trying not to enable

by cgc

my 31 year old daughter is in rehab. She is starting to realize she has to talk and cannot keep pushing her problems away. i live with much guilt because i did not realize how unhappy she was. i made sure she did the things that gave her joy. But life was always a lot for her. She had ankle surgery and became addicted to painkillers. this led to heroin addiction. She is a talented young woman with no confidence i guess i sometimes need to express myself about it the stress from all of this and the difficulty for me to accept that this all happened. there are so many people this is happening too it makes me angry anyway i am trying to make the distinction between enabling and loving listening
