difficult child seems to be falling further away from us. I am not sure where to turn. She has a p'doctor appointment on the 6th, and therapist on the 12th. She does ok, but then falls asleep on the couch, and then can't/won't get up to do H.W. or shower. How do I convince people that she needs help, and that we are at a loss as to what to do for her? The last time we took her to the psychiatric hospital. er they just told us she was depressed, and that we should follow up with-p&tdocs. How bad does it need to be for her to get help? Does she have to attempt to hurt herself? There has to be something we can say or do for them to help. I am at such a loss. It is just tearing our family apart. easy child is constantly hiding in her room. I am so sad I want to help her but she just screams at us and tells us to leave her alone she just wants to sleep. And if you try to physically move her she becomes violent. Not sure how much more of this I can handle.
