I should have started to ask all of you for help one year ago. I kept on thinking it was typical teen rebellion. She had always been a good eater, then suddenly started to complain about every meal I made. She wants her protein on one plate and her veggies on another. The veggies must be raw and cannot touch. I was freaking while Jena was going through her daughter's food issues. I didn't want to precipitate anorexia/bulimia. She has spent the last year in her room, on the phone and computer, wants nothing to do with us. We planned on going to France this Summer to visit what is left of my family. She had a major fit, refused to go, threatening to make our lives miserable. She cannot live without constant contact with her friends. She had to go to phospital after she slashed her arm, requiring ten stitches. She came back with foul language, learned at the group meetings, was reprimanded by a teacher for saying something was s****y. That is new behavior. She told her dad that when she has reached the age of 18 she will not see either of us except for the day she gets to put us in a nursing home. This morning, her ever vigilant brother saw her getting in a car with three boys instead of taking the bus. The bus driver reported that she has not taken the bus on a regular basis of late. She will be 15 in June. She suspects that we know and started to make up all kinds of stories about being at a different bus stop "because she knew a mom she wanted to talk to". I am heartbroken and completely lost. I have no idea what rights parents have these days. We have emailed her therapist with this info. I have little hope because of past experiences with difficult child 2 and his therapist who was more interested in befriending him than helping our family. This is so sad.
