    Hi Mom,

    First off (((((((((((((((BIG HUGS))))))))))))))))), you sound exhausted and defeated.

    I understand your frustration - raising a child with a mood disorder can be very, very difficult and drain our own mental health bank.

    I can send you some resource links if you write back with your state and city. Sometimes it is not easy to find resources, depending on what part of the Country you live in. You may need to drive a bit, or seriously consider moving to an area with better accessible mental health care for your daughter.

    It sounds like you both need some relief - and fast.

    I'm sorry life is so tough right now. I hope you have some support of friends.

    Please write back, so I can pass along some helpful information to you.

    Thank you!!

    Good morning, I live on Hilton Head Island, SC. Shocking, isn't it? All these well to do people around here, yet, nowhere to go for help! Now, I will say, before she hit 18yrs. old, I had the upper hand, to a point! She has always been extremely violent, and all I know is, if my son was not alive, neither would I be! Year's ago, I had her in a Hospital, for The Mentally challenged, but, she managed to get herself attacked, by another patient, and they released her, due to the fact, she told them WE were going to sue them in court! Everything else, has been Dr. to Dr., med to med., then she got pregnant @ 17yrs.! It just kept gtowing & growing, until I ended up in the hospital! I absolutely appreciate your offer for help. S.Carolina is unlike any State, I have ever heard of! But, any info, may just be, WHAT I need. Thank-you so much for your very thoughtful offer & warming thoughts....
