J707 - Thinking of you and your family today. Hang in there, I know this is a very dark time for you.

Sending you, your DD and your entire family hugs, prayers and light.

In the time she’s under supervision. In the time she’s with her mom. In the time you are “off duty”…
Take care of yourself.
Allow yourself to catch up on sleep. Read a book. Go for a walk. Enjoy a movie.
Whatever get’s your mind to rest.
Don’t worry – the problems will still be there when you clock back in. Only you might be in better shape to deal with them.

Hugs, hugs and more hugs.

Such irony that a young woman who has a devoted father isn't able to recognize her wonderful fortune at the moment. When I read your posts, I started feeling sorry for my kids, wishing I'd given them a better Dad. One who cared. One like you.

Life can be really crappy sometimes. I just hope and pray that this particular crappy chapter is the shortest one in the book of your life.

COming late to this but wanted to send thoughts to you. I have been where you are - my son attempted to take his life numerous times (and that's just the ones I know about, I expect there were more)

However, to give you some hope, this was a few years ago now and although he's still not completely better he is in a much better place than he was then. He managed to finish school eventually and has now moved abroad to work.

There will be light at the end of the tunnel that I promise you. It won't be today. It won't be tomorrow. But it will come.

Last night when talking to my daughter on the phone, I recognized a little improvement in her voice. She was more open to talking. We were laughing together. Not exactly sure what that means but to me it gave me good feelings. While I still don't know when she will be discharged (should be sometime this week) I have taken this time for self care. As we all know what trauma does to our brain, I think I'm better prepared for her release and adjusting back home. I'm off work for the time being (temporary leave for 3 weeks) and exww works from home and can take whatever time off for DD13s outpatient program just as I can. So we are both on the same page. So whatever update this is, this is where it stands today. One day at a time.

I'm so sorry your daughter, you and the rest of your family are living through this particular moment.

Your response is impressive.

It bothers me that there is so much sadness among the young. But truly they see a world in which things seem to be getting worse every day. Where is the hope and the light?

We all have to try and make it a better place.

Life can be good but there are so many challenges.

Teens are especially fragile. I'm happy she's doing better. Tell her how grateful you are that she came to be with you. Tell her she matters. Tell her the world needs her especially now. The world needs our children. We need to step up for them and make this a healthier more peaceful planet. They deserve all our love.

I'm sorry she could find nothing to want to stay for. Yet the world is full of possibility. We are all full of possibility. I'm so happy she's still here to find all the good things in life. It's hard to be human. Incredibly hard. You're a great dad. Show her your hope for humanity. Every good person here now is essential.

Keep texting too. They read them.....

My daughter gets discharged today from the psychiatric hospital. All post treatment is set up for us. Child psychiatric MFT amd MD along with outpatient program. They will also speak to us there upon discharge on how to handle all this.

I've taken extreme self care during these past 2 weeks. From my past experience (why I'm on SI in the first place) it helped me to know what I needed to do for myself. Although I'm anxious, I know I got this! I'm focused, strong mentally and exww and I are on good terms with everything following. The real work begins. A new chapter. A new beginning.

Glad she’s headed home and glad you have a plan for her and for yourself.

Hawke posted 10/29/2020 17:50 PM

I'm glad she gets to go home and has a treatment plan set up. Sending you both strength, courage, love and light!
