In Sept my senior high school DD decided to go off anti-anxiety meds without any medical supervision. She had the worst of all worst reactions... A full manic psychotic break in school.

Her BFF since kindergarten next door neighbor turned her back on my child. Everyone in her group of friends followed suit. I have watched her put on 30 pounds, break out in cystic acne and cry everyday.

In the past few months she has rallied! She kept calling the ExbFF and begging her to forgive! ( forgive for what??) Recently she told me that she has nothing to be sorry for and the ExBff should apologize to her for not being there.
You go my girl!

But last night was senior prom.
She was not asked.

I know down the road this will not matter as much but to watch your child in pain and sobbing.


Sucks!

I'm sorry your daughter is hurting. High school "friends" can be so cruel.

I'm glad she has you in her corner. A loving mom is an awesome thing to have to navigate those tough times.

Hugs to you an DD. No matter what happens to us, when our child it hurting it's a million times worse.

I hope that she can get to a place of comfort and peace.

I'm so sorry. Your DD deserves friends with good hearts. Not this sad excuse for people. Please give her a huge hug for me.

huge, huge hugs to your DD, and to you as well. That former BFF was a real sh*t, but it hurts terribly regardless.

In the past few months she has rallied! She kept calling the ExbFF and begging her to forgive! ( forgive for what??) Recently she told me that she has nothing to be sorry for and the ExBff should apologize to her for not being there.

She is on the right track! The 'friend' may be ignorant of mental health issues and possible medication-related issues, so in that regard a brief explanation might be in order. However, so would a statement like, "the way you treated me after all our years of friendship really hurt me".

I'm so sorry your DD was hurting so badly. I'm with you: down the road the prom doesn't amount to a hill of beans, but in the moment, it matters a LOT. It can feel like being publicly branded "a loser". I wish her all good things in the future and much success (a.k.a. The Best Revenge). Sounds like she's got a strong spirit and that will serve her well in life.

I know how heart-breaking it is when our children are sad. It sounds like your daughter is very smart. Someday, as you said, she'll recognize that senior prom means nothing.

For both your sakes, I hope she continues to rally, and that day comes sooner rather than later!

((((hugs))))
