Our expert says:
Sounds like you have done remarkably well in a very difficult situation, especially in earlier years when public attitudes were even less favourable or even aware of women's rights and needs, and when your ex should have been required by a maintenance court to pay to maintain his children.
It also sounds as though it would be a really good idea for your daughter to move out on her own as soon as she can afford to do so, if she continues to be so unappreciative of all your hard work for her.
If she isn't paying rent for the extra room, it's hardly fair for her to deny you the chance of using it.
I think it is important in her case and similar situations, to recognize that some of us have hormonal or chemical problems which may at times cause emotioonal challenges for us ( though in her case I'd be reluctant to assme all these complex chemical problems unless they have ben diagnosed after etailed assessment and investigation by an endocrinologist / medical specialist )- but that we as individuals are responsible for how we choose to behave when emotionally upset by whatever cause - physical / chemical problems are not a blanket excuse for behaving any way we please and ignoring the feelings and needs of others
