I don't know how to live with this. It is tearing me up inside. My stomach constantly aches and I walk around with such an uneasy feeling all day. Today I stayed in bed for most of the day and then when I wasn't in bed I was sitting in the dark. I have been crying on and off all day. I feel horrible all of the time. I am worried and very sad. I know I did the right thing, I just didn't think it would be this hard to live with. She got into a fight with a 37 year old woman and knocked her out. For that she got 30 days in the box!!! Because she isn't on her medications and physically cannot control her impulses, she has been running off at the mouth. So one of the COs has taken $25.00 of the $30.00 I brought her for food. She is now left with only $5.00!!! She is just going to keep getting into fights and getting into more trouble because she is completely manic right now. I have left messages for the DA to call me to discuss the plan to have her put into crisis care. It is all set up for her and the bed is waiting. I just need to somehow convey this to the DA. Is it unheard of for a DA to actually call a parent of an inmate? If she isn't let out on Thursday when we go back to court, I want to drop the charges so she can go into crisis care and be evaluated and put back on her medications. What do you think? Is that a bad idea? I mean she will be going right from jail into the crisis unit, then from there she will be placed into an Residential Treatment Center (RTC). I think that scenario will be better for her than leaving her in jail where she is only going to keep regressing. I don't know what to do. I don't even know if we are able to drop the charges. She stole our debit card, so does that mean we do have the option of dropping the charges? I am new to all this legal stuff. I am used to dealing with the Family Courts, it is totally different from Criminal Court thats for sure!!! Family Court is all about helping these kids, the Criminal Courts couldn't care less about them!!! I am so second guessing my decision to press charges. Did I do the right thing for my daughter? I mean she is a total mess. I would feel a lot better if she went into jail while on her medications. She would be so much more in control of herself. I don't know. I feel like I am just as much of a mess right now. I really am having a hard time dealing with this. I am also so sick of dealing with all of this craziness. When the heck does this get any better? It's like we go from bad to worse, to worse, to worse and to worse!!! It just doesn't seem to get any easier. Help!!!! What should I do? Thanks.
