Hi all I am new to this forum. I have a gorgeous 17 year old daughter with depression. Her depression has been beginning to shift over last few months. She has a learning disability and since primary school has had to deal with constant bullying at school..She is kind and has had to deal with so much rejection. She does have a few friends but not a friend you can always count on. Today some one she think of as a friend had their 18th birthday and she was not invited .Lots of people she knows were invited including a person she would call a friend. she watched people she knew snapchatting the event. It was another blow after a long series of blows of trying to make friends and just do something that is fun. Because of her depression she was not going out very often and all of last year COVID stopped friendship making. Just wanting to support her on the tough journey of making friends and being accepted for who she is. It is so hard my heart breaks . As a parent I just want to make things better but my ability to fix this is limited. Suggestions and words of support welcome. I know so many other parents are in the same boat.
