Hi,

 

What reason is she giving you for treating you this way? What is causing this?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
only that she supported me through the drinking and now she was going to support her father. there is a lot of strain between me and her father.
Expert:  Dr Rossi replied 6 years ago.
Is she blaming you or is she punishing you for something? She can support her dad without alienating you. Has this happened in the past or is it a new behavior? What does she want from you?
