Just got back to the hotel after my daughters first nationals. This whole year has been one long bar struggle, with major fear issues that at one point were to severe that her coach almost made her an event specialist on the other 3 events. And of course we find out at the meet today that the dreaded bars were last (UGH!). She hit the other 3 events with 9s and just lost it on bars. She pretended she didn't care at the meet but absolutely lost it in the ride back to the hotel crying and yelling that she's quitting and can never compete again because of how embarrassing her bars were. I am so proud of her for making it this far and wish she would realize how well she did on everything else. She thinks her coach hates her and won't want to work with her anymore... I feel so bad=[. Sorry for the long post, just needed to vent.
