Gentle Hugs to you and I know what you are suspecting. With your daughters behavior and dx you know that she struggles with maintaining a relationship and also is manipulative and seeks attention.
You are a good mother. Trust your instincts and be proud of who you are as a parent. Do not regret a single decision you have made thus far. You have made many unselfish decisions to keep your family safe so don't let the "stinkin thinkin" in.
I have to believe that you are like me—that you are afraid to admit to the world that you are amazing. That no matter how hard it gets, you are proud of who you are as a person and a parent.
Repeat these words to yourself "I love myself and my abilities as a mother."
Fulfillment and confidence and joy should not be stifled or hidden or kept secret. No one should feel embarrassed to admit they think they’re awesome: a good parent.
Mary, try to let go of her behavior today and she will come back to you.
I feel she went on the defense because she has not told you the whole truth so it was easier to pick a fight and project everything onto you.
I raised 4 children and I remember being told by my daughter that she hated me. My come Back was " I am sorry you feel that way because I love you"
You just wrap yourself up in a warm blanket and relax, let all the bad thoughts out of your mind. Look around you and stay in the moment.
You cannot control your daughter's behavior but try not to get in her destructive path or believe in her accusations against you.
I have you in my prayers and thoughts. Buckets of hugs for you sweet Mary.
