I think my wife hates me. She keeps giving me an ultimatum to choose between my daughter or her, and keeps threatening divorce. I don't know how much more I can take of this. Already dealing with depression, and this just makes it get worse. She and my daughter are so much alike they just can't get along. Considered moving my daughter out (she's 18; home for the summer; will return to college in August). The house is a freakin' war zone, and an awful place for my two younger kids (14 and 7). Our marriage counselor is somewhat helpful, but my wife can't seem to understand the stress I'm under. I just want to crawl in a hole and die.

Wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home Iíll never see

It may sound absurd...but donít be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed...but wonít you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream
Itís not easy to be me

Your wife is hurt.

Your daughter is young and immature.

You have love and strength for them both.

You can share that in helpful ways and avoid the dysfunctional patterns of the past.

You may have to draw some firm boundaries. What r they?

We have to take responsibility for what we're not responsible for.
