Childhood Depression?
Sat, 04-28-2012 - 1:39am

I am looking for info on Childhood Depression. We have a 7 year old dd, whom in the last while has been having some very trying times. I have booked an appointment with our family doctor, but can't get in until May 22 and I have called our Employee & Family Assistance Program through work to try and get to talk to someone. She can go from 0 - 60 in a flash. Any little thing can set her off and its a complete melt down. She also has been saying some very upsetting things about dying and how no body loves her and all we do is fight. All of this is the farthest from the truth. We love her very much, and I have no idea what she mean about fighting. Very rarely do DH and I disagree and when we do its nothing not even raising voices, we have a great relationship. I just don't know what else to do, and would just like some info from others that may have gone through similar stuff. Thanks!
