Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
It actually started about 2+ years ago when my other daughter's friend moved while she studied to become a nurse. Apparently Gina has a tremendous dislike for her. Over time, things seemed to improve only to become worse. A year ago at Christmas, she had a short psychoticm episode. I encouraged her to obtain help from a counselor but she has not done so. More recently, she has attacked and accused me verbally and via texts. It does not seem I can do anything right. I refuse to get pulled into the meanness and don't respond to her rants except to tell her I do love her. I don't know what else to do and, frankly, am quite tired of the abuse.
Yes, she lives alone with her two dogs. She does have friends, one of them particularly negative and demeaning. My other daughter will have nothing to do with her. G. has pulled away from other family members. She is financially strapped and is under stress in the management of properties and a small store that she owns.
