My adult (27) daughter had a major breakdown a couple of months ago and as I live in another country, her friend called me to come and be with her. She did not want me there and wanted nothing to do with me. Since then she is seeing a Psychiatrist and is on meds and is at least speaking to me. However she now acts like nothing has happened and this bothers me. Being so far away from her makes it extremely difficult for me as I don't know what is going on. She said some very harsh and cruel things to me and I dont know if this was as a result of her illness or whether she actually meant them. I have broached this with her in an email but she simply did not answer. I want to help her, not judge her, and love her so very much. I do realise however that unless she talks to me we cannot work through her problems and if she has issues with me, then we do need to work through them. I want her to know I am here for her always but dont want to make her feel bad. What should I do? Right now I only email once a week and tell her silly stuff about my days etc and tell her that I love her.
