Cute Lil Girl
I’m not allowed to post until I read other blogs first (my rule, not WordPress) and I haven’t had much time to read, sooo…missed about a week here. Breaking my rule for a quickie, though:
Took the girl for initial Neuropsych Evaluation office visit (similar to a psych/IQ test they give at school to determine the need for an IEP–Individualized Education Plan, but more in-depth). The good doctor is trying to retire. I’m sure, to his…experienced…eye, I seem very young. It probably didn’t help that I mentioned my undergrad in counseling and the fact that I did not pursue further education in the field because I realized I wasn’t cut out for it.
“Not cut out for it”…not because I couldn’t hack the academics, but because of my propensity for taking others’ troubles as my own and becoming discouraged when I couldn’t fix their problems for them. Since the visit wasn’t about me, I didn’t explain this, but maybe should have.
After we finished the session with the girl, I asked if he could recommend any books or articles. He said, “Well, the things I read are mostly technical papers. They’d probably be too much for you.”
Right. Because I’m just a cute little girl.
