So DD1 long story short has had a decline in mental health over last few weeks. Came to a head today and we had to leave her home alone. Just had this convo with my mum.

Me: DD is in her moods and depressed (This is what has happened) don't think she should be home alone can she hang with you today.

Mum yep sure be there soon

Ring text text ring text no answer

Nearly 3 hrs later

Mum -yeah just got here.
Me- what she been doing
Mum - I dunno
Me- do you wanna just make sure she didn't take anything or have cuts on herself
Mum-What do you mean

I won't tell you the rest of the conversation suffice to say i now know why the obvious self harming signs I bore and quite open depression I had was completely ignored and untreated from the age of 7 till I left home. I have had this exact conversation with my mum many times and its continuously like I am having it for the first time.

Yes DD is seeing someone she refuses to put in the effort and or has not found someone she gels with. Will be speaking with CPS about finding someone more suited to her this week
