This will be a little lengthy, but here goes. I posted almost two months ago regarding my daughter and received some very encouraging responses. We had just found out that she was pregnant and I wanted to update you on her situation. I dont get to post very often since I dont have a computer at home but I visit very regularly. Almost 2 weeks after finding out that she was pregnant she miscarried. She was very sad and I was sad as well. I know she had been excited about it even though a baby was the last thing she needed. I mentioned in my post that she was having a lot of legal issues and was currently on probation because of a lot of bad choices, such as not showing up for court for minor offenses. She has always chosen to just ignore responsibility in hopes that it would go away. The legal issues have been going on for over a year. After being caught with weed, a few other minor offenses that were in violation of her probation and spending a few more days in jail, her probation officer decided (due to her mental health history) to turn her case over to our county mental health court instead of violating her. This all happened right before she found out she was pregnant. The purpose of turning her over to the mental health court system was to help her get an extension on taking care of the charges against her and to help her qualify for certain services. After the miscarriage she missed another court appearance and landed in jail again (just an absolute revolving door for her!) And no, she does not like jail! She just doesnt want to accept responsibility. Her new probation officer (who I believe has been a God send for her and for me) decided to place her in a group home situation (court ordered) where she was going to have to find a job, attend meetings and enter counseling. It was either that or six months in jail. (This is where Im really beginning to feel good because it was taken out of my hands.) I had already decided she was going to have to leave my house at the end of October but now it wasnt even my choice. To wind things up here, no she wasnt really compliant with the house rules of the group home. She failed 3 drug tests and each time her levels went up! Dont know where she got it but that doesnt matter. Because of this she is now back in jail. Here comes the interesting part. Her PO called me on Monday afternoon after the results were in from the drug test and she told me you know, I dont think Gloria fits the Bipolar diagnosis. All I see from her is Borderline. I couldnt believe what I was hearing because this is what I have been saying for 2 years and no one has listened! She fits every single one of the criteria! Anyone I mentioned this to just said dont be so quick to diagnose this. Okay, who am I to say anything? Im just Mom and what do I know. Ive only lived with her for 10 years. The great news is that she will spend 10 days in jail and then she will be going to an inpatient facility here in the area for 90 days and will be receiving DPT therapy (some intense behavioral therapy). She has never had anything like this before at all. No counselor has even really tried to work with her on her past issues, although I will say that daughter is extremely frustrating to work with. But, she had an abusive past and she will never change if she doesnt deal with it. Im just excited that finally someone is on the same page as me and is willing to make an attempt at this therapy for her. The PO did tell me that if this doesnt work for her, nothing else really will. Just praying that it will be the answer and that she can begin the healing process. I hope I can begin to heal as well. It has been a very long and hard 10 years.
