13 yr old daughter is cutting herself
As an extremely worried Mom, I don't know where else to turn.
I've recently found out from my daughters school counselor that she has been cutting her arms and has alot of anxiety.
We are very involved parents and we didn't even know this has been going on for over 3 months. I feel so sad and ashamed that I did not know the pain my daughter has been going through.
I opened her computer this morning after she went to school to see what I could find. She wrote a lengthy letter in a word document that made me cry.
She often feels like hurting herself and mentioned hanging at one point. I almost lost my breath.
Where do I go from here? I don't want to lose my precious child.
Have any of you gone through this or have a teen daughter who has triumphed over this emotional age and come out feeling whole again?
Thank you for listening.
