I posted this past summer due to issues with my 15 year old daughter. She has had issues with making threats at school (she's beyond obsessed with school shootings), severe depression, cutting, and suicidal thoughts. She also lies.all.of.the.time. About everything. She has been in an inpatient facility twice and all they did was adjust her medications and send us back to counseling. Her current diagnoses are ADHD and severe depression. We see a therapist every week. This past September I caught her trying to steal from Target. She had her purse and pockets FILLED with stuff. First she tried to tell me, you know because I was born last night , that my sister gave her the stuff. We got to the front of the store so I could checkout and she was like, "Sorry mom, I am trying to steal. I will go put everything back." Part of me actually HOPED she would get caught so maybe it would straighten her out but no one stopped us as we were leaving. I found out later that day that she had successfully stolen from the Dollar Tree earlier that day and from the gas station and grocery when she was out with husband a few nights prior to that. We actually had an appointment already scheduled the next day for her psychiatric evaluation but the Dr. didn't really say too much about her stealing. Just two weeks ago she got send to in-school suspension for taking $220 out of a student's backpack (she gave it back before getting caught but the student was still short $10). She claims all that was was a "joke" and it wouldn't happen again. I get a call from her at 7:15 this morning. She had already started the tears, the awful whining voice she does when she's been caught doing something, and she was informing me that the school would be calling me in a bit because she has been suspended. WTF. Yup, you guessed it- theft. She has been buying her breakfast at school and taking extras ALL YEAR LONG. She admitted this to me and the school. And then the texts started. She is going to hang herself, she's such an embarrassment to us, etc, etc, etc. I have not let her out of my sight in the 4 hours she has been home. The school will be pressing charges. They told husband she won't be going to JD, it's just probation. She doesn't seem to care at all.
