Hello, I am new to HealingWell and I come here in search of help for my 24 year old daughter. She was born with mild Oral Facial Digital Syndrome, which in her case caused slight cosmetic issues, and some learning disabilities. She is 24 but has the maturaty of about a 14 year old. At 18 she was ended up with accute renal failure and within a year had a new kidney. In the past couple years, she has been diagnosed bipolar, and has lived in a group home and now an appartment of her own. Moving out of our home is in an attempt for her to learn to take care of herself if and when myself and husband are no longer around. She does have a caseworker, and is in a once a week group program led by girls her age. And she has a councilor that sees her maybe once a month if that. She doesn't fit in well with people her own age. She wants to be normal and have a normal life but it just isn't happening. My husband and I have recently started an art coop and we try to include her in that aas much as possible, but she is getting to where she doesn't want to do that much either. She is terribly depressed and the worse it gets the worse she gets. She sleeps all the time, her place is a horrible mess, and she rarely takes a bath anymore. Her only sibling is a much older step-brother who lives 1000 miles away. She is slipping deeper into depression - its breaking my heart and I just don't know what to do for her. Thought I'd check here for any advise or support I can get.
Any response is appreciated.
