  • Sounds like she's mad at you for something.
    What does she say you did to her that was so wrong?
    Could she be justified in her anger towards you?

  • your daughter is 64? I think you win the award for oldest CM member then.

  • Those aren't bad odds (6/7) Would she be willing to do some family counseling w/ you? Could she have some form of mental illness or has this be an ongoing situation? I guess count your blessings that you have a good relationship w/ 6 of your 7 children. Hopefully you can get her to come around before it's too late. If not, at least you know you tried & never gave up on her. GL

  • Maybe she's suffering some age related health issues. Depression perhaps?

  • She may be going through an issue like a relationship, work, money etc. We always hurt the ones we love the most :)

  • It sounds as if you aren't the only person your daughter has issues with. She seems to have difficulty maintaining close relationships, which is kind of sad, but it seems unlikely that the problem has as much to do with you personally as it does with her, since her friends and siblings have pulled away. I'm sorry things have worked out that way. Hopefully you don't have to give up on your daughter completely, but you don't deserve to be verbally abused by her, or treated porly. It's okay for you to set loving but firm boundaries with her, and walk away when she starts being disrespectful or unkind. Tell her you'll be glad to talk to her when she can be fit company. Good luck.
