I am so irate over the laws in my county. My difficult child will be 18 in less than 6 months. She reminds me everyday that she will stop all medications and treatment. I believe her. It makes me crazy that I don't have the right to kick her out of my house or force her to take her medications or participate in treatment. Then why am I still legally responsible for her. That just makes no sense whatsoever!!! If she is "adult" enough to make choices regarding her well being than she should be "adult" enough to live on her own. In the eyes of the "system" she isn't an adult until 21, then shouldn't I be able to "parent" her until then??? I am just supposed to allow her to decompose and run a muck in my household and make everyone else who lives here nuts. That is just not fair. Nor is it in my difficult child's best interest. What am I supposed to do? I have no recourse once she turns 18. I am floored by this logic. Has anyone else dealt with this? What did you do? I am a nervous wreck!! She keeps telling me she will be moving out, yeah right, not going to happen. Where the h*ll does she think she is going? She will be here with us, driving us crazy until she is 21. By then if she still refuses to do her part, I WILL kick her out!!! Any advice????
