After reading another post about pregnancy I decided to do another post about my daughter. I hope that by sharing the information someone else can benefit in the long run. I relate to so many here when my daughter was younger - at this point of my life I choose no contact and for good reason. So yesterday I had my therapy session and the post about someone maybe being a grandma reminded me of some of my daughters behavior so I decided to take it up with him. Here is what we talked about: When Difficult Child was younger (she has now had a hysterectomy) she would PLAN AND get pregnant with him (whoever him was) Then she would go and have an abortion and tell the person that she "lost" the baby i.e. a "sympathetic" miscarriage. How do I know that's true? Because she involved me in it on one occasion (had me take her to the clinic and then tell the father of the baby) When I called to tell him he was so heartbroken.........and so he told me how they worked "so hard" to have the baby. Such a different story than what she told me. The sole reason I decided to go with her is that she already had (at the time) a 13 year old son and was the worst mother so I knew it was a really bad idea for her to have another child, for the child's sake. (I know it happened other times because after this happened I was able to piece it together) I am one of these people that are Pro-Choice AND anti-abortion. Meaning for me, I am past the age where I should be getting politically involved in what a woman does with her body. The thing is my own daughter tried to drag me through the grief of aborting my own grandchild (she had no idea how I felt about her as a mother, but she tried to manipulate me and my feelings)! And for God's sake can you imagine what she was doing to the men in these situations? My daughter went on the marry the "father" of that last abortion and to this day he has no idea of the truth. (Sadly that would have been his only child) They have been married five years and I really like him, he is a great guy. She truly doesn't deserve him. The reason she married him was because he had been hanging around in the background of her life and when she blew up our company financially, had blown through every nickle that came her way; the husband, being an only child, his father died, left him everything including an insurance policy. So Difficult Child hopped right on him with all her charm and manipulation and married him so she could keep her house out of foreclosure. After relating the story to my therapist you could just tell by his face that he was outraged. He told me that not only is she a huge sociopath but hugely Narcissistic as well and If I know what is good for me I will stay the far away from her. Double lock the doors and bring down the shades! So I bring you this story to day to share with you what some of you here (the parents of the Adult younger ones mostly) could be dealing with in the future. Maybe as I share what it is like, my experiences with my daughter, I can save some of you the pain and heartache I have been through. Also for those that are reading this for the first time, my therapist asked me a very important question a few months ago about daughter being a sociopath - who does her behavior, in your family, remind you of? That important question allowed me to finally let go of all the self blame, the guilt tripping I was doing to myself because now I understood the DNA connection. My daughter, my lovely darling little baby girl, is no more. She is beautiful, she is brilliant and intelligent, she is charming and sophisticated; she is also a liar and a manipulator of the highest order, she truly is a sociopath in all it's vile ways.
