Hello! I am so relieved to have found this forum! I have a 39 yr old daughter who has cut off communication with me for the last year. She is an only child, been married twice and has a son. I have helped to support her emotionally and financially through two bad marriages. I also let her move back to my house after her first marriage broke up. She and my grandson lived with me for three years during which my husband (her father) died after a long illness. I remarried a few years ago to a wonderful man. We decided to retire and we moved south. I made every effort to include my daughter in my plans. Since she was happily married at the time, she seemed fine with my moving. However, once her marriage broke up, she became very angry with me for abandoning her and for marrying someone she now says she does not like. I finally put my foot down after years of giving her money and said "no more". That is when she stopped talking to me. After years of being supported by others, she is on her own and learning lessons she should have learned in her 20s. She still feels entitled. I quit being rescue mom. I have been in counseling to help deal with the pain I feel. It has been helpful. It is even more helpful to know there are others out there going through this. She has been diagnosed and treated for depression, but no other illnesses. I don't know if she will ever come around to talking to me. At least she allows me to see my grandson. I am so happy about that. How does this happen, that a child becomes so angry and alienated? Thanks for listening.
