What a very sad poem, this tugged at my heart. This happens a lot lately and people die every day because of this 'hopeless case'. But I believe people can still change and we can only hope its not the end. This was an awesome piece.
Maple, I have to admit, I don't really know what to say about this. I know a little about the situation through you but have been obviously helpless in saying anything of any use to you. Sometimes, despite how seemingly cold it is, there just isn't a good answer. You just have to hope she has enough fight in her and enough reasons to live to kick these blasted habits once and for all.
I'm so sorry that things are this bad for you at the moment.
Andrea, I am so sorry. As parents we just want our kids to be healthy and happy, even as adults we never stop wanting that for them. It's incredibly hard to watch your child destroy themselves and unable to stop them. I wish we had that magic wand that just waved and their addictions would be gone. My heart breaks for you and I can only send you strength and prayers. Hugs dear friend-
