Hi, my name is Julie and I am the single mother of a 20 year old daughter who's story is similar to that of waivering faith. My daughter graduated high school, went a year to a world renowned local university, did fantastic in her first semester and then almost failed her second semester. She wanted to live on campus and then was calling me daily to pick her up and drive her back in the morning. Since school was out, and we're talking two plus years ago, she has done nothing. She claims she is depressed but refuses therapy. She has been on several antidepressants and refuses to try another. She finally got her driver's license last April and refuses to drive, get a job, go back to school, help around the house or do much of anything. She sleeps most of the day and is up most of the night texting her friends and playing games online, skyping, etc.. I know she has experimented with alcohol and marijuana, but I don't think she is "abusing" them; she has no money other than the money I give her. I know she is still a virgin so she's not out selling herself. She has a nice group of friends which she goes running to when they want to go out. We do live in outside the city so her friends have to always pick her up and drop her off. Sometimes I question if she is just lazy and yanking my chain. Everyone I've talked to about her tells me to kick her out of the house, but I've done this twice to no avail. I told her she has to leave this morning after an incident which is why I went online and found this site. I've never done anything like this before, but I am at the end of my rope and out of ideas. I am not naive, I am a high school math teacher and deal with kids and their issues all the time, but for some reason I cannot seem to help my own daughter. We have had some trauma in the past.
