Frustrated with my 13 year old daughter

I have three kids, but the one that frustrates me the most is my 13 yr old middle child. My daughter can be the most loving, helpful girl on the planet. Blink, and she's this raging, mouthy, bratty teenager that I have no clue who she is. Don't get me wrong, I don't tolerate it. She gets grounded, she gets priviledges taken away, she loses fun time. I always warn her, you are going to get ..... whenever she starts and yet, on and on she goes. My best friend will sit there and be amazed that my helpful, wonderful daughter is now a raving lunatic. I keep telling myself it's hormones and she's growing up and testing, anything to keep myself sane. Heck, I even got her counselling to see if talking with someone other than me would help. She told me, mom, if there's something I want to talk about I'll tell you, NOT a stranger and boom that was it. For the record, the councellor said, normal teenager. REALLY??!?! I have a 15 yr old son that is NOTHING like this. I'm sure we will both survive, but I really needed to see if I'm the only one with the Jekyll and Hyde teenage daughter, and vent a little. :)
