Hello, My 16 year old daughter is beautiful and smart in school, with a wonderful personality. She is very social and has wonderful self esteem about herself. She wants to be a Doctor and is going to persue her RN Nursing Lic. first. However, I've notice that she is talking to herself alot and she's been sleepwalking (not often-3 times a year). Mental illness runs in our family (You could not look at my family and say "there is a bunch of crazy folks, we look normal and all have professional careers and both my parents have college degress, father-PhD and my mother has her BS). My mother is manic depression/skicrisike (under her medacation she is one of the most beautiful women in the world, and I take prozac (for severve mood swing). When I was growing up I had a 4 day memory loss in 12th grade but because of the genaration that my parents grow up in we never talk about it becuase it was to close to some of my mothers behaviors before she started taking meds. So I would like to help my daughter if I can at a early age so that she doesn't have to go through the anxieties I have. My husband told me that since I've been taking meds I do not talk to myself and I am so much cailmer. I just want to get my daughter help early if she needs it. If not I'll leave it alone.
Talk to your daughter about your worries. Tell her to seek professional help if she experiences emotional problems. Also tell her how much better you feel after getting help. Accept if your daughter wants to solve her problems in another way than you do.
