Back in April of this year I got a call from the school nurse telling me that my daughter is being transferred to the hospital from overdosing on 30 sudafeds and 30 tylenol. I dropped her off at school and everyhting seemed normal and I couldn't understand what was going on. My daughter is 15. When I got to the hospital she said that she didn't want to see me because it was my fault that this happened. I do tend to be overprotective but I was sooo mad that she attempted suicide.The counselor told me she is depressed and was in a psychiatric hospital for 3 days. Now she is better and seeing a therapist. Has your child ever attempted this? Is she just being a "bratty" teen? She was forbidden to come and finish the school year and the school counselor has been HOUNDING us because of this. She wants to know what she talks about to her therapist. She is so annoying and not helpful at all and thinks she is a doctor instead!Answer Question

I've never had any experience with this but I do think that she's not just being a "bratty" teen. She attempted suicide!! That's very serious! I have had friends in high school who committed suicide so I know it's something more than just being ''bratty". As far as the school counselor goes, it's none of her business what your daughter talks to with her therapist. That's confidential!! The counselor needs to know her place!
Good Luck and you and your daughter will be in my thoughts.
