I have a 12.5 year old with ADD / ODD and some LD... it seems to be turning into personality as well

She is the youngest of 4... we just lost my 20 year old.. and Im beside myself with dealing with her twin in the sense of behavior only worse... Im terrified she will end up ending her life in a similar way my 20 year old did.

My appologies for the short exp
by: Sheri Lee

She is the youngest of 4... not a twin... however her behaviors and attitudes and so much more are very very close to my 20 year old daughter who just recently committed suicide.. .. yes she is dealing with the grief and the loss of our Lelah.. however a lot of these behaviors are not new.. I so wish I knew then what I know now... as Im sure we all do .. however I am really in disbelief that the genes of the father do not play a role I verily believe they do play a very important role.. and I also believe we have the technology in todays day and age to reverse and heal most of what ails us if not all... sorry for sounding all over the place I am still on stress leave.. and have found that if I can accomplish one task a day I feel like I have done something

Sherri Lee: could you give a little more detail on the diagnosis that your 12.5 year old has... and you stated she's a twin?? is that correct? You gave a lot of serious information in a very short space! More details would help to perhaps suggest resources. Who is helping you now? School? Physicians? Counselors?
