A very long story my daughter is 35 and is using methodone and diazpan and has uses much worst she won't engage with services but over the last year has been able to keep her self clean more or less but yesterday she ended up in hospital and when I arrived she was stoned again .After lots of test she was discharged after four days. I went to see this morning and she has broken my heart again to see her stoned,she said she isn't it's just pain killers but I have seen her so often like this. I feel totally helpless as her sister and brother won't allow her chaos into there lives.I have brought up her son and her daughter is with her father. I feel her life style cannot be maintained by her body for much longer and feel so desperate ,I love her but cannot be with her when she is stoned. I am feeling very emotional and so very sad and I don't know what else to do anymore I am 64 and don't have the emotional stamina to help her.
