i have a 13 year old daughter who since the age of 3 (she was sexually abused by her real dad who went to jail and lost his parental rights) has had problems every since with mental health issues. She has had every service you could ever think of and loving parents and family that have run out of ideas and are just plain sad,mad,scared,hurt,frustrated,feel hopeless,ect. We have thought for years as she was getting help that it was helping until the next thing came up. As I am sitting here typing this she is at a shelter. Her case manager and pychiatrist would like me to place her in residental treatment for her to get the help she needs since she can't seem to be able to funtion at school or home anymore. I feel like someone ripped out half my heart and took it away and it will never be returned to me until she gets better. I know that I never will get better unless she does. I guess my question to all of you is how to let them take and place her and be able to ever forgive myself as I'm the one who has to decide.There is soooo much to the story but I would have to write a book to try to give you the whole picture.I came on this site because I feel so damn lonely in feeling like I'm the only one that has this problem or feelings. I really hope to hear from you as you just might be a part of saving my mind.
