I have a daughter 27 and a son 23. Each has some challenges - my daughter is a single mom with stress, etc; and my son has severe OCD/anxiety and is recovering from a year of being incapacitated by it. (He now is back to work and has a good psychiatrist, but struggles with not using alcohol in social situations.)Each often expects me to have the "answer" for their problems and seems to place blame on me if I don't. My daughter criticizes me and says I don't have time for her. Being single, I work two jobs and am doing all I can. I feel stress and pressure from all this and also pain from her behavior in particular. I see a counselor and we talk about boundaries. Does anyone have an experience like this?
