for the past year i have been extremely depressed. i wasn't there for my daughter and she started buying prescription pills off the street apparently on a regular basis and abusing them. this led to her starting shop lifting. the shoplifting led to her being arrested 3 times in the past 6 months, twice as a juvinal and once she turned 18 she was arrested again! she blames me bacause i have been in such a catatonic state i was barely functional. now she is 18, and still in high school, fixing to graduate, and living at home. how far can i restrict her? she is an adult. she went out for the first time tonight since she got off juvinal probation, im scared to death! i left her in jail over night on her last arrest so she could see what its like to be in an "adult" jail and maybe learn a lesson. tonight her "shoplifting buddy" called who is not welcome at my house, she might be meeting up with her tonight to hang out. i don't think there is anyting i can do but pray. she is in counceling now and taking zoloft for depression and something for sleep. she got 6 months adult probation, 30 hours community service, $355 fine and theft class. she got the same as a juvenial, how do i know she learned her lesson now that she knows being in "adult" jail is so much different? im so scared! im going to try to go to sleep now.....please give me some advice.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
