Definition of "Insanity?"


Well - you know the last Blog - Daughter arrested 1/7 - got out on 1/13 - ANOTHER PR Bond... amazing. Apparently the public defender did advise her, but of course I only have my daughter's version to go by... Judge released her on PR bond with condition that she return for a drug test tomorrow...

Geez - Guess what? Last night, I get a call... She was arrested AGAIN, this time "boyfriend" was arrested, too. Same thing, different store, different county... additional charge of "tampering with ID", whatever that means. She says they made a mistake, of course.

I don't think it's going to be a revolving door this time... but, who knows

God, isn't it hard to watch...or listen as the case may be. I'm sorry. I am glad you have the baby though. Thank God for that.

Maybe some jail time will be good. Get her clean for awhile at least.

Hey Athena, I would love to invite you to my blog. I have made it private these days so you need an invite....but I need your email. You can reach me through email by going to my blog profile, if you are interested.

It is increadibly difficult to stand by and watch the same thing happen over and over again... we are powerless to stop it.

Damm you always wonder how far down they have to go before they hit bottom? I wish you all the best.

It is so incredibly maddening, sad, frustrating, angering, numbing... frightening that she is in this spot.

... and encouraging to me that she is in jail and may be there fora while, off the streets and seperated from "boyfriend"

She just called me - almost 2 am... to ask me one more time... it would only cost me "$250" to post her bond... She just doesn't get it.

The answer is no. No. NO.

Girlfriend? After the hell I have been through the last week, PLEASE keep saying NO NO NO NO NO

and add visitation to the NO list. I just had to take it off the girls, and I never should have allowed it in the first place other than the way it was, supervised only, and at my house. To have given more, and then have to take it back....well, it set them back and hurt them.

Sigh. And this time, I turn out the bad guy. which is okay, I know that will pass, but it still hurts.

hang in there Sister mine.

Damn. That's tough. My husband overdosed and died last may. Sometimes, I hate this damn disease. We met in AA. I am still in recovery. I love my life now compared to what it was before, and I am grateful to be alive, but I just hate what addiction does to families.

God bless you, your daughter, your family.

I am thankful that I am beginning to find blogs of parents who are sharing my story. I am the mother of a drug addict. He is my 20 year old son who started using oxycontin and now to smoking heroin. I started my own blog April 2008, on the day that my son told me he had a problem. I never saw it coming.
I will keep up with your blog. I pray for parents, like us, every day. It is a struggle that no parent can understand-- until they live the horror themselves.
Blessings,
Debby

I am sorry for what you are going through - but know you are not alone - There are some really good people facing the heartache and frustration of an addicted child

I can relate, after our sons experience in the criminal justice system I am losing all faith in the motive and ability of law enforcement to do there jobs and keep us safe.

I have learned it is all about money for them. Crazy but they don't seem to learn that you can't get blood from a turnip, oh I mean addict.
