I want my daughter back
Posted by Mum on 13 March 2013.
My daughter will be 30 this year - she has made some poor decisions over the past 15 years and gone from one disastrous relationship to another. Every boyfriend has had an addiction to drugs, alcohol, prescription drugs and anything that they can get hold of. Every boyfriend has lived off the state and every boyfriend has at some time been in prison for a drug related offence. My daughter has chosen to be involved in this scene and has recently made it clear that she will chose who she spends her life with but I refuse to give up - I want her back - I feel such a failure as her mum. 18 months ago she injected morphine patches and went into respiratory arrest - she was clinically dead when the paramedics got to her - I feel so helpless and I mourn her as though she is already dead. I just don't know where to turn or what to do - I recently went to Dr and CDAT appointments with her and I am now convinced that she will never change - she always talks such a good game but never walks it. I love her so much and really do miss her - I just want my daughter back.
