Hey guys. I'm having a hard day today. My daughter, who is 18, is living with my parents. My parents are trying to be better with her and enabling her less, but she pretty much comes and goes as she pleases, is on the phone and computer all day, and has been stealing money from my mom's purse. She's on probation, but her PO is about as useful as wet matches on a camping trip. Maybe worse, because he's an enabler. At any rate, I haven't had much of a relationship with her as of late. Can't talk about anything unless it is me, sitting on the phone listening to her lies and never EVER challenging her on anything. This past weekend she had a bad trip of "e" so we had to pick her up and bring her to my parent's house. She had a moment of clarity and babbled on for quite some time about her use, and how it has had a negative effect on her life. Contemplated if she was an addict, stuff like that. And then the next day - back to SOS. Just got off the phone with her today. One of those conversations where I call her on her lies and challenge her on her use. And basically, ended up feeling like doo-doo. I don't know if I feel worse when I sit there and listen to her babble and don't challenge her, or when we get into it and end on a bad note. Both stink. And today I'm very much feeling like there's no hope. Like she's off paper and she'll split. She pretty much doesn't care about us, her family - and certainly isn't going to call her "occasional weed use" a problem. She thinks she's a normal 18-year-old kid, and we're jerks who are jealous of her and her ability "do what she wants to do." I could use a hug, even if it's from a message board.
