Hi there @dbenn81 welcome to the community!
I'm glad you decided to open up about all of this - it sounds like you've needed to witness some big changes in your daughter - processing those changes and figuring out how to respond while taking care of the household is no easy task.
I'm not surprised that you hit your limit this morning, after all, parents are only human and I can see that you're doing all you can to navigate these transitions as best as you can. You're also one person and I can imagine the pressure you're feeling to smooth over conflicts and make sure everyone's needs are met. In the midst of everything, is there anyone you can lean on? Do you and your husband have support?
It sounds like your daughter is going through a lot internally and it must be hard to watch this unfold for her. I'm curious to ask if your daughter is connected to any support through school or mental health services? I'm also wondering if the two of you ever have the chance to get out and spend some time together? You mentioned that at times you still have your kind, compassionate happy young lady - do you find those times are a good opportunity to open conversations about how she's feeling?
Once again, thank you for trusting us with your worries. I'm going to send you an email to check in so keep an eye out for that.

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.
