For most of the past 17 years of my daughters 31 years on earth she has been in jail or rehab or doing pain pills that progressively turned to heroin addiction. Over these years she has committed horrible crimes to me and to others. They include lying and stealing , manipulating me terribly, physically abusing me , having her exes arrested falsely when she would hurt herself then blame them. Several times they spent time in jail when she lied. One of them went back with her 9 months ago after that and they are expecting a baby in 3 weeks. She has hustled me out of so many thousands of dollars as recently as this past May when she conned me into sending her $2000 to pay her fines so she could move close to me with my granddaughter whom she just regained custody of in May after 5 years. It was a con job again. She did so many things over the years it would take hours to list. What I have come to accept lately is that now she has been clean for close to a year and she has still been cruel to me. She hustled me out of that money in May. She has kept me from my granddaughter since May. I practically raised my granddaughter for her. She tells people I treated her horribly. She stole my valuables out of my storage shed. For all those years I believed it was the drugs. I forgave her and stood by her for her to abuse me over and over. I gave her cars and money and a home and she spit on me every time. What I realize today finally is that it wasn’t just the drugs. It is who she is. No remorse. No apologies. She abandoned her 5 year old 9 months ago. Nothing for him or I for Christmas. No card. Nothing. But she is pregnant and has my 11 year old granddaughter and I am afraid for them. I really thought with her off the drugs I would have a normal daughter. But I don’t.
