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

Today was better than yesterday. I got several texts from Beth of a more positive nature. She wants to buy a pant suit for a big race coming up. She made plans to go to Florida. She intends to go to the Dr. appointment to see about the rash.

I texted her ok to all of the above and said that I am pleased that she sounds better and now has a few things to look forward to. I am not up to spending more time with her than the appt. so I said I would transfer the money to her acct and she can provide the reciept. Her boss will take her to the store. She will bring me the reciepts. If she does not or if she ends up without the proper clothes then there will be no furthur purchases. I tell you this but I did not tell her. She already knows.

Sometimes it is better to text as it removes some of the emotion. I need to remember that she can be and often is very very miserable one minute and happy the next. This exists because of her rapid cycling bipolar disorder even without the drugs.


  1. It was/is so difficult for me to remember the mental illness part of their behavior. But when Andrew quit doing drugs the mental symptoms diminished significantly. They became manageable with medication. The improvement was remarkable. As long as they are drugging there won't be much progress in managing the bipolar and personality disorders Beth (and Andrew and others) have.

    Beth sounds like a real personality, and that she is very pretty when she takes care of herself. I hope someday she can love and respect herself.

  2. Good to hear that you had a better day (:
