I am so sorry about her leaving @Moonlight this is understandably very painful. You haven't heard from her or Dad at all? Do you have any support around you at the moment? We're here to listen

Jakeshelp-I am so glad you are there for her and your grandson. You are demonstrating what an amazing dad looks like with your support. I understand what you mean when you say she tells you EVERYTHING. Its both healing and stressful. Nothing surprises me anymore.

My daughter is still in a residential care and is supposed to come home Tuesday- We got a call yesterday that she self harmed at the facility. She is not even safe when she if away. I am sad and scared and losing hope. Today we go visit her and have family "group" . It sucks because its 2 hours 1 way to see her- so we don't go everyday.. I don't know what is next. I don't know if they will put her in another hospital since this place she's at has a 1 week limit. So many unknowns- we are so deep in this fog....my head and heart hearts.

Her dad was the one who rang me and told me she would not be coming home.. no chance to really even discuss it. I work too much. I get it.. i'd probably want her out of their house if she did this stuff there. I already blame myself as it is, and none of it is helping at all.
My son returned as planned... but seeing him only walk off the plane.. my heart literally hurt, chest pain.. pain in the arms.. full blown anxiety attack. it was horrible
She had her first headspace appointment... im just sad i wasn't there for her,and im sad that she thinks so poorley of me

@Moonlight It is highly likely she will come back, she just needs some time. It's okay to feel all of the pain. There's an incredible bond between children and their mother, sometimes it just takes a bit of breathing room. Are you doing anything for your own self-care and to give yourself some love at the moment?
Also have you ever chatted to Parentsline?

Moonlight- I understand that sadness your feeling, I grieve too when I am not there every second with my daughter. SO much is out of our control. I agree with Breez about the Mother daughter bond. Is this a good reconnection time with your son now that he is back? Hopefully your ex keeps you in the loop about everything. Could writing and sending some encouragemnt cards to your daughter every few days help you while she is not with you? It would give her time to read and know your thoughts in her own time and just help get your feelings out there to her.
