  • I have a 17 year old daughter who has been like this for her entire life. She is anti social, depressed, has panic attacks! It is exhausting, and you do feel like you are the only one. I still feel that way. This past year has been one of the worst years of my life with my daughter. She doesn't do anything that other teenagers like to do . She wont drive, go to parties, movies vary rarely, swim in summer I mean the list goes on. We did put her into the hospital for a few days last month. Not sure that helped her. I definetly feel you pain you are not alone. I hope thiongs get better for you, and your child. Is residency like a hospital?
