Hi @Veronica789 and welcome to the online community! We're glad that you've reached out for some extra support.
I'm sorry to hear that you feel like your daughter hates you, and that on top of that you're trying to manage epilepsy. Do you feel comfortable telling us a little bit more about what's going on with your daughter and how that's affecting you?
Sending you all the best, we're here to listen

Hi @Veronica789 thank you for getting back to us today and sharing more about what has been going on for you.
I'm sorry to hear that your daughter is always angry at you and that you don't feel like your a part of the family, that sounds like such a horrible to be in. No one deserves to feel like they are not a part of their own family. Do you mind me asking if this is a recent change or has it always been like this?
You mentioned that you had spoken to your husband about this before. Was he able to give you any ideas on how to communicate with her better? I'm also wondering if you have tried to talk to your daughter about this in a calm environment at all and expressed how hurt you are?
I can only imagine how all of this must feel, especially hearing that you are managing all of it on your own. Having to manage all of this, as well as the stress of an upcoming surgery is a lot to be dealing with. I was just wondering what kind of supports you have around you right now? Is there anyone that you might feel comfortable talking to about this whether it be a friend or a health professional?
Please remember that you're not alone and we're all here for you.

Hi @Veronica789 , I can hear how difficult and painful this whole journey has been for you. It sounds like you're doing the best you can right now, but that perhaps you're feeling judged by your daughter and husband for struggling to cope. It seems like they both care a lot about your wellbeing and that they hold some fears about your epilepsy when you are out of the house, but you're totally right - you can't be expected to stay at home all the time and put your life on pause for fear that something might happen.
You mentioned that your husband brought up the idea of trust with regard to your drinking. Can you think of anything that might help you to rebuild that trust? Is there anything specific that they need from you in order to feel like they can trust you again?
I'm sorry to hear that self-help hasn't been particularly useful for you. If you feel like it might be helpful for you to get some extra support, DrinkAware has some fantastic resources and support services in the UK that you could try.
Please feel free to keep us updated @Veronica789 , you are not in this alone and we are here for you every step of the way

Well done for getting support at the rehabilitation place, did you find your time there helpful? What other coping mechanisms did they suggest for you to try?
I can understand why you'd be feeling exhausted whilst dealing with everything that's going on at the moment, it's a lot. Are you able to get much rest? You mentioned that your medication makes you feel tired too, is that something you've let your GP know about?
