I live nearly 200 miles away from my daughter and her significant other called me the other day to ask me to come and get her for a few days and that she'd "lost it". When I asked him what that meant he told me that she'd been drinking a lot lately and has even drank at work. I'm actually shocked to think she would do such a thing but I agreed to pick her up for a few days of respite (she's been working 9am to 11pm in their new restaraunt) and then coming home and having to wash clothes for herself, him and the employees (aprons). I know she has too much on her plate and I told him so. She also needs more sleep to stay healthy and I told him that too but I'm wondering what I should do? I'm going to talk to her about treatment but should I try to arrange for an intervention with her past employers, etc? She only wants to come for a two day visit so she can get right back to work but I think she should take 4 days off so he can see how hard it is to do what she does. He's a hard man to live with though and very controlling.
