Hi @Marshmallow, I'm very sorry to hear that you're having a difficult time with your daughter. It sounds exhausting constantly trying to help and support her, particularly when she's challenging you at every turn. You are not a terrible parent for struggling and feeling overwhelmed by this, I can see that you have a lot of love for your daughter and are simply doing the best that you can under some difficult circumstances. What are you doing to look after yourself at the moment?
I'm also sorry to hear that the psychologist wasn't able to provide much advice. It's really disappointing after you spent so much money on an assessment not to find any closure or practical guidance. How are you feeling about their recommendation for your daughter to try some counselling sessions?
Sending all of my best to you during this difficult time. You are not alone

Thanks for getting back to us, I'm really glad to hear that you have some activities you enjoy to take time out for yourself.
It would be very confusing to know what to do next given the outcome of the assessment, but I want to assure you that seeing a psychologist is incredibly normal and people see them for a variety of reasons. I hope you don't feel like you don't deserve the support, because truly everyone does
I also understand you are feeling really at a loss and wondering what you will do if the things you try do not seem to work, are there other options you are thinking about for support at the moment?
