Help for my daughteer

by Barbara
(New Port Richey, Florida.)

My youngest daughter is married to a man who is an alcoholic. He can;y keep a job. Has teenage children from a previous wife, that making my daughter's life a living hell. She bought the house before they were married. They don;t have any children together, and she doesn't have any of her own.She leaves him many times, stays at my house, but then goes right back to him, his verbal abuse. He is draining her completely. Her health is being affected. He has a terrible temper, when he is intoxicated, and damages the house. Please, I am fearful for her life, but she seems so weak to leave him or kick him out. Where and who can I get help for her?

She Must Get Her Own Help

You can't get help for your daughter. She is an adult and must suffer the consequences of her choices. I'm sorry if this offends you but it is something you need to accept.

help for my daughter
by: Anonymous

The dynamics in situations like this are very complicated. I have experienced them myself. I began to realize that I needed to move on when my family stopped trying to help me and be there for me. It seems as long as I had them to worry about me,It took some of the worry off of myself and I could keep on hoping it would get better and work out as I still had my family. I also wanted to prove to them that somehow I had the ability to work things out and that they were wrong. When they started to take care of themselves and leave me out - they changed the way I reacted to the whole situation. I was the miserable one left alone to deal with my own predicament. I left soon after that. Alanon will help you to deal with the fears you have for your daughter and the need you feel to rescue her.
