How are you feeling today?
It is understandable how stressful the past year has been for you and I hope that the massage session was able to relieve some of the tension and discomfort for you. I saw that your daughter brought you flowers yesterday which is very special and a real testament to all the incredible support you have been providing her – she is very lucky to have you.
I know that you mentioned that you were unsure about how to manage her anger or rude outbursts and that sometimes you talk to her after, and was wondering if these talks have been helpful? I know that @Hannah_RO shared some links to communication articles and wanted to ask if you’ve found these helpful or have been able to try any of the suggestions provided?
I also wanted to share the one-on-one coaching service with you again as I thought that they may be able to provide you with some support around managing this if you’re interested.
It is also really great to hear that you are taking some time for yourself this weekend and will being an online intuitive painting workshop! Whilst you have been doing such an amazing job at supporting your daughter and helping her, it’s just as important that you are also focusing on your own wellbeing and prioritising some time for yourself.
Thank you for keeping us updated, I hope you have a lovely weekend and enjoy your session!

Please know you are not alone @Worriedmun . You are doing what you can that that's what's most important. We hear that it is tough right now and at times you feel flat and empty.
It sounds like your daughter is aware of your struggles and is therefore able to check-in with you regularly. If it's a few tears when you give her a hug, please know that's okay.
As for your painting workshop, would focusing on the techniques be some sort of a mindfulness activity for you? Otherwise, would allowing yourself to be free with any stroke be of any help? Sorry, you can probably tell I'm not a painter whatsoever!
Please take care. And yes, when you have a chance, you can have a peep at some of the resources that have been posted.
It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
