My story of pain.
Posted by Kaleidoscope on 8 May 2015.
I don't know exactly when my beautiful 23 year old daughter started to use drugs. Maybe in high school? That is when I started noticing a change in her behaviour....She dated an older man who got her pregnant in Grade 12. I got her to have an abortion. All my family were devastated! I got divorced when my two kids were still in primary school. Was this the reason? I have so many questions and no answers! All I want is for Kim to be whole and happy! I feel so hopeless and don't know what to do, expect or say. I feel ashamed, hurt, betrayed. What did I do wrong and how do I fix it? Can I fix it? How do I pick up the pieces of my broken family, my life, my daughter's life? What about her brothers, my other children? How do they feel? The rest of our family, how do they feel? I feel weak and wish that life could come to an end.
