My 27 yr.old daughter has been battling depression for over ten years, with a suicide attempt at 18 yrs old. She has tried many treatment modalities and medications over passed years and nothing seems effective or lasting because she always comes back to the lowest, saddest state. She refuses to take medication, see a therapist or enter a hospital. She says nothing has worked and I'm inclined to agree with her.Nothing has. She tired of trying. It is difficult to see her suffer everyday.
She has promised me she would not attempt again without reaching out to me first. I no longer know how to help her. I don't know if its fair for me to want her stay alive but I can imagine life without her.
What do I do? Where else can I turn for help?
