My daughter is 19 and 6 months pregnant and i just had to ask her to leave the house, and since she left it's almost been like how an abusive husband's behavior esclates after he recieves a protection order. I am living with my father who is dying of lung cancer, and even that does not stop her wrath of entitlement. i feel alot of pain about not being able to fix her. I just wrote her a letter explaining how "Iíve allowed myself to be consumed by your behavior and your wellbeing at the expense of my own wellbeing. Not only has my inability to effectively help you over the years affected my self-worth as a mother, it has equally negatively affected your self-worth to become a mature, respectful, responsible young woman." For the first time, I am not being passive and taking a stand by not allowing her to terrorize us with her Addict behavior. I don't know if she's using now - but she is definitely addicted to her heroin-addict boyfriend - crazymaking!!! I need help STAYING STRONG. Funny thing is, I am an adolescent addictions counselor... and I cant even help my own kid! I believe the right thing to do is always the hardest, and I've been so beat down by her in the past, I always looked for the easiest way to handle her, and obviously that didnt work out too well!
