Question: Dear Luise: My adult daughter came back from Iraq 8 years ago. Since that time she has been drinking heavily. Yet it is very hard to talk about it with her because she blames me for all of her problems. Three weeks ago she called me and accuse me of doing strange things. When I defended myself she started swearing at me and told me she is “disowning” me. I haven’t talked to her for three weeks. I am afraid to call her as she uses Facebook to vent her feelings. I don’twant to be embarrassed by her emotional instability. Anything you could help me with would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you, A.
Answer: Dear A.: I established a Web-forum three years ago for women with issues with adult children and extended family because more than one exchange plus the input of others facing something similar seemed to be the most helpful. It is a deeply caring resource. Please consider coming over to our community: www.WiseWomenUnite.com Blessings, Luise
