trying to survive having a grown daughter who is addicted to heroin. she was on heroin a few years back then started going to a clinic . I told her I was going to take her children. they put her on methadone. but I don't believe that's what she's doing now, to many lies and excuses and always needs money.

I have been dealing with chaos for so long with my daughter. her 2 kids were removed from the home and have been staying with my son and his wife. it's been almost a year and the lies and chaos continue with my daughter. A friend gave me a book called Setting boundaries with Your Adult Children by Alison Bottke. I felt like I was reading about my life and it did helped me to stop enabling. I try to let go and let God to give me some sanity. It is very difficult. It can be emotionally draining. Just when I think she can't stoop any lower she does. she has said so many harsh words to me when she doesn't get what she wants from me.

I will look for that book .Thanks , I can use every resource to try to get through this and stay strong and stay focused. I've been blind for so long and this is very hard emotionally. I feel like I'm turning my back on her. I worry about the kids and she knows that.
