My sister was just like that FOR YEARS until recently (except for the eating part) and I think it was the adjustment from teen to adolescent...my sister was also nervous about confessing to my parents that she was a lesbian..so her identity made her feel vulnerable and kind of go into a shell... I would suggest taking her to a beautiful destination.(vacation..if your expenses can allow)..the beach, spa treatment, video games, something that you and her can do together that interests her...nurture your relationship.. Maybe your daughter feels that her peers aren't there for her. If that's the case I recommend [email protected] even have a myspace: myspace.com/peersunite and their website is PeersUnite.homestead.com. I paid 10 dollars for my sister to have that one on one connection with her peers and she felt that she could unleash her problems without being judged..it's a fantastic group of kids who help her..i read their responses..(maybe i shouldn't be sneaky but I paid for it!) and she is beginning to feel that not ALL of her peers feel the way she had thought. It's therapeutic but without the face to face interaction or medical mumbo jumbo that makes someone feel their a CASE!!! I hope that you and your daughter make some progress...
I love my life. ↑

|I think the best advice is to understand that the way she feels is the way she thinks, so what ever is going on in her mind she believes to be true not matter what.|
I think what she needs is postive voice, telling her how beautiful she is, how special she is, how wonderful she is CONSTANTLY and allow these words to be in place and that she thinks about them more and more each day.
Even leave positive affirmations around the place so she reads them and is in her mind everyday................remember it only takes 3 weeks to create a habbit.
Everyone is unique and special and fantastic in their own way, draw out her strengths and make sure she hears them daily : ) ↑

|Force your daughter to get help take her to a cycyatrist or maybe sit down with her with a big meal and some of her friends and have a friendly talk with her to let her know that shes not alone and she has som1 to lean on through the bad times. I also think that you should move her down to a low floor romove sharp objects, rope, string from her room so if she does become suicidal youll have a chance to talk to her. PLEASE ACT FAST!! ↑|

|Hi! Im 16 and last year i was depressed and tried to kill myself but luckly my sister rushed me to the hospital and had my stomach pumped of the sleeping pills. But my mom would not get my 'help' or anything. I dont know what started it but I was the total 'preppy' girl on the dance team and no one expected me to be the suicide case. But it did happen and i dropped out of dance. This year im not dealing with depression but i now have an eating disorder. I can't tell you anything that helped me get over it or an exact time i got over it or anything like that. I guess you could say i 'grew out of it' like my mom says or whatever. God had something to do with it and hopefully God can help me through my ED. ↑|

|Ok, well i'm only 15 and you probably think what i'm saying won't help anything because i'm so young. But it's worth a try. I've helped lots of my friends and family when they have been through times like this. |
You should sit down and talk to her and tell her how much you love her and you always will no matter what- that will help.
Tell her how you feel about her being in this situation and ask her what's going on. She's a teenager so she will most likely give you a nasty attitude. Just keep a soft voice and have patience.
Also, bringing her to a doctor won't help anything that is going on in her life and that won't help her become happy.
This might be from a boyfriend, school issues, people making fun of her, family, stress, drugs, or her friends might be changing her.
This might be a phase or something serious, but either way, you need to keep your patience with her and try to figure out and help in any way you can.
I really hope everything goes well, even though this is coming from a 15 year old that you probably think knows nothing and comes from a little town, but i know how it feels to watch someone you love feel so depressed and lonely. So again, i hope you take my advice and i hope everything goes well. ↑

I see this subject is 5 years old but never the less, I thought I would say something.
I am a teenager with depression myself. Although i've not attempted suicide in a few years, I think about it all of the time.
I was very serective about it, the first one, my parents didn't find out for a very long time. The second, I told my mom the next day and the third, I was in hospital.
When in hospital, I refused to see my parents and having to go home with them was awful.
My whole family has depression and my mom's is bad.
I am 16 and I have been depressed for over 6 or 7 years. I am on medication but to be honest, nothing takes away everything.
If you are suspicious of your child having depression, the need to self harm or commit suicide then try as hard as you can to watch out for the signs. You won't get an answer out of them by asking them directly what is wrong. But don't be overly sweet either, the worst thing for me when I am down is really happy people.
I guess I don't know exactly what you should do, but just know that unconditional love means a lot.
Hug your child and don't let go until they are ready, do special things such as bake their favourite cake or make them something that will mean something to them. They don't want materialistic things, they will secretly want you. Although they may not act like they want you there, they have never felt so lonely in their entire life.
Do what you can as a parent and just know that you are doing the best you can because at the end of the day, that's all you can do. Nobody prepares you for this kind of trauma, you just have to do what you feel is right.
I hope this helps somebody. ↑

|I suggest you talk to her. Ask or consult a doctor or let her attend therapeutic treatment program. Sending her to [url=http://www.teen-boarding-scho|

|Don't laugh. But, I give my depressed teen chocolate drinks daily to boost his serotonin level. Don't give him/her a candy bar. I actually by pure cocoa and mix it with honey and hot water. Do some research on the awesome affects of pure cocoa. It works. I am perimenopausal and I drink it also! ↑|

|Your daughter needs immediate help and attention. [url=http://www.teen-boarding-school.|
here[/url] for a reliable website offering special services for teens with serious problems. For sure they could provide for the needs of your daughter. My cousin has actually been on the same situation as your daughter and we immediately took him to this school for troubled teens. Now, he is gradually recovering and is becoming more and more sociable. I hope this one helps. I feel sad for the situation. But don't worry, just check out the website and you''ll find a lot of help there. ↑
