Overbearing parents

Hi! @contentandwell I am 17 years old. I love my father and understand how much he cares about me and wants me better. I have been doing what is being recommended, I’ve been following the diet and drinking enough liquids. I feel sick and I force myself to eat despite not feeling well. I deal with nausea, so it makes eating a lot difficult. But I want to emphasize that I am trying. I am someone who doesn’t like feeling controlled, having this aspect of my life controlled adds a lot of stress causing me to feel sicker.

@karina77 I think very few people like to feel like someone is trying to control them. I guess you just need him to see you doing all that you can do to follow the guidelines that your doctor has recommended. Hopefully when he sees that he will feel less concerned. My son and daughter are in their 30s now but as a parent, you never stop worrying about your kids.
I tend to not be a controlling type, vs my husband who is, so that was not a problem for me. I am just a worrying type. :-/ If one of my kids had had a health problem as teens though that may have been different.
