Today I am going to see my daughter. I have a feeling of dread. Although I am not a doctor I know her mental health is at Rock bottom. She is addicted to weed. For the last 15 years her life has been chaotic. She knows it's bad for her but cannot break the habit. I have tried everything I can think of to try to help her. I am worn out with it. Drug services, having her stay with me, she has been sectioned twice, nothing seems to help her. She has moved house but she keeps going back to it. Feeling so confused about what might happen next. It's getting stupid 20 missed calls from her yesterday. She cries rants and raves it's all so distressing to listen to. Think her support network from professionals is breaking down too. So frustrating for me. Just don't know what will happen next.
