Why is it that someone needs my help and I feel like there is nothing I can do for her?
A lady in my small town needs me to watch her foster child. That should be easy enough. Right? Nice try, but I have two small children at home all day long and one of them is SO much work! She constantly freaks out, whenever she is expected to follow any rules. She is more work than I have ever had any of my kids be! She defies all rules. She ignores my voice. She screams and yells and flops and flips and it drives me nuts. I am serious. I have not mentioned it before, because she rarely does any of this around anyone but me, or my family anyway. Lately, it seems to be getting worse. She is freaking out when I am on the phone. She is banging her head against the wall and kicking and hitting things. I am at my wits end! I really am. Especially now, when I feel like my friend needs me the most. I know that she is missing work, day after day, because she can not come up with a sitter. I also know that I can't handle any more, so why do I feel so bad? I am beside myself.
Sorry to dump this here, but I needed to get it off my chest!
