My daughter is 28. We have had a difficult relationship over the years. She has lied, stolen, disowned me ad manipulated me. As a teenager she would go missing for days with people she had just met. Cut herself and at times become violent towards me. She was admitted to a psychiatric hospital. As she got older she has continued to pull at my heart strings. I never know where stand with her. She can be amazing caring to me but the change and become so hurtful. She picks people up quickly and becomes almost obsessed and then they are gone. Her ast relationships have been violent however she always manages to make the other person look bad. This weekend she was drunk. She became aggressive and hit me. She tried to choke me. When her hand were on my neck she told me she was a psychopath. She the sat down and told me that she would make sure I lost my job. She called the metal health team and told them I was being psychotic and needed sectioning for my own safety. She then called the police and told them she needed assistance . I was too frightened to leave as II was convinced he was going to injure herself and blame it on me. Th police arrived and issued a IVO against her to protect me. It is in the court tomorrow. My daughter started too cry and pleaded with the police to let me stay with her. She threatened to kill herself if they made me go home. I refused to pres charges and said I didn't want the IVO. My daughter has a good job and I didn't want her to loose it. I have had this pain and turmoil for 17 years now. I know I have to walk away. I just want her to love me and have a loving relationship. But there is always such hatred from her toward me. I know she tells her friends that I abuse her. Her past relationships have always involved arguments and violence. She is also drinking o a regular basis. Over the years she has taken drugs but I dont think she does anymore. Please can someone tell me I am not going mad. I feel such an awful mother. She is all I have but I know it's never going to change.
