My family has been through something similiar, many years ago. It took extreme measures to have my little sis finally get clean - and even after it has been a life-long need of hers for drama and attention. I often feel helpless to help - she doesn't really want real solutions, just momentary rescues.

So - I live MY life. I keep my children away from it. I try not too much of myself over to worrying about her.

I know your situation is so much worse - and a child is different, no matter how old. But I think you need to begin to protect yourself and your life from the onslaught. Dreading the phone, knowing something else is about to happen must be very hard to live with every day. Is there anyway to give yourself "worry time" for a little while each day and then otherwise put it away?

I'm sorry things are so tough. It must feel so hard to have this always hanging over you. I hope you get some relief soon.
