My 17 yo is constantly angry.

I'm at a loss at this point. She argues the second she gets up until I find myself hiding in my room to avoid interaction with her. I don't know what to do anymore. When I confront her she blames me says I'm a horrible mother and never give her any attention. Someone help please!

She's a teenager. Hide in your room until she turns into a human again!

Try to spend more time with her doing something you both enjoy. When my daughter is particularly irritating I take her to the movies, or do something with just the two of us. Hormones are probably the big problem here, but it feels good to feel like someone is listening to you. If she's complaining that you aren't paying enough attention to her, then try to pay more attention. Also, don't let her get away with being disrespectful. She needs to put effort in to acting human if your time together is going to be pleasant.
