i had told the friend's mom, that i forbid my daughter to go out.
the mom agreed, stating she'll be having a few people over her house tonight.
so i told tiff that she and her friend were more than welcomed to stay at our house.
she took that as a punishment.
and no, she doesn't have a car-her friend does however.
and the mom pointed out to me, that her dd was 18, a freshman in college and if she wanted to go out, that would be her decision.
i had to tell tiffany 'no' to staying at her friend's house.
now she's going around the house (did i tell you she's the most persistent sob i've ever come across? she's worse than i was at 17-and that's bad) promising up and down, that she won't drink.
i don't believe her for one moment.
in 2005, dd was hospitalized x 6 in dual dx units in psyche hospitals-because of drinking and drug problems.
they admitted her w/bipolar but i've done too much research-she doesn't have it. i took her off all her meds and she was the same.
i firmly believe it was when she was using, that she had the major personality changes for the worse.
since her last discharge a yr ago, i've brought her for wkly tox screenings and she's come up clean every single time.
so now she's getting an itch to drink again.
mind you, she swears she doesn't want to resume drinking-just for tonight.
it looks like she'll be staying home unless she becomes so indignant that she walks out.
i wouldn't put that past her either.
then i'll have to think of consequences to those actions.
thinking ahead, thinking ahead.....
