It is a gift to have come upon this site and read about the love and hope and pain we share.
I am feeling overcome with grief of not knowing how to help my daughter.
She is 23 and has struggled since an early teen and your stories are ours.
She is a new mom and baby's daddy has been overwhelmed with her anger ,unpredictable mood swings, energy highs and lows. He is worried about her safely and the baby's. She is on antidepressants for postnatal depression, and we know this is not the answer. She has been to psychologists as a teen, who only told us that she had been experiencing normal teen girl stuff.
Now she is adamant about not talking with anyone else. She says that is willing to seek help but does not follow through.I am hopeful that as a family we can help her.
