Today I had to change my phone number so my drug addict daughter can no longer get in touch with me. This leaves me feeling grief stricken but I have no option even though she is homeless and has no job. I just can’t do it anymore, always giving in to her demands, giving her money, thinking I’m helping her, when I’m reality I’m only enabling her habit. I’m struggling to cope with the guilt I’m feeling, like I’m letting her down but this has gone on for 20 years.
