    Lightbulb 12 yr old bi-polar daughter

    My daughter is 12 she was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD when she was 5. After ruling it out for 2 years.

    There is so much that has happened I won't even go into this all now. But know that since she was 3, I have been working with professionals to do everything in my power to help her grow up to live a life and be able to have a job, and friends.

    With that being said... And without writing a book here... this is what she posted on her Quotiv Account a couple of days ago, how I am not sure because she wasn't supposed to be on the internet.. because of past issues she has not earned her internet privledges back....

    why am disapproved?

    i feel like everything and everyone hates me. i fell in love, he got taken away, almost killed myself (two times) , failing school and at life entirely. I also get bullied basically everybody even my own mom. i just feel so rejected, like just a screw-up god himself made just to torture me

    My question is... how do I fix this, I want to hear from other people, we have been with the same therapist for along time... need some out of the box thinkers here. I love my daughter, and I don't want her to feel this way. If you have experience with bipolar than you know how hard they try to push people away... HELP!

    what she wrote could just as well have been written by any 12 year old girl.....with or without mental health issues......
    the pre-teen and teenage years are hard on MOST kids.....
    What would I do? I would probably ask her how she posted that when her privledges are taken away.....

    Re: 12 yr old bi-polar daughter

    So sorry for you & your daughter. My son was diax. with the same disorders as your daughter. He started drugs at 13. We went through therapists, many drug rehabs. and nothing worked. Finally his father and I went to tough love. It was a different approach and that was the only thing that helped. To make a very long story short, he is 26 and lives with his girl friend. Works in constr. Happy? I don't know. He stays out of trouble with the law and is drug free.
