Today I turned the computer on and the last person on was my daughter. Her online profile was on there and I read it. I probably shouldn't hve invaded her privace (she's 12 almost13). I have always tried to respect her privacy. I started reading and she had written in there that she was cutting herself again (I didn't know she was at all and I've checked because she had a friend that she was spending alot of time with that was hospitalized for cutting, suicide attempt) So, I kept on reading. Her screenname was supersexysammi and she said she smoked, drank and cut herself and self-harmed in othr ways when she felt depressed. She had written that she cut again recently when her bf broke up with her. I am beside myself. She had been talking to 20 year and down guys. I thought I had A tight grip on what was going on with her. It mkes me think if she is doing all this what else has she done that I don't know about. She came to me a few months ago and told me that she thought she might be bisexual. Well, I asked her blunt questions about being intimate with another woman and she determined that maybe she was just curious because she called the sexual aspect of being intimate with another girl "Gross, I'd never do that,yuck!" so, I told her I thought she was just curious because she had a couple of friends recently "come out." To be honest I think they are a bunch of confused teenage girls who think it's cool and trendy right now to be bi I guess. The problem is I know she is probably lying about the cutting because I see her without her clothing all the time and I look too. I've never seen anything ever. I think she is saying these things for the shock value and because she for some reason thinks its cool to have these issues because her friends do and is looking for attention. I don't know really how to deal with this, any suggestions? She sees a counselor already, again I think she is attention-seeking. I don't know. Sometimes I think she maybe really wants to be like me so much,she thinks she needs to be just like me.... I would never wish that on anyone. She obviously has something wrong though just to be thinking like this. Any help or advice out there? Sorry so long...thanks if you read.
