The simplicity of my day to day.
This is where I write my thoughts, feelings and my daily trials, tribulations and happy things
|It’s three am. I can’t sleep. We’ve spent all day trying to locate our mentally ill daughter. She’s in Cairns FarNorth Queensland somewhere. She left rehab with just the clothes she was wearing, didn’t take her medication with her and nothing else. We informed the Cairns police and they have been trying to find her, I’m not sure how hard they tried because we’ve located her in the ER at the hospital. She won’t speak to us but apparently has no idea how she got there. We’ve begged the hospital to hold on to her until we can get a psychiatric team to assess her. This is impossible from 4000 kilometres away. We don’t even know if she’s imjured. We have no jurisdiction over her at her age. Waiting until morning to all the hospital again.
|I’m upset, frustrated and angry. Our daughter in rehab has just told us she is sick of being treated like a child and because she refused to be breathalysed she has been asked to leave rehab after three weeks into a twelve week programme. She has no money, is four thousand kilometres away from us and knows no one there. We asked her what her plans were. Where is she going when she leaves there? She just said “I’m blocking your phone number, you’re not helping.”
I’ve blocked her number.
