I have had troubles from my daughter since she was 3 1/2. I remember the age so clearly...it is like someone switched her. I have basicly been in hell for the past 15 1/2 years. She has been to so many doctors i have lost count and she has been in so many diffenent homes to "help" her. I have been told to hold her every day and tell her how much she is loved to being told "sorry there is nothing we can do for her". She was kicked out of school in the 4th grade after they evacuated part of the school and trapped her in a class room. (please excuse any misspelling) I have suffered from depression and have gained weight over the years. When she turned 18 she felt she was an adult and could come and go as she wished, stealing my car or even my parents' car. That is when I figured out that she had to leave my house or I would die...it was slowly killing me to live like this for all the years. The abuse and violence. Nothing ever got through. When she came home one night trying to pick the front lock on my house. I called the police and asked them to remove her from my property...It was the hardest thing I have ever done. She did have places to go...she had her father. I have seen her but she is still not allowed on my property. People who have seen what I have been through have often said that I need to write a book...just to let others know they are not alone. I write this statement all I can do is cry...she and i have missed out on so much that can not be taken back or changed. So I am going to write that book. I am going to let people know they are not alone. If any one out there wants to add their story please write me and let me know. I pray and ask for blessing for everyone going through what I have gone through...God Bless, Stone.
