My fourteen year old daughter is a perfect student, and has been making good close friends this year. She's had what I thought a very good year so far, although I could tell she's been retreating into her schoolwork and practicing. She came home from a weekend camp today and was very upset. She feels numb, and is jealous that her friends have "normal" lives. She feels insecure about her family life, and misses a close friend she once had, who she talks to but infrequently now. She also has had a problem with acne, and I can't afford the medical bills to take her to a dermatologist. She'll be 15 soon and feels left out becuase she has never had a boyfriend. I'm not too worried because she is now talking about her feelings, but should I be concerned enough to find her a therapist?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
