This is a difficult post since i am going to shoot this out as straight as i can and with no sugar coating. my daugter is 40 years old and i think she has finally done herself in. she has always been mentally ill but was functional growing up. she was great in school and just at home was she impossible. then as the years passed she became an alcoholic and got into all sorts of drugs. this has been the case the last years. we tried to help her as a child but in those days not much was known about depression. i believe her depression to be the bi polar type. all of these past years she has not worked and has lived wth (2) different men off and on. her dad and i are divorced and her dad and brother tried to help her for years and finally gave up on her. of course i stayed to help her, for i am her mother. i didn't give her money for drugs but did try and see to her personal needs, such as food and other personal items. during the last couple of years she has got so bad that she calls my cell all the time and leaves the worst messages imaginable. they can't be repeated here but trust me she has called me every name in the book. just rememmber the woman in the exorcist movie and these are the type words she has spoken to me. now she is really sick and i think she is dying. i mean literally dying. she has never been medicated for any of this. she has refused all help. this past thursday i called her brother and dad and told them i had to have their help. we called the adult protective services and told them she has not eaten a bite in 13 days. not one bite. she said she wanted to die and we couldn't stop her. social services sent a woman there on friday morn to check this out and told her she would be coming there for the next 10 weeks. i called my daugther this morning and she is in terrible shape. i am going to call social services monday morn and tell them they are going to have to force her to the hospital. she has something wrong. it could be liver failure, aids, cancer, hepatitis, i don't know. i just know she has lost at least 40 pounds in the last several months. i am at my wits end. i am scared to death. i am praying this will not send me over the edge. i must keep going no matter what happens. i just needed to share this. i am sorry this post is so long, but i wanted you all to understand a little background. this is what can heppen to a person without medical help and a drug user and alcoholic. oh i am so scared, i don't know how i can deal with this if she dies.
