I have 3 lovely daughters, and I am lucky we have always enjoyed a happy and close relationship.
A few weeks ago I invited my youngest daughter to do a 10 mile charity walk with me to raise funds for a cause dear to my heart and we completed the walk yesterday. However At the start of the walk it was clear to me that she was not up to it, as she had suffered a knee injury some weeks previously and it was causing her a problem that morning. I tried to put her off and said the rest of our group would do the walk in her honour, and said she should drive to the finish point and meet us there in approx 4 hours. She refused to stand down and after the first 3 miles was clearly in difficulty. Nonetheless she powered through to the end(we took it as gently as we could). She was very chatty with the rest of the group but everytime I asked how she was doing she was very short with me.
During the ride home and said I would pop over today to see how she is (her husband is away for work until next week). She very sternly told me that was unnecessary and she would be fine. I mentioned it again as I dropped her off and again she said she didn't want me to drop by. I am concerned so I have asked her best friend to look in on her today. So I know she will be okay.
Now here's the thing, I am, quite selfishly I realise, anxious why she doesn't want my company, as she has seemed distant of late.
I have a dear friend who is estranged from her daughter and feel the anguish it causes her. I am not an emotionally strong person and getting quite anxious now.
