I've just discovered this forum and feel intensely better just knowing there are people out there I can talk to who understand the pain I'm going through. so... I've always had trouble with the idea of kicking my 22,24, now 26 yo daughter out of the house because it will cause me so much more worry and pain - where is she staying, what if she doesn't have a place to stay - will she turn to prostitution to get by? what if someone hurts her, abducts her, etc. it's such a dangerous world. she doesn't have friends or other family to turn to, it's just us. Guess I've got to go figure out all the abbreviations to identify her but, she is definitely adhd (diagnosed professionally at age 11). She broke up with her boyfriend - they were living together for 4 years, and she had to move back home when she couldn't keep up with her finances. Now, the overdue bills she's piled up just keep coming in, including some from the IRS. She has decided to try to join the army - went to see a recruiter who told her she had to be off her adhd medications for 6 months before she could even apply. She has 4 months to go and I don't know if she'll make it - or if they will even take her with history of adhd, horrible credit, etc. But, she is determined that she is going to make it. We just found out that she stole our bank card and withdrew and spent $800 in 10 days - not on drugs, on going out to party at clubs. We had told her (before we found this out) we were going to help her with all the overdue bills to get her back to ground zero and now this. I am just sick to my stomach and don't know where to turn, what to do. Of course, no health insurance, no job (other than part time), and, apparently many of you are in the same boat.
