i disowned my mentally ill child ...edit with question
shes now 17 , in the state we live in shes concidered a adult and she knows it . At age 16 she went off her meds and refused therapy any more , she has been running absolutly wild doing really bad things there is to much to tell . The police wont do anything ive tried everything shes disapeared for days at a time doing drugs and having sex with anyone that will have her . My husband moved out and took our small children with him because of her i agree the things shes doing are horrible and she was abusive to them . I had her arrested last week to try to wake her up after she punched holes in my wall , kicked in my bedroom door stole all my money and jewelry then put a knife through my wall .the lies she tells are unbelivable i cant go out of my house witthout people staring at me . well i had enough she called me to come get her where ever she was staying this week , i told her no she found her way there she can find her way back to the person she decided to go live with , then i told her i want nothing to do with her until shee comes to her senses and gets help . If this is the right thing to do why do i feel like a big piece of crap ? It just feels wrong to turn my back on my child, everyone who knows the situation says i should have done it along time ago i want help for her more than she wants it , hopefully she will wake up before its to late
what can be done were do you start to change these stupid kind of laws that takes away a parents right to get treatment for a diagnosed mentally ill child ?
