I am getting the impression my 16 year old has a complex. She recently saw the stack of unpaid medical bills from the past couple years and was dismayed because she was the primary recipient.
2014: between myself and three daughters we had 2 broken wrists, two surgeries and 2 concussions. The entire summer, not a week went by without some hospital visit or procedure. She alone has had over 100 x-rays plus CT scans and MRIs.
She still feels broken. Her classmates think its fun to pick on her. At one time she thought it was hilarious and could beat them to the punchline. Now, its old, hurtful and causing some depression.
Then I go and make a comment about braces and how expensive dental work will be.. dumb. She looks across to me and genuinely inquires, “Do you regret having kids?” Ugh, knife to heart! Of course, I say, “No.”
