I just read “Candy” by Luke Davies – a novel about addiction that is very informative about the way heroin addicts think – also, for me, it was chilling in that one of the characters is a beautiful girl who falls in love the main protagonist, an older man who has used heroin for years – and he gets her hooked, also. The irrational thinking, especially about Candy’s pregnancy, seems very apropros to me and was enlightening in a way that I never hoped to need. Supposedly it is now or soon will be a movie - wonder if i'll watch it? I wonder if SHE'LL watch it.
Last I heard anything was on the eve of 12-27. I missed a call at 7pm from a nurse at a hospital in East Tx... The vm said "I just spoke with you about your daughter - she is being released now but doesn't have her cell phone and needs a ride".... Of course, I hadn't talked to anyone there. So I called the hospital and they were a bit confused, then embarrassed - earlier they had talked to her "boyfriend's" mom, and had been told that was the mother... they coouldn't tell me what she had been treated for, due to HIPPA laws. Sooo - that's the last I heard - she hasn't returned any calls or txt messages. Obviously he had her phone and car...
I have been keeping track of her cell phone records - as of New Years day there were several calls to local pawn shops.
I called the "boyfriend's" parents the other night and he said that they were both fine and asleep or "resting" - but I could tell from phone log that at least her phone was in dallas - sooooo. Nothing much I can do, except worry. It's a prepaid cell phone - out of talk time - am thinking of adding $10 just so I can keep track of who they are contacting, but I haven’t so far - I bought her the phone for her b-day, so that if she had an emergency she could call. I have quit putting money on the phone for voice calls, but I do pay 9.95 a month so that she can send and receive text messages… everyone who cares about her has txt messaging on their phones (Me, her dad, brother, sister) – I wish she felt the need to txt us, to really get help.
