Hi Hateedwithapassion,

Meditation is a powerful way to ease anxiety. Perhaps your daughter could really benefit from being in that environment before going to college and perhaps she will find new tools to ease her depression. Can the school she got into let her start next year instead of this fall? Often that is possible.

Just a thought....

Hi HateEDwithApassion

Would it be possible for your D to stay at home and drive to college every day? I know an hour to and an hour back sounds like a lot, but that is what my hubby and I did back in our days (it took even longer when we used public transport). After a while one gets used to it. That way she can ease into it and maybe the following year, she can stay at college.

MelstevUK - Thank you for the book suggestion 'Parenting your anxious child with mindfulness and acceptance', I'm definitely getting it.

Ed_newbie - I think I'm also suffering from refeeding PTSD. My D is eating and growing now, but since the beginning of the year I can't sleep. My 'get up and go' got up and went :-)))).

D became obsessed with exercise at age 9. Started eating 'healthy' at age 9.5. Restricting couple of months later. IP for 2 weeks at age 10. Slowly refed for a year and WR at age 11 in March 2017. She is back to her old happy self and can eat anything put in front of her. Now working on intuitive eating.
