I’m finally coming to terms with accepting that I need to have my daughter out of my life. She’s 44, totally rejected and turned her back on me when I was depressed a year ago & took an overdose of pills. I had lost someone close to me & she knew it & I’d been down for months but she never cared or noticed. She’s always been toxic & I’ve always had to walk on eggshells around her. I’ve tried to contact her this past year to have us sit down & talk but she won’t take my call, won’t answer texts & rebuffs any suggestions her Dad makes. I’ve talked with my therapist & psychiatrist & both agree I’ve done all I can & it’s time for me to just take care of myself. I got so anxious about it last weekend I didn’t feel safe & my doctor hospitalized me for the weekend. That’s when I knew it had to stop. I’m now on meds for anxiety (as well as my depression) & feel better. I have no friends, no family but my husband. I have another daughter who lives a couple hours away who is a clinical psychologist...you would think she would be sympathetic & supportive...but she never even asks how I’m doing. Our only contact is when we FaceTime weekly so I can talk to my little granddaughters which I love. We go visit every 6 weeks or so but it’s all about the kids. But I’ll take what I can & love it.
Thanks for listening. By the way...I’m happy & keep busy with reading, crochet & coloring.
