Hi megirl,

I have joined the group for advice and not to feel alone with situations in my life and to speak to others in the same situation as myself.
I have two children , my eldest who has just turned 18 years old wants nothing to do with me , I'm scared my youngest will do the same. Their dad is very controlling. I don't have family so I have no one that will understand what I am going through, I feel very low and trying to cope . Would appreciate some advice .

Sorry you have to go through this.
Sad that there are so many families out there that are so unsupportive of eachother.
I have no children but my family have nothing to do with me. Its taken a while but I am so much better without them.
The way family can treat us, would you let a friend treat you the same way? No they wouldn't be a friend after all.
They say blood is thicker than water but I aren't sure about that.
It does scare me at times but I know how much hurt and damage those family members have caused that I dont need them

It's very hard , my parents did not want me up, they left me at the age of 5 . So when I had kids I wanted to be the opposite of my mother. It's hard to get over families not wanting you . My friends tell me my daughter will come back , I'm not sure , I messaged her daily . Sorry to hear what you have been going through.

Gosh at age 5 that's horrendous you were so young they clearly had huge issues.
Parents are meant to be the nurtures and protect us.
You have been through some hard Timex and certainly no fault of your own.
I am sorry to hear family have treated you this way

Hi Chez and :welcome: to the forum your amongst good people who understand many aspects of life going through different situations due to either mental health or physical.

Sorry to hear your with a controlling husband to start with and it's not an healthy life to be in, been there myself and glad he messed up so i could divorce him and your daughter leaving home as totally upset you by how your speaking.

You sound to me that your going through a form of depression and don't know which way to turn for the best and for the reasons your daughter left home only you know that, try and change it if you can to help it not happening with your other child. :hug:

Hi Chez, I totally know where you’re coming from re: daughter. I’m going through similar with my daughter. She’s 17 nearly 18 and though she’s still at home I feel like she doesn’t treat me very well, and is very often off hand with me and would rather be with her friends. its very hurtful. Why has your daughter left home? Xx
