I think parent child relationships can be difficult to figure out your way thru, especially when the child is an adult. As much as you may want to say "ask Jesus to tutor her," that might not be the best approach, and I think you did just fine with telling them that he does not have time to tutor her, because I would also wonder about
intermixing roles, in addition to him really not having time.
I have to admit that kind of response (the ask Jesus, and being hung up on) would be very grating. But I have to wonder what was going on that she did not say dial 911, and get to the hospital, because any caring adult should say that. So it really makes one examine what was going on? Is she like that normally? Is this a healthy relationship?
I would wonder given that you said you have pushed everyone away what do you think about
therapy and meds? I know it can be a real struggle to find a therapist you can click with (it took me seven), but I want to encourage you not to give up.
