My daughter loved at home until she was 39. seven years ago,

Customer Question
My daughter loved at...

My daughter loved at home until she was 39. seven years ago, she moved in with er boyfriend. Now she hates me.

Doctor's Assistant: How is your mood? Are you experiencing regular sleep disturbances (e.g. trouble falling asleep, waking up early)?

I am heartbroken because she has told me she wishes i was dead, that i embarrass her

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Psychologist should know?

I was an alcoholic because my husband was a heavydrinker. I did not know until i married him. Drinking comforted me

I didnt know my husband was a heavy drinker until we got married. It brought up nervous tension from when my father left when i was 10. I had heavy responsibilities as my mother had to work nights and i had to care for my 10 years younger brother and work from age 14. I never knew when my husband would come home and i started to drink beer. I quickly began to drink 12 beers every other night starting when my daughter was seven. She didnt like it, but we got along fine. My husband passed away. Now I am addicted to opiates because of 3 joint replacement surgeries Of course, she hates this. She is 45 and in a fairly good relationship, but she says she loves me even though she doesn'twant me in her life. she served me with an order of protection. This hurts me so much that I can barely function. I have only my brother, no other relatives.

As a mother myself, I know this must be so terribly painful for you. And yet as you say here there is a reason she does not feel safe having you in her life. Have you considered getting treatment for addiction? She may need to see you doing something serious to get help.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
