Depressed and missing my little girl

Monday, June 16, 2014

My youngest daughter was arrested for the first time in her life. She's 30 yrs old coming this 5th of July. She's bipolar and an alcoholic. She had her own home a nice boyfriend and a great job. She's beautiful ans so stunning she turns heads both genders all the time. On the outside she's amazing. On the inside she's full of turmoil and lost. She's always been different from the norm, always quiet as she observed and absorbed the world. She was her older sister's shadow. Always envied her sister's beauty and like ability, not realizing she had her own. When she was 14 a new boy in the block took an interest. She ran off with him at 15. She married him and suffered ten years of physical, mental, verbal and emotional abuse. He introduced her to drugs and kept a watchful eye on her believing every man wanted her and she wanted every man. After the last beating and seeing him with another woman she came to her senses, so I thought. Ever since then she has been on a self destructive mission, taking with her any stray man. Everyone that knows her loves her and pity's her. Her scars and bruises are a daily reminder of the life she leads every weekend. This weekend she asked me to bail her out, but I want her to get the help that she needs and I'm hoping she will finally come to her senses and take hold of her life. I miss her already and I wonder what will happen. In the meantime I am depressed and hurting that my little girl is in jail. Emotional eating is on a rampage and at the moment I don't care. emoticon

    I am so sorry to hear what is going on and I know it hurts. But I do think you are doing the right thing to let her get the help she needs. You want this to hopefully be a wake up call for her and maybe the only way for her to get sober. Does she take medicine for her bipolar? Because I know self medicating with other drugs is very common. I will say a prayer for you, her and your family. Be strong, you know you are doing what is best.

    I am so sorry to hear your news. Hopefully, your daughter will get the help she needs. Here, in Massachusetts, there is an alternative to jail time if people go into drug rehab. It seems to help a lot of people make the needed changes in their lives. It must be so hard for you to wish you could do more but know that enabling her is the wrong thing. Try to find an alternative to relieving your stress other than eating. Find an Al-Anon group to join, if you haven't already. My thoughts are with you and your daughter.
