    Thanks Stefanie, for posting on this important topic. When family or friends are in the position of having to care for someone with whom there is a conflicted relationship, or a history of traumatic abuse, I believe it’s important for care givers to reach out for additional emotional support.

    There may be issues of unresolved anger, grief, fear, and resentment that can be worked out with help from professional counselors or psychotherapists. Past hurts are often re-activated and intensified when a new crisis in such relationships emerges. Remember that you don’t have to deal with these complicated feelings alone!
