    In all seriousness at her age and in her onpion you don't LOL but she is now at a thershold of becoming an adult and it sounds like peer pressure is hammering away at you both. Her rrom being dirty....that right now is all she feels is her sanctum... she controls that only and any interference in her room is forbidden. It is hers. It is where her privacy is and at her age she needs that. all of this is simply her trying to figure out where she fits in this world. It is a VERY HARD time for you both Sometimes it is Da&* hard to let go and let them make their own mistakes and her understanding where you need support too...she probably has no clue. Just remember it is not personal. It is hormones,growing and srarghing for a place in this world. Keep saying I Love You to her...let her know that you are there for her . She see your turmoil right now do not think she doesn't she does but she is not sure what to do about it. The fact that you are depressed scares. She either is coming to realise her rock has cracks also or she wants to fix it and doesn't know how. I truly hope this makes sense to you. Whenever one of you leave the house remeber to say I love you. Hang in there both of you will gwt thourgh this. I wish you both emotional peace.

    Hey,

    No need to apologize, I know what you meant. You are correct, we both need our privacy and our space, especially when we are angy. We have a safe place to retreat when things get heated. I am brushing up on my math for a final today. Wish me luck

    Have a great day

    This might sound overly simplistic, but it works for me. Take some good supplements, eat well, get 7 or 8 hrs of sleep daily and exercise almost daily. Go to Vitacost.com (they have a great selection and low prices).

    This might sound like Voodoo if you think only pharmaceuticals and surgery is proper medicine. But seriously, I have a history of depression and I've taken antidepressants. I can tell you that high quality Omega 3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) such as Mega EFA sold by Vitacost works far better. And take 4 or 5 gelcaps of this per day, it can't hurt. Also, take Vit E, high doses of Vit C and CoQ10. Nutrition is most important.
