My 14 yo DD was mad at the time at me for doing this. She didn't seem that concerned about her father. As the months passed, her behavior changed. She told me in late Feb. that she was depressed. Our family doctor put her on Zoloft and she seen a licensed psychologist in late March. She is still depressed and still not the same child she was. I'm so worried and confused.
Her father has been sick for approx. 4 years (diabetes, kidney disease - on dialysis, heart trouble, vision problems, etc.) I guess she just can't handle this anymore. She told me a few days ago that she is sick of living in the house with her sick father, she is sick of hearing him vomit, sick of hearing the walker slide across the floor, sick of me doing everything for him. She even asked me 'why don't you put him in a nursing home'? I can't believe my child is acting like this? I can't believe she honestly hates living with us. Do you think being 14 years old is playing into this behavior or the depression is making her act this way?
