Can't go through this pain again?!?
by Mary Kay
I live in a town to the west of Austin, Texas called Spicewood. I also live part time in Sedona, Arizona. I'm in Sedona now so is there any place in Sedona where I can go and talk about my daughter. I don't know if it's drinking or drugs.
We have gone through years of this and been in and out of a few rehabs, but all they do is introduce themselves (my daughter) to other druggies and alcoholics so they can buy from them when they get out of rehab. My daughter is now 49 years old.
I'm 69 in a few days. I thought things were fine, but they aren't I found out when I got to Sedona. She lives in Flagstaff. She used to attend AA there, but she's falling off the wagon bad. I feel too old to go through all this again.
Her kids left her years ago to stay with their other grandmother in Colorado. One is 20 and the other 17. The 20 year old has moved back in with his parents. He's working as an EMT and is going to school to become a paramedic.
I need help. Please tell me where to go in Sedona so that I might get some advice. The 17 year old in still in Colorado finishing up high school. I CAN'T DO THIS AGAIN. It has aged me beyond my years.
P.S. Just found out today that it's crack cocaine again. I don't have the strength to do this again and I'm the parent of a 49 year old child. All she cares about is herself!
