Alright, just a little over a week ago I joined the forum and was feeling really sad and worried and just sick about my 18 yo Difficult Child and the fact that we put her out for all the typical things we are all dealing with. Now...I'm angry. I got a tremendous amount of support from all of you and read the book 'Boundaries' and in a very short time felt very confident about our decision to kick her out. Great right? I think so but now I'm p [email protected]#ed off at my Difficult Child. Haven't heard from her in several days which I was fine with, I finally had some peace from the nagging and yelling, etc, etc. I am headed out of town to my absolute favorite place in the world, our property that we purchased to retire on for some much needed rest and she texts me wanting $50 for food and gas (in her boyfriends car). I didn't respond. She text me 4 times in a row telling me to hurry up and wire some money. I responded and simply said no. She text me several more times making crappy comments about me not helping her, etc. Last week she said she had gotten a fast food job and was getting an apartment with her boyfriend. Well, both of those are lies! I still have a GPS locating app for her phone that we used when she was in high school and always skipping school and running away. Well I tracked her location a couple of times this week and she has been bouncing from house to house all over the place, I mean like 10-15 different places a day. None of those were fast food places and at night she was at her boyfriend dad's house. All lies!!!!!! So she is texting me today griping because she needs food money and is still just lying through her teeth! My gut says she wants money for meth or weed or whatever, I've been through this so many times before. I am far better equipped to handle it the right way now and I'm doing it but I am so frustrated and angry that she continues to lie and beg me for money! I just want her to stop contacting me at all, at least for a while. I'm feeling DONE and like I need a break from her completely. Her whole life it has been an absolute struggle to raise her. She fought everything tooth and nail her entire life and it seems like she did everything the hard way no matter the consequences and I'm just worn out! I want to scream in the phone that I'm done, leave me alone! I know this might sound horrible for a mother to say but that's honestly what I feel. I want to enjoy my trip so I have blocked her number...setting boundaries right? Is this anger a natural emotion in these situations?
