19 yr old daughter with anxiety & ADHD moved in with a twenty-eight-year-old bipolar guy with anxiety. She doesn't make much money, and he doesn't have a job. We don't want her to end up in jail. She's very naive, and seems afraid to ask him too many questions. She doesn't want to move back home. I've only met him once, and now she says he doesn't like to socialize. My husband's never met him, and we're not allowed over to their place. We only get to see her when she visits. What can we do to keep her safe?
She has to keep herself safe. If she’s coming to your home alone to visit, ask her if there abuse happening. You know your daughter, you will know if she’s lying. Ask her questions, is she happy? People who have personality disorders often view themselves as not worthy of love and settle on whoever will have them. There is a difference between being happy and just settling. She may be fine other than she isn’t happy. Leave the door open for her. Tell her if things are bad she can come home.
