I saw my mother when I was her age and she also "thought" she was doing a good job of hiding her problems but I was so close to Mom that I KNEW at that age something was wrong
I became emotionally able to put up walls and not let ppl in and still do only certain pple can bring those walls down
DO NOT beat your self up over this please....as was said by Normal........ Keep the lines of comminication
open always let her know Mom is there as you are doing ......you cannot be held responsible entirely for this there always is some predisposition IMO
My daughter Cait is a teen is an "A " student .......perfectionist type A personality with OCD tendencies
YES this she got from me irregardless of how hard I tried to "Hide it "
I always talk to her about
everything I have family that think I let her talk to me about
things I should not
Thats my business not theirs
My doc had Cait on meds for SHORT term only 1 month weaned her off and we go to couselling now
I dont think it would be a good idea to give an 8 yr old meds but I am not a doc and I dont want her to be not looked after right by the doc
Please do take her to see one and talk for her and or let her talk for herself ........
I wish you all the best hun and I am truly sorry this is happening with your precious daughter .......
you want to talk add me to MSN okay its in profile
My Cait talks to her "Big Sis " Normal .........and this helps her out tremendously
Be well and again do not beat self up please
