So here it is. I'm a dad not a mom. My daughter has lived with her mother she is 22 and returned from college. The living arrangements at her mothers had turned toxic to her. She made the decision to move to Washington and live with me everything was going awesome. I'm so proud of her. She has been here three months.She got a job and was getting ready for fall semester for prerequisite for nursing school. She came to me and told me her mother was making a Dr. Appt. for her. She said she has been dealing and hiding from everyone that she had been depressed for acouple of years. Did your mother know of this? Yes. why hasn't this been addressed sooner? She went to the appt. she felt as if nothing was accomplished. She has just told me that she now feels as if she needs to be with her mother right now. Aaaaaagggg this is killing me inside. I do not want her back in that environment . I have asked her to stay a month and we will get help and get through this together. She is still wanting to go back to mom. Why? We have had so many accomplishments working together. She has packed all her belongings that she herself shipped from moms to my house,and doesn't know if she will be back or not. She has told me I just need to get myself fixed in my head something is not right. I have cried so much just knowing she is scared and confused. She has kept this from me for three months that she has lived here. What do I do? I have been very supportive with her decision and that is breaking my heart. I am very concerned with her mental well being and the fact of moving back with her mother. I'm lost in all this and scared for her. Someone please help!
