I have a 19 yr old daughter who I adore. Like most young adults her age she does from time to time drive me crazy and of course she knows it all. I find myself struggling wondering if perhpas I love her too much. When she's hurting I feel her pain. I leterally take on her pain. I want to protect her and yet I know that is impossible and unhealthy. Sometimes I think I could be to invovled. I find I'm having a hard time coming up with the right words. Today she called in a complete anxiety mood. I also deal wiht anxiety so I truly felt her pian. I know she needs to behave as an adult, she can't have it both ways. I was feeling good til I spoke with my daughter and now I'm sad, worried, frustrated, and feeling very impatient. I always want to swoop in and fix things. Am I the only one who does and feels this way? Are there other mom's like me out there? I so desperately want to be the parent to my daughter that I didn't have. Please give me you opinion. Thank you.
