Chest hurts

Monday, January 04, 2021

My oldest daughter Michelle was arrested Friday night for breaking into storage units. The units unfortunately belonged to my youngest daughter Leanne and her husband. They set bond this morning; she had a outstanding check so this was added. I always said if one of my children got in jail I wouldn’t bail them out. I’m doing my best to stick to this but it’s hard. Leanne and my son Scott are considering getting her out. Michelle’s youngest child’s bday is tomorrow. She promised she’d see her in her bday and Brooklynn keeps asking how much longer til Mom picks me up 😢😢. I started having chest pains again this morning. They had stopped for about a week. I guess I was right; stress. Scott ask me what I wanted to happen. I said for her to straighten up, get a job and take care of her kids. Is that too much to ask for? I work and supply all the kids needs. I ordered Brooklynns cake and will pick it up. If I hadn’t she wouldn’t have one unless Leanne got it and she would’ve. I just don’t get it......

    I have five children and I always told them I'd bail them out of jail as fast as I could, because jails are full of really mean bad people (including the women.) I heard about a boy who got arrested and his Dad, to teach him a lesson, wouldn't come bail him out, and he was a thin boy, and the thugs in the jail cell, drowned him in the toilet. The autopsy showed they hit his throat on the rim and it swelled shut & he died.

    Oh Vickie, that's horrible. Please take care of yourself. The rest will work out. Maybe this will be the wake-up call your daughter needs to get her life back on track. Let her siblings help her if that is what they want to do. They might get through better than you being mom. You are in my prayers.

    I am so sorry you are going through this. Easy for me to say but please take care of yourself. The chest pains are scary. So glad that Brooklynn will have a birthday cake. emoticon

    First of all take care of yourself. My brother went to prison for drugs. It broke my heart and my mother’s . Praying for you and your family. No easy answer.

    Family dynamics are complicated! Years ago, I had a sibling who used drugs and stole from family and others. She was in and out of rehab and jail multiple times. It's hard on the family and so stressful. No matter what you do to help, the ultimate choice to straighten up has to come from her. It wasn't easy going through this years ago. Sister is straightened out now-- home owner, working, engaged-- but I still worry.
    Try to remember that your daughter's actions do not reflect on you as a parent
