=asparagus, broccoli, and spinach. Carbs=Frozen precooked brown & basmati rice, sprouted bread from Trader Joes, pasta, whole wheat wraps. A variety of sauces- marinara, soy sauce, taco sauce, mole sauce, curry etc. So, I can mix and match but I try to take 1 protein, 1 carb, 1 vegetable, and 1 sauce because if you don't have flavor and variety life gets really boring!

Paula I agree with everything you have said, I cannot get her the help she needs, due to "patient confidentiality" rules the counseling she has had (minimal) I can't be told about what goes on. The refuse to admit her, the refuse to medicate her and they refuse to talk to me. I have cried, I have yelled, I have logically and calmly listed my concerns and I get combinations of "You just need to let her make her choices" "Yes it is hard for the family but she knows it was wrong so we do not think she is a risk" etc etc and the only two people that have spoken to me have basically told me I have two choices let her keep manipulating everyone out of fear or cut that dead and hope she realizes its not the way to go ... ever so helpful right.

All I know for certain is I am suffering more than she appears to be, have no support in this country and quite frankly don't know what else I can do.

And after stressing and having anxiety attacks the last two days her father never foolowed through on calling and she has barely been home in 6 days - and four of those I couldn't contact her or even find out where she was

it is a very poopy situation
thanks for your support xx

Are you back on track? I see your status is current. I just started tracking again and hoping to find some supportive groups like we used to have with Fab before 40 and Power of Ten. I don't see CityGirl anywhere anymore. :( I used to be CATCANCOOK. I changed my username a few months ago, but haven't gotten serious about SP again until now. I'm done. I'm NOT buying new clothes! Hope to hear from you and get some encouragement and accountability!
