Reply To: she thinks she's the drama queen


Hi Jan, yes, she is excited to go. She thinks thinks that by leaving our region, she will be leaving her problems behind. I am so sad that she does not know that her problem is going with her!
and as you say, his abuse may escalate while away, and she may feel stuck/trapped.
I wish she didn’t have to go through this. I wish she could just say ‘enough’ right now. I wish we could be of more use as parents in protecting our daughter. That is the killer for me actually. That we can’t. And it goes against every parenting instinct we have, to be silent when she is literally flying into heightened danger.

Thanks so much for all your help. I appreciate all the suggestions and wisdom and experience you share. You are redeeming your pain well by helping others, thank you <3
