It would be so wonderful if you all could send out some much needed positive vibes to my daughter Nicole. She had a such a bad meltdown on Sat night I had to take her the ER bcuz she was afraid of herself. She was saying she didn’t want to live anymore. So many things just came to a head for her. it’s her senior year in HS and she’s worried about college apps and college essays as well as her classes at school. Not to mention she has a job and does other school activities. And lastly, her older sister is leaving for college in 2 weeks and her boyfriend of 2 years went to college 4 weeks ago. there have been lots of demands put on her (not by me or any of our family) from people and she just broke. So, since she had thoughts of suicide and a possible plan (but did not carry anything out) the ER put her on suicide watch (with me there the whole time even) and then she was transfered by ambulance to a pediatric behavioral health clinic an hour away from our house. She gets to call us and I’ve visited her. She’s very low risk as it was just a mental breakdown of sorts but they’re making her stay 72hours. I’m hoping she comes home with me tomorrow. She’s being brave in the fact that she came to me in the first place. All I want for her now is to heal and just be a teenager. I’m so sad for her and I feel as a mom I’ve failed her.
