She has been like this since 4 or 4.5, but it is getting worse so I am going to make her an appointment to be seen by the doctor when she gets her flu shot. She cries over everything. For example: the other day she asked if she can get her blocks from outside i said yes. DH asked nicely not yelling nothing, but asked what she was doing she started crying and wouldn't get them. Then the other day my DS and BIL went to gt something for dinner and took her they asked if she wanted hamburg or chicken nuggets she said hamburg then they asked if she wanted fries or apples they asked 3 times she didn't answer so they said apples and then she started crying because she wanted fries. You can't joke around with her what so ever or she will cry. You play around with her she cries. You can't say anything to her without her crying either. The other day she gets out of the van crying and we don't know why she was crying. CONT

I think it's genetic, too. My dad has severe clinical depression and so do I. There is a history of mental illness on my dad's side (my one cousin is schizophrenic and I believe my uncle was bi-polar). I worry about my kids.
I know I've been depressed since I was at least 8 or 9. At the time I didn't know what was wrong with me just that I felt "bad" all the time and didn't seem like the other kids I played with. By 12 I understood what was wrong with me but my parents never did anything to help me because they thought it was just hormones. I suffered for 20+ years dealing with it on my own. I would definitely seek help for her.
