Father has had no contact with now 18 year old daughter for 13 years.
My daughter has become increasingly apathetic and is getting poor grades, is overweight and has a condition that requires less weight and sugar or her health as an adult will be compromised.
She does not take the medication that is prescribed for her. She has no pride in her appearance and fights any efforts I might try to help her. She wears clothing that is very unattractive and sometimes dirty and ill fitting.
She does not keep herself clean. She will sneak in sugary food and not eat regular means. She is "sick" when she has a test. Her grades have gone down.
She appears to not want to be like me, which is fine, but I am concerned she is ruining her future and is always unhappy. Her father left when she was six and has had no contact with her since them. I am a full time attorney currently being treated for breast cancer. I have sent her to therapists, psychiatrists, nutritionists, tutors. I am at my wits end. Do you have any suggestions?
