Thanks so much for your reply, RSK. I spent a long time talking with my T about her today, and so much of my anger and frustration has been directed at trying to find the reasoning behind my step daughter's random actions. I kept feeling like I was getting glimpses in through a closed window, whereas I wanted the whole house tour...

And my T helped me see that the glimpses are probably all there are - that there likely isn't any reasoning going on behind her actions. I'm making myself a little bit crazy trying to find what's behind all this, when maybe there isn't anyone hiding behind the curtain at all.

I feel better than I did a week ago, a bit more detached. I'm hoping that I'll continue to be able to let go of the outcome of this woman's choices, even as she continues to make them.

Thanks again
CS
