Well, a family member recently saw daughter - said says she actually looks pretty well.
Her reason for not contacting me apparently is
1. I am too hard on her
2. First time I saw her out of jail I did not hug her (see Baby Steps)
3. My blog here has put her life on display
Sigh. Family member also reports that the real truth is likely she prefers to surround herself with people who feed into her BS. Sadly, I must agree. This would be the "boyfriend's" family.
But. I am glad if she really is doing well. I would be happy to shout from rooftops, mountains, blogs the good news - a recovery story - a happy ending. [A new beginning]
Until then, I'll post as I see fit - what I feel, what I believe, what I know... what I think may help other parents and addicts. I don't know any other way to do it.
I had no idea she knew of my blog. I do not think she's actually read it, though. I suspect those who are in the grips of enabling her and "boyfriend" may take offense at some things I've written. That's too bad. Like my daughter, any one of them could pick up the phone, or visit, and have a meaningful conversation about the situation. This has never happened - from the time I learned about her heroin use over 2 years ago up to today.
