Hi Everyone!

My step daughter moved in with us when she was 16. She is a troubled teen but is now 18 years old. She is an A student but suffered a lot of trauma from when she lived with her birth mom where she was both beaten and raped. She is also a cutter and is sexually active. Developmentally speaking, she bounces mental from age 10 thru 16. She sees a psychiatrist and a social worker on a regular basis. Her birth parents do not get along and do not speak to each other.

I am soooo mentally tired!
