Re: She left

I understand what you mean. If this was just a situation of her moving out that would be one thing but she was and is a drug addict alcoholic and moved out to party and do those things more. She went to rehab and has been in sober living and we have helped her out. We have helped her with her basic needs and rent. This was not an issue of a kid wanting to be independent because she moved out and went to become dependent on another person. So with that choice and the current choices she hasnt been an independent
17 year old who wanted to spread her wings and fly.

This is about her & really she needs to do this for herself. If you raised her to be an intelligent human, she will figure these things out on her own. It's best she moved out. One day you'll feel better about this. My mom & I have the closest relationship we've ever had and we've gone a few years without talking. Just give this time & she'll come back around---but you've got to lovingly "let go."
