my daughter and i have been estranged for over a year. she lied to me about something she did. she knows she lied and knows i know the truth. i sent an email telling her i'd like to work on our problem. she sent one back saying she would too, but it's too stressful for her when i don't trust what she says to be the truth. she went on to say it's easier for her to stay away b/c the stress of me not trusting her brings on medical conditions, so it's better for her to not be involved with me. ????

Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum. From the description of the symptoms, it seems your daughter is suffering from anxiety neurosis and at this stage, it is not advisable to leave her alone.

Talk to your daughter and her father openly about any apprehensions that she may be having and consult a counselor for any relationship issues. Talking and discussing problems with each other will resolve the issue. Although she lied to you, it is better to forget it at the moment as she is in a vulnerable condition and needs your emotional support.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
