Aahhh, I'm taking a deep breath this afternoon after getting my errands run and dealing with yet another rear of my Difficult Child'S precious dysfunctional head lol. Last night she text (from yet another number) and said 'Please save me Mom. David is mean and he won't let me leave.' Proudly I can say my first thought and reaction wasn't to jump up and go nor was it to in anyway get myself upset. Rather I told th what the message said and we both just stared at each other. I thought for a moment and responded I'm sorry you feel that way. minutes later I received a message from David ( the guy that took her in) and he said exactly what my gut was telling me. He said he was providing all of her needs but would not provide her wants and her want is dope. He said that's exactly why she thinks he is mean. I told him I agreed with him and he said in his last message that she is fine. I didn't hear from her again until today at around noon. She text from yet another number to tell me that I didn't need to worry about coming to get her. I didn't respond but I blocked that number too after telling her not to contact me for money or a place to stay until she decides to help herself. I'm getting better at this but if certainly doesn't mean it's any easier. I feel a tinge of guilt when I block all those numbers and actually tell her not to contact me but I've got to have some distance or I'm going to scream. I think I deserve to have just a few months where I don't have to jump everytime I hear a text message come in or screen every phone call. If I can get some peace for a while, just a little while, I think I will be ready again to deal with her. She is a full fledged meth addict and using all the classic methods of manipulation, mainly emotional ones with me because she knows how hurt I am and has me shed many a tear over the past several years. She is hitting me where it hurts and I don't like her for that but I know it's her addiction talking too. I'm off for a girls night with my sister to enjoy some tex-mex and margaritas! Yay! Hugs to everyone!
