DD is in a bad place, sad
Old 08-19-2019, 04:10 PM

DD texted us last night. Told us:

*She and BF had a big fight
*Most of his family hates her and its her fault
*She will probably be sleeping in the driveway in her car for a few days but its OK.
*He wants her to get some kind of help (though she has no insurance and never applied for Medicaid in CO)
*They were going to talk about what kind of help to get.
*She is using Meth among other things
*She is sorry.

She so desperately needs medical help. She is in depressive episode and of course as usual, self esteem is very low.

Please pray for her, and for us. I asked. She does not want to come home.

Thanks!
Nancy

I am so very sorry. It is so hard to be a bystander and not be able to do anything. You are doing the best you can and your family and daughter have my prayers. I hope that she can get the help she needs and reaches out for it. At least she is in contact with you. Hugs to you.

I'm thinking of you and your daughter. It is a tough thing to watch your child suffer and be powerless to help. I know from experience.

I know you are hurting because she is hurting. Even though it hurts, I see it as positive that she is still willing to be open with you. I hope she gets the help she needs. Prayers for you all!

Yikes.

Good sign that BF wants her to get some help. Clearly she needs it because it doesn't sound as if she is really functioning right now.

Is she young enough that she can still be on your insurance?
