I keep telling myself that I am stronger than this, I can deal with this, but I need someone to talk to.. The two people I used to always be able to talk to on here don't want to talk to me anymore. Would be nice to have someone that does.. My daughter (she's 17), is always telling me she hates me. I asked her why, and she would not say. I told her if you don't tell me why, I can't do anything to change it, and she said it doesn't matter what you do, I will always hate you. At that point, I had to quit talking to her cause I started crying. I know she's upset from something I did quite sometime ago over this boy she was talking to, she got really upset with him, was crying for hours, so I asked him to talk to her about it, and he ended up telling her I told him. She didn't like it cause we moved back in with her dad. She had horrible feelings over me being sick. She turns to me for someone to talk to.. I do whatever I need to take care of her. I am not controlling. I let her go out whenever she wants, no curfue. I don't screem at her, and never talk to her in a bad way. I know that I am a good mother.. But I have reached that point that I am tired of people treating me like shit and it doesn't matter who it is, I don't want to put up with it. I am moving toward the end of the year and getting a house, and I will have a good job. I'm taking medication which helps with the illness that I have, so I am not bedridden with pain and fatigue anymore. Think I am doing pretty good. I want something positive to happen with my life. but this stupid depression.. how is one to not get upset over such a comment. How do I go about handling this? Do I demand that she shows me respect if she chooses to live with me (and I already know she wants to). Should I ask her if she would go to councelling with me? I'm sure she'll say no. I don't really know what to do.
