The story today is just unreal. It started weeks ago. difficult child agreed to allow "a friend" to come from another state to stay at her place...something about a court hearing. She was to stay for a few days with- her child. difficult child hadn't seen her for many months. Instead she came with- two children (a new one had been born in the mean time) and her brother. difficult child lives in a tiny efficiency. The court hearing was delayed three weeks. Now it's five people in a tiny little place. difficult child says she tried to have her go back home or to another friend's house and the young woman wouldn't leave. difficult child gets upset. I take difficult child Friday to buy a Father's Day gift and she asks for my help. Today, husband goes to the apartment and tries to help...pushing the girl to call a relative to get money to fly back home. The girl goes into a rage...puts her children at a neighbors house and threatens to have difficult child beaten up. difficult child panics and runs outside and takes a lighter and looks as if she is going to set her pants on fire. Someone calls the cops. The cops talk to the girl and daughter...and take daughter to the hospital who is terrifified that the girl is going to have her killed. The girl says it is daughter's fault for making her pay money to get to her apartment and yet wont keep her there for three weeks. difficult child says that she only agreed for a few days...two people. GET THIS...cops say that the girl has "squatter's rights" and haul difficult child away to the hospital. THE GIRL...pretty much a stranger, her brother and two little kids are now living in our daughter's apartment, courtesy of our money. Meanwhile, difficult child is at the hospital...intake. I talked to the Dr. He said is is not certain, but might let her go home in a few hours. I have a weding to go to in a few hours. Our current plan is for me to go and husband is to meet me at the reception. I can't stop crying and don't really know what to do. I have a paper due next week and a final exam in two weeks. husband says that one of us might have to go to the courthouse next week and file eviction papers. I don't even know this girl's name. husband talked to the a friend of the girl in the apartment who allegedly feels bad and has called a relative who has agreed to send a plane ticket. This is what husband asked her to do in the first place. She claims she will be out by Friday. She does not have a key and we don't know how the place might be secure in the mean time. We are thinking of going back to the place and taking difficult children stereo and computer,...the only valuables she really has. Any ideas? I can't stop crying...I haven't eaten...I am SICK.
