Is my daughter ok? I inevitability some serious warning.?
Im worried my daughter is becoming ill. She lays in bed all time not wanting to eat or see anyone. It started when she got her exam results and didn't do as well as she have hoped. she says she feels like here is no point trying in life anymore as it gets you know where on earth. She is getting thin and weak. I have asked my doctor but adjectives he says is that its a phase. I know its not her 'time of the month' and do phases go on for 3+ weeks?
Which exams own gone badly do you mind adding? There is ALWAYS a second chance within education, and always a different path to clutch if one has let you down.
She needs to realise this (be told by someone she trusts except you perhaps, harsh but it's probably the only road she will believe it).
If she was planning to go to college/university and can't this year, then she can plan to budge next year, take the resits early and spend a few months doing some soul penetrating. Time away from education can be brilliant for knowing/finding what you really want to do.
Find a way to get through to her that life span doesn't start and stop with education, and you can tell her this is coming from a Teacher, such as I am.
What else own I to add?
"as it gets you know where"she says
Bring home adjectives her friends and each tell them what all other talent she has and how she can do so many things in time, Bring in a stream of people who after having face such a situation in life have overcome them and are very soon well settled and each tell her what ever they want to promote her.
If it doesn't leave any impression and it has not help her into taking regular meals and jumping back into go, you have to take her to a doctor who can set it right.
But you can do it ,taking her
to a doctor
who can set it right,
right now, in need wasting time..
Act immediately. Source(s): Common Sense tells that depression defies any counsel or suggested solutions...
nouns like a touch of depression,she has the classic signs,staying in bed,not eating/wanting to see any1 and she think theres no point carrying on,take her to another doctor for a second opinion
Firstly I would talk to her. Ask her why she is doing what she is doing. You need to reinforce in her that getting a unpromising exam result doesnt matter. The result is just how she went on in the future, and if need be, there are always ways to get hold of around needing a particular score.
If after discussion to her, she doesnt seem to be getting any better, then i would suggest that you seek the abet of a councellor/psycologist/psychiatrist who can help her work through her issues. I would also say this definetly seems to not be a phase if she is letting it affect her strength. Source(s): Common sense. Being a teenager, who sometimes can't meet her own expectations
she sounds depressed to me i know somebody who was very deperssed and he stopped consumption just let her know that life isint adjectives about getting great results just be there for her explanation she is obviously upset about her results
You don't say how antediluvian your daughter is but I am guessing she is a teenager. Mood swings are common at this stage of life and it may aid for her to have someone she can talk to. If she doesn't feel competent to talk to you (often the case with mums and daughters) later see if she will confide in another family member or a friend.
However, if as you read aloud, she is lethargic and getting thin and weak, she does inevitability professional help. Go back to your doctor and insist on a thorough examination and a referral to a counsellor or psychologist.
powerfully i have been through taking exams recently and they are so stressful and if she have been putting pressure on herself to do well and now she hasn't done as capably as she wanted she feels like it be a waste of time. she may have done really well but sometimes contained by your own eyes you haven't so she is feeling down about it. i think she wishes to speak to the doctor about her not eating though because if she is loosing weight its not apt and even though the doctor says its a phase its quite a big one and she is making herself ill so it can't be unobserved. exams are stressful times and she is just feeling very down because she is thinking she have done all that work for nothing in her mind she requests to. i remember when i did my first exam a few months back i was so nervous but i feel ill because i was putting pressure on myself to well when i didn't have need of to so your daughter needs to know that its not that bad and she has still done really resourcefully because she has got through she needs to cram not to be so tough on herself and help her to slowly build up her confidence and just be there for her it other helps to have your mum around.
It sounds close to your daughter is very depressed. She might not want to open up to you and tell you what's wrong so professional comfort may be needed in the case. Try to be encouraging about her adjectives, tell her it's not the end of the world she didn't get the exam results she be hoping for as there's plenty of other avenues for her to go down. Good luck, I hope your daughter starts feeling better soon.
Sound like she's depressed, but it could be something more. You should take her to the doctor again. Try another doctor if yours wont listen. Try writing down all her symptoms previously you go so you don't forget anything. If this doesn't help, get her out exercising and try st johns wort (from a healh food shop or chemist).
Oh hun, you might want to drag her to the doctor ( a different one, since that one didn't give the impression of being to care ), she might have acute depression problems! You should really take her to see someone and try to amount out what's up. No one should act like that for that long without at hand being some kind of mental issue (not saying she's crazy ).
Your daughter sounds depressed. Its not usual for phases to be this extreme and to last 3 weeks.
Take her to the doctor - try a different one than the one you spoke to.
what exam results? try update her that God is not look at them . he still love her and it will get better it is some you should pray about. if she is not eating try going to a place be she like to eat. but ask her were she would similar to to go.get two of her friends to go next to.
She sounds depressed to me and I think some counselling for a short while may help. Your doctor should be able to bequeath you some info....
She obviously take things really seriously and feels like she's a failure, you should try taking her to see somebody who can explain to her that her enthusiasm is not over because of some test results, if she can understand that, she'll get better.
She didn't do as well as she hoped, or didn't do as well as YOU hoped?
People's success is not newly measured by exams, they are measured against the expectations of those around them.
Did she not do as well as you expected or her friends did? Then she needs support to say it doesn't event (because compared to her health, her exams are irrelevant). Exams can be resit, soon or in the future. Pick out the ones she did do in good health at and praise her for these.
Support, support, support, this is what she needs to get over it. Be positive, love her unconditionally and help her near her options.
Her friends might be celebrating their success; possibly she needs some kind of celebration/treat too? Make sure you do everything you can to make her have a feeling better.
probably u shd ask any one of her friends to yak to her....and make her feel better...she is depressed...i know it...because i act indistinguishable way many times...even not eating my food...friends do really support..they help her to forget about what she is thinking..all the time...
She really should see someone.
I'm 18 and was once in the same state.
Luckily, after months of horrid states, I pulled myself up and kicked myself surrounded by the butt, self-improved while also going to a counsellor every 2 weeks to help stay back on track. Source(s): Self-Experience
It will just thieve some time to get used the fact she didn't do as well as hoped. Everyone go through periods of disappointment from time to time & it is a blow to the system. She'll be fine soon enough.
shes probley got severe depression tell the doctor that your really worried and wha you wrote above
your daughter is depressed you entail to get her some therapy right away this could lead to other disorders and dont listen to that doctor return with her some help
Depression most unquestionably but it may be transient and will pass. Think seriously and try other things before you resort to anti depressants..otherwise she could be stuck on them for life. Talking psychiatric help may help her more given her age and lack of trauma (assuming she has not have any real trauma in her life?). Source(s): psychotherapist
She sounds depressed, take her to the doctor to seize a referral or diagnosis.
Seriously, If your doctor gave you an answer close to this after THREE weeks. YOU need a NEW Doctor. Once her health is affected as it is beside her losing weight she has some issues. But I would start by sitting down with her and explaining that not getting the grades she expected right or not, IS NOT the end of the world. That she can use this as reasoning to do better next year. Do NOT speak any negatives to her NOT at this point surrounded by time. She does need someone to speak with. As in a professional. But this is a start. Good luck and I do craving her as well as you the best in this matter.
She is most seriously depressed. She needs professional counseling!
It sounds like she is depressed ( I take like that a lot). I know how she feels sometimes when you try so hard for something and it doesn't work out you can't really see where on earth your life is going or what you can do next.
Its kind of difficult, when my parents try to minister to me out by 'suggesting' things it makes me feel worse because its like they are pressurising me into doing something or resembling they don't trust me to do something on your own. What usually helps me snap out of it is people just going on as within normal happy selves like sometimes my mam as a surprise will move about to the bakery and get me a random cake or ginger bread man and bring it up to my room and not really fuss over me but go - 'o I get you this' then just leaves me too it. Eventually I return to half everyday and start to put my life back in order- and the more I know where on earth I am going the more confident and happier I get.
I hope that she gets better soon.
why are you on yahoo,when you should be taking her to a doctor.
Take her on a holiday she seems resembling she works hard and doesn't seem to get anywhere.
little holiday would backing her relax and think of a fresh start.
but ask if there is bulling at school or something else upsetting her?
But basically tell her it was one little test and in that are bigger and more rewarding goals out there.
Every one fails something within their life at a Point just learn from your mistake close to they all say.
i hope she gets better.
Oh wow this is bad. This situation really make me sad, and feel for you and your daughter. There is definitely something wrong. I can get because last year I got my exam results back and they werent as correct as I thought. What year is she? Is it her last year at school? If not, tell her that it doesn't event what grades she got. She still has another year (or few years) left of arts school to do good. And tell her it doesn't matter to you what results she get because you love her anyway and you know she's capable of whatever she wants to be. Don't agree to her stay in bed and get weak. First be loving a really worthy about it, but then begin to become a forceful close to telling her you're worried and she can't stay in bed and do this. It's obviously affecting you, update her that. Don't put pressure on her though, that could make it worse. Also, put yourself in her shoes. If you felt that method whats one thing you would really want? And maybe talk to her and see if there's something more to it, something she's not unfolding you.
Im so sorry, I really wish I could help more. I hope I was encouraging :)
