I wish I knew what to do
My daughter (1st born) is a beautiful 24yo who has a degree in digital communications. She has never lived away from home. Her father and I bought her a car, paid her way through school, paid all her bills even after she has a job. (car insurance) She did buy gas and some of her food that she wanted to eat when she was working. She got fired almost a year ago, and before that I could see that she hated her job and she voiced it a few time. She gained a lot of weight like 80 pounds. I told her when she got fired to take the time to work on getting herself healthier, think about what she wants to do with her life. She seemed really depressed all the time. She is slowly losing the weight, but she still has quite a bit to lose. She has been in therapy, but they didnt seem to help much. she has trouble sleeping, but I think it is because she doesn't do anything to wear herself out during the day. All she does all day long is sleep until 3-4 oclock, get up and sit with her laptop drawing or talking with her one and only friend that lives in texas. She goes to a anime' convention once a year for the weekend, and an ocassional movie but other than that she sits at home with mom and dad. She will help out around the house only if I tell her to. I have tried to get her to go back to school, look for a job, go to bed at a descent hour and get up and get out of the house. She will go and pick up job applications and sometimes we will fill them out, but most of the time they never make it back to the place she got them. I try to get her to do anything for money like restaurant work, walmart, or anything just to get out and meet people. I have even suggested online dating since she likes the internet so well. NOTHING WORKS!!!! I do not know what to do. I am at my wits ends with this adult child of mine. I am thinking of going into therapy just to figure out what I have done to her. My son is 19 yo and has been off to college since he was 18. HE has no problems with socializing or anything. What am I going to do?
