Hello, I am so sorry that your daughter has these very severe behavioral issues and I agree this is definitely beyond ADHD. Bipolar
Disorder, Schizoaffective Disorder
, and/or Borderline Personality Disorder
can all be considered as possible diagnoses for some of the behavior you described. I would like to ask a few question to get a better idea of her current situation and what can actually be done for her in the future.
1. You state that she will not seek help, does this mean she is not willing to undergo any treatment or medications to help lessen these behavioral issues?
2. Has inpatient or residential treatment ever been suggested for her?
3. Have you tried to consult with an attorney to force treatment upon her, if that is an option, given her symptoms and behavioral issues?
4. Since treatment is typically voluntary, are you willing to accept the possibility that there may be nothing you can do for her if she is not willing to undergo treatment or if forced treatment is not a long-term option?
