Hi, Welcome to JA. I am sorry to hear about your granddaughter's situation. Let me ask you a question before I offer an answer. When did this start?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
My dtr says things began to change in middle school. At this pt her grades have been good, she was loving her flute, piccolo and piano. Also, I didn't mention that she had been cutting herself. I don't know how long that was going on. I'm trying to get this information for my dtr and son-in-law as they are in such a state of crisis. Thank you
