My daughter is 9 1/2 and highly sensitive. I don't just mean emotionally (check out hsperson.com) We've been aware of this since she was little and have tried to not only accomodate what she can't help but also aide her in her ability to cope and handle things. However, her emotional roller coaster has seemed to increase. I don't know if it's her age, the onset of puberty, or what but she cries over the smallest and stupidest things. I don't know how to get her to understand that she makes a small situation HUGE by her incesent over-reacting. How can I help her get a grip??? Her episodes drive her father and I crazy which just makes things worse, of course, and I am trying to stay calm and be patient there is no rationalizing with her during those moments and she just cries more when I ask her to go to her room to cry. Ugh. These episodes are really putting a damper on things and I just want to help her!!

So today was my birthday, yet it's made me feel down. I got a text from my mum and one of my sisters (I have 2 sisters, 1 brother), my mum dropped off a present and card from her and my dad.

Then he caused an argument.Yeah I got messages on Facebook, but...
Minutes, days and weeks go by. And no one gives a care about what I am doing or if I am alive or not. I only hear from Family when they want something. Supposedly my “friends” don’t even text or call to see if i want to go somewhere or do somthing. I could die and it may be days before anyone would miss me.
