Standing Up for Herself

Lyn stood up for herself yesterday.  It doesn't happen often and so it is notable when it does.

One of the other clients at day hab has been making unkind comments to her.  She's been upset by the other client and come home agitated as a result each day this week.  Mom consoled her each time and urged her to speak with the staff when it happened.  Yesterday she did.

The other client made some ugly remarks about her appearance.  She burst into tears and went to the staff.  They calmed her down and sent the other client home as a result.  While one of the staff took her out for a little one-on-one time, another member contacted Mom to let her know of the incident.

Last night, Lyn came home happy.
