I'm so sad that you and your dd are going through this. I wish I had some great advice for you, but I don't, dealing with some similar stuff here. (not as bad though) (hug)

Unfortunately it took me from ages 15-25 to deal with my depression and get it under control. And by control, I mean I only have bouts of it and not constant.
I believe my depression started at age 8, that's a LONG time to be depressed..but there IS hope and life CAN have color again.

her depression is cyclical, I know I've mentioned this before, but have you been charting her depression and her menstrual cycle? there is a form of PMS that is quite severe called PMDD. premenstrual dismorphic disorder. it happens about a week before the period starts and it is a severe mood change that totally affects the persons ability to function in life.

So I don't know much about clinical depression, but I do know that regular excersice helps me naturally. Does your dd excercise regularly?
Here is a link that may help.
