difficult child/easy child (15 yr old dtr) had a meltdown last night. difficult child was being difficult child......though not as bad as he ha been in the past. She flipped on him. It took an hour or so before she let me talk to her, she was sobbing uncontrollably. She said she does not want to live here because of him. She is failing several classes for one because she had missed so much school from being sick and the other reason she said, which is true, is that she cannot do her homework here as gg is so loud and disruptive. Which is true. I held her and she sobbed and sobbed. I was concerned she was suicidal and asked her if she was. She said no. somehow it came up that she has been cutting. She showed me a few scars on her arms....she had told me they were cat scratches. Then she showed me her upper thighs. The right is a huge mass of cuts, and the left she has carved pain helps into her leg. I thanked her for telling me, and we talked about it. I told her I was going to call psychiatrist and therapist, and she agreed. She said she had a hard time telling people what is going on, and everyone asks what they can do to help and that really bothers her. I asked if out would help if I went to therapist with her, and she said no, yes, maybe. I told her it sounds like she wants me to go, and that if she did not want me on the room that she could kick me out. My heart is breaking for my little girl. I feel like I have failed her. I am so scared for her.
