I'll just wait it out..again.But with each time (varying from 6 months to 8 months), I get tired of referencing,well this and that happened during your silent treatment, OR I don't even want to bother explaining anything because I don't know when the next silent treatment will start.
If I flick her off she'll say.. "Well I guess the last silent treatment wasn't painful enough.." And then she shuts down.
This most recent shut down occurred when I disagreed with her up and leaving to go live in Salt Lake City.
( she moved back home to NYC 8 months ago from VA so she has no overhead and can concentrate on finishing her online degree in psychology. She works 30hrs.so she can payoff her high credit card balances) Still not finished with her degree, she wants to move to Utah to ski and do outside activities.
I told her the expenses will be too high and it'll be like VA all over again. Money issues and I pay and pay because I do...
Her Dad ( I'm divorced) is a pediatrician but she doesn't like him either and hasn't talked to him in over a year.
He hasn't spoken to me in 27 yrs. So I know it's a learned behavior she has.
I just feel good letting this out on a digitized paper format.
Not sure if anyone has the answer, but I feel a bit better.
