Hi my 12 he daughter started high school this yr. But recently she has been saying she doesn't want to be here any more. She has a great group of friends and is seeing the school counselor. She is generally a very happy carefree girl . She has had trauma in her younger yrs around age 8 and due to this no longer see her father. There is only me and her in our family. Last night she had read out a speech to me for school she was so excited and pleased with it. Then 3 mins later comes to me and ask if lead poisoning can kill her. I ask why and that there are different lect.leads.wirhout going into detail. She then showed me her leg which had marks from a lead pencil . I then asked y are you doing that. She replied saying because I want too. That night I went through her phone and saw she has sent a text to her friend saying she is not coping and wanting to leave and not be here any more. When I ask her why she feel this way she say be a use all my friends get what they want and I don't. I try and explain that at the moment I can only get you things you need not want like giving her money to go shopping ect. She has recently joined a soccer team and loves it as I was hoping doing what she loves and being with friends would help her be more positive about life. So any suggestions would be great. Thank you.
