Welcome to my blog. I hope we can help each other endure the pain of the addiction of a daughter or son.

And So It Goes

Well, it took me about three days to get back to normal after my last visit with Beth.

 Apparently she was a little shook up by the entire affair as she has texted various times to apologize and to say she is working on getting into an outpatient program. On the other hand she is still not willing to attend AA or NA meetings unless they are part of the outpatient program and at the same time. She will not waste any of her other time on that. By the way, one of her friends has promised to buy her a car.

DH says that she is stringing me along by making statements that she knows are not true to give me hope. That sounds about right to me.

Anyhow, we are painting the family room and kitchen so we are living in a huge mess. My classes are doing well. The students are learning a lot and I enjoy being with them. It is my great fortune to have a professional interest which is also a hobby and gives me a little extra spending money.

 My youngest is thinking about applying to graduate school in Tampa. My husband is talking about retirement. And so it goes, life goes on.


  1. How do our girls find these "friends" who are so willing to supply all of their needs/wants? The world is filled with enablers!

    Bless your heart Anna. I'm glad you have your classes and your hobbies too, the things you love. We need to paint the downstairs of our house and I dread it because the chaos of everything being off the walls and sitting around, and taped, etc. etc. just makes me frantic almost. What fun! lol The end result is so worth it though!

  2. I wonder what it is about recovery programs that Beth isn't willing to work. Any chance of success seems hugely important to me.
