    I know first hand that secrets will come back to haunt you. Been estranged from adult daughter for 5 years. Never have handled problems the right way.Now I have been on meds for depression. Finally will see a therapist next month.

    I am glad you scheduled to see a therapist. Are the meds for depression helping you? If so , that is great.

    So what caused you and your daughter to be estranged? I am glad you guys seem to be making amends to a reconciliation.

    Take Care

    Maybe you never have handled problems the right way before - but starting meds and therapy sure sounds like you have a great start at handling things right this time. Be glad you are making the effort and proud of yourself for taking those hard steps.

    I hope you can find some company and support here as well so you aren't dealing with it all alone. Welcome to SF :)

    Hi Oreo. Great to hear you’ve taken steps for healing, and are reflecting on the past. Reckoning that can often help move us beyond it faster and towards a healthier future. I like to call it, “moving from fear to faith”. You’ll make it. I’ll be praying for affective counseling sessions and for your success in reconciling with your daughter. Don’t be afraid to lay it all on the line here. That’s what we’re here for. Blessings!
