My 21-1/2 year daughter, when stressed, tends to bully specifically me. She seems to blame me for her problems/worries. How do I handle this?

Temper Tantrums by Grown Daughter
by: Anonymous

I have the same problem. Some friends have told me she has an undiagnosed condition, perhaps even Asperger's. My daughter is in her late 20s, still lives at home, has no friends, and only works at a part-time home-based job. She has many fears and anxieties, but refuses to see a doctor, and obviously, she is too big for me to pick up and take to the doctor. She blows up at me all the time, i.e., if I have walked too closely to her while I am walking through the house, or if I offer her some food and she is not ready for it yet. Her yelling spells are several minutes long, but then she calms down and is pleasant. She is essentially like a mine field. People say to just throw her out, but obviously, that is not a reasonable solution. My only hope is that God will answer my prayers and heal her. Otherwise, I may just leave some day and not come back. I work three jobs and can't cope with coming home to someone who just wants to yell. As for you, I would say you may have to do the same thing - just leave, and leave a note behind explaining why. That is my only answer. I am sorry for you, because I feel your pain.
