Welcome! I'm glad you found us but sorry to hear about everyithing you've been going through with your daughter. I agree that it sounds like you've done everything you can (and more!) to try and help - I liked your analogy and what you said not being able to change someone.

I'm glad that journaling and talking to your DH helped some- please feel free to come here anytime to vent!

Hi and welcome to the board. Sounds like you certainly have your share of trials. How old is your middle dd? I'm assuming she's 18 or older? Sometimes as heartbreaking as it is you do have to take the 'tough love' approach. Sometimes they just have to hit bottom before they make healthy changes. Many gentle hugs to you!
