It’s a miracle! By the grace and glory of higher powers, by the wonders and marvels of modern science, our bike-wrecking child who hobbled feebly into an emergency room yesterday morning, blind and almost paralyzed, perched at death’s door, is back in school today, just fine.
It couldn’t have been that she was swayed into exaggerating and fabricating symptoms to feed the histrionics of a mentally ill parent. It couldn’t have been that, in fact, the smashed bones and concussion and lack of vision truly never existed. It couldn’t have been that this child was used and manipulated like a game pawn. It couldn’t possibly have all been a ridiculous and transparent hair-brained scheme.
Why, if that were the case, then that would mean that a parent deliberately ordered a child to lie in order to make up shit to try to use against the other parent…and we all know only a raging asshole would do that.
