My difficult daughter is now 27. We started having problems with her at about age 12. Would not cooperate in school, failed 7th grade. Got her to a psychologist. Eventually I was told that she has borderline personality disorder. Paid good money to send her to a specialized school...they tried but she was difficult there. Went back to public school eventually sent to alternative school. Was not successful even then but fell in with other challenging kids and began to smoke marijuana. Would take off for days at a time with older and shady men. Called the police each time. Clearly I did not know how to handle this child and the psychologists did not help much. Fast forward, she got her GED and started attending community college at age 19. What hope I had! However, she met another loser guy who actually indulged her with as much marijuana as she wanted. So she stopped going to school and smoked constantly. Then she decided she wanted more money than this dude could give her so she discovered the world of prostitution. She advertised on Backpage and probably picked up on the street, I don't know. Made and spent a lot of money. She loves to shop. Ended up with 3 stays in the psychiatric ER for bipolar disorder, paranoia, marijuana and alcoholism. Took her home each time, desperately hoping that a corner has been turned this time. She immediately refused to take her medications and only saw the psychiatric for a short time. There is nothing wrong with her as far as she is concerned. Will not work, have charges against her for theft in stores and assault on her brother, will not further her education. Actually, she has told me that I am supposed to take care of her for the rest of MY life. At this point, I am selling my house and moving to another State...I can't participate anymore. She now has no money but wants to move to a hotel to restart her prostitution business. Am I enabling her by giving her 2 weeks hotel charges as she has begged of me ? I am having troubling leaving her penniless. She absolutely refuses to obtain relevant services from the State such as job recovery, housing, etc. I am throwing in the towel preparing to hear the worst news. Thanks so much for reading this. Some much has been distressing.
