I am struggling majorly to be able to help my daughter, we initially attended docs as she was feeling really down and they diagniosed depression and gave her meds straight away ( explained that mey get worse before getting better) she took for approx 1 week and felt 100 times worse having suicidal thoughts and immediately stopped. She now refuses to go back to docs but has seen school counsellor a couple of times with devastating effects and now refuses to do this. She wont talk to me at all in all honestly I dont know how to deal with this, I have tried to persuade her to go docs and tried to talk to her but she feels i am part of problem I tried softly softly thinking this would help I ve tried treating the same as I do the other kids but she gets angry and destructive and still doc had no advice. I try to talk to her she says Im just having a go at her says that I am unsupportive and that she hates me!!! I have attended meets at shool with her i am in constant talks with them and they are now worried as she had meet with deputy head and broke down in tears saying she wants to kill herself . she is struggling with attendance and doing school work now and really doesnt care about anything or any one. My doctor wont/cant help as they say due to her age she must take herself in Im waiting for school to call back so I can get them to refer her to Camhs and they say i need a referal but im worried that unless she is prepared to make visits that I will get no where. There is so much more I can say re the situation but feel that this is enough to get started
