It's so sad to watch a young adult that once had everything going for her, lose it all. MY beautiful daughter was outgoing, she played in the band at school and eventually became the drum major. She also possessed an awesome alto voice.
So, it did'nt surprise me at all when she graduated with a full scholarship to attend college. She began dating a young man, unknown to me, that was hooked on prescription medications. At age 19, she married him and they had a child.
It wasn't long before she too had the habit. Her father and I did everything we knew to do to get her off the drugs and alcohol. Six years later she got into heroin and morphine and divorced and took up with another young man who had the same habits. They also had a child.
I received a call on Halloween from DHR to come get the children. When I got there, it was apparent that they were under the influence. It has all escalated from there. She does not have the children, we do.
She finally got arrested in the fall of 2010 and was forced to get off the drugs and go to rehab. At that time, I saw a small bit of my daughter returning. But it was not to be. She went back to the same habits, now she is running from doctor to doctor getting prescription medicines and overtaking them.
I am afraid for her to be around the kids and I try to monitor that situation, the courts say I have to let her see them. She stays with my parents, has never had a job, has nothing but her car. She has become a hoarder and has other mental issues.
I have been to mental authority, they will not take her because she is on the medicines that now she has prescriptions for. She overtakes them, such a sad situation. Does anyone have an answer? She refuses to believe she has a problem at all and will try to have you arrested if you try to help.
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened." - Matthew 7:7-8
