My drug addict daughter who we thought was dead at Christmas is now in a nursing home. She needs 6 weeks of IV antibiotic therapy for the MRSA (methicillin-resistant staph aureus)infection she has coursing through her body. She undoubtedly got it from sharing a needle.

She also needs physical therapy because she can’t walk. The MRSA is in her spine and has weakened her legs from nerve damage.

She hates it there. The staff can’t be manipulated as easily as regular dumb people like me. They know the score and the constant lies and denials.

They already found a crack pipe on her.

Here is the background story if you’d like to catch up:

Since she can’t walk, she can’t leave. She’s in terrible pain. She is getting a Fentanyl patch every 3 days. Lucky for her since she’s an addict. But other residents there want to come and rip it off of her while she’s sleeping. Some are drug addicts too. They want that fentanyl.

This is a shady place they sent her to. But where else do drug addicts expect to go? They aren't considered pillars of society. They lie, cheat, and steal, even from people they say they love. She steals from her own kids. She stole her daughter’s school-issued laptop and sold it for drugs. Of course, my granddaughter got in a ton of trouble and she still can’t figure out how she lost it. My daughter will never tell her the truth. But I know for a fact she sold it.

She stole money from my mom with dementia. Stole from my sister and her husband. Stole from her father. And everyone knew it at the time, except my mom, and she got away with it. No one busted her or accused her. She would have denied it anyway. Everyone just started to put their stuff away. Hide it. Especially guns. They fetch a good price on the street.
