My daughter is again in a foul mood and says that I want her unhappy. And until I accept that she won't talk to me. She does but she just wants me to accept that. The thing is I really don't think its true. I am so tired of her arguing with me. Today i woke her up too late and woke my son up. So she is in a bad mood. The following day she is in a bad mood because I woke her too early. She is 27 and I said you can set your own alarm!!

So my daughter worked locally for years and after 6 years she finally left. The job was making her miserable at the end, as the boss was very belittling. She travelled and found a place to work abroad, she stayed for a year at this job. The manager she had to talk to every day had untreated bipolar and become horrible to her. So she came home, and has been for the last 8 months. She works for us sometimes. But she is awful to live with. She argues with me every day. And I started arguing back. She has low self esteem and I don't know if she is depressed. But she won't do anything to help herself. Yesterday, I was doing some washing up and she poured some water on the floor rather then the sink. So I said don't do that. Well she started going off at me and I apologised, but she stayed in her bed all day. I could cope if she stayed in bed, but I feel bad so I go up and see her, and she always starts again, making herself angry. She feels she hasn't got anything to live for. She won't go to the Doctor, I said i would pay for counselling but she says it will make her feel troubled. It goes on and on. My husband and son try to help, but it never stops and they give up. She never gets cross with them only me. What can I do?
