You need to act fast!

Please seek the help of a psychiatrist ASAP. If she was diagnosed with ADD and you didn’t try medication and she is failing, it’s time to give it a shot. You have no other choice, at this point. Her brain is depleted of the chemicals needed to have normal executive functions. No diet, exercise, or cognitive behavioral therapy will do without meds.

This is an emergency, she is 15 and she can’t help herself. Act, now!
