Ok, this is not all my daughters fault, i know she is only reacting to the severe dysfunction and hardships that have occurred through out our lives.
However, I'm about to lose it.
She is so mean and abusive (both mentally and physically) that it's become my normal way of life. This has been going since she was 12 and a half and now she is 16 and a half. I been through every single channel for help, guess what? The 'help' doesn't help. Not only that, you as a parent get blamed for everything. My daughter just got us into yet ANOTHER bad predicament. She became truant, and guess who gets sent to jail if your kid doesn't straighten up? That's right! You guessed it! The parents! My state has one of the strictest truancy laws in the nation. I could easily do a year in jail over this, perhaps more. I know that might be rare cases, but that hanging over my head along with EVERYTHING is else is literally killing me you all. My health has deteriorated something bad, and I literally feel my heart being weak and my blood pressure rising. I feel like I'm going to die of a gd heart attack. I got a year and a half until this child is 18 and I don't know how much longer I can hang on. It's been 4 years already of non-stop abuse, arguing and drama. She is ALWAYS getting into TROUBLE. I have taught her BETTER than THAT. My life SUCKS something terrible. I can't take it you guys, I just can't. I love my daughter SO much but I just want to run away. I wish the laws were different. I wish she was a legal adult at 16, but that's just wishful thinking. I live with a terrorist and no one can help. I am not really looking for any advice because nothing really helps, but maybe some encouraging words and knowing I'm not alone? I mean my GOD. This is actual torture. No peace of mind ever in this house and everything I have to deal with in life on top of it. I'm surprised that I'm still here. I can't believe I got another year and a half to go. Do you know how LONG that seems away??? The day she turns 18, I am packing my car and heading for the hills my friends! That will be my independence day, god willing. I can only hope, that she learns her lessons in life and comes back to me a BRAND new person. That is what I hope for. There is no way I can deal with this attitude for the rest of my life from her. I've been abused by too many people in my lifetime and I REFUSE to ever allow someone to treat me like that again after she turns 18. The only reason why I put up with it now is because the law FORCES me to do it. I can't wait to see the look on her face when I leave to let her know I'm not taking the abuse. She really thinks I'm not leaving, that I'm just blowing smoke. Yeah, keep thinking that , child....
