My dd, jerk of a father has filled her head with such negativity. He calls her fat, ugly, tells her that her boyfriends should be paid well for going out with her and that she is dumb. So now this is how she looks at herself. She started cutting, she attempted suicide. Her depression was spiraling out of control. I took her to the doctor who diagnosed her with depression and prescribed her medication. Her father took her medication and refused to allow her to have it saying that she was just doing this for attention and that there was nothing wrong with her. She went to therapy, the therapist told her father that she was depressed. He still denied it. She started back to school and was being bullied THE FIRST DAY! I contacted the school, they set up a meeting. At the meeting my jerk of and ex (dd father) decided to put on a show of how rude he can be. He stood up threw things and lied, saying that he had no idea she was cutting and that he didn't know there was anything wrong with her. He yelled and stomped his feet like a three year old and stormed out. I talked to my dd that night, and she in no uncertain terms told me that if she had to live with her father or even visit him she would kill herself. That night she asked me to take her to the hospital, I asked why, and she said if daddy doesn't love me then why would anyone else...maybe I should just kill myself. I took her to the hospital! They assessed her and recommended inpatient intensive therapy. She is now on suicide watch in a mental health clinic an hour north of me. I get to speak to her for 10 minutes a day and can only visit her for an hour a day. I feel like I have failed her. I miss her so much and I can't stop crying. All of this, because of the insensitive words of a jerk.
