She is not taking anything other than Lithium on a daily basis. We do have Xanax that we use if she gets real bad (only once a week if that).
Here are comments she makes routinely:
1) I have no friends and nobody loves me.
2) I'm not a good person
3) I'm hopeless
4) I'm fat, ugly, etc.
She is a nice looking 17 year old girl who graduated from high school a year early and has almost 2 years of college under her belt. She does not want to go to school in the fall and is withdrawing on a dailty basis.
