My 26 year old son is a meth addict. My daughter just turned 23. She loves her brother very much, however, he will not call her because he is ashamed of his life. He and his father (my ex) are not getting along. I on the other hand, am doing everything I can to get him to realize he needs to get off meth. He calls me and yes, I have helped him out with $ but have stopped this for the most part. What I am wondering, how are your other children reacting. It seems that my daughter (who I used to be very close to) has pulled away from me. I know she feels she is in the middle of her brother and father, but I have not done this. I do not want to lose my relationship with her because of him. I love both my children and will always be there for her as I am for him. How is everybody else dealing with this or is this just my daughter. She can be cold sometimes like her father, but not always. I know she loves us both, is she just protecting herself or is she angry with me??
