Hi Scott, it seems to me that it’s where you are mentally that underlines everything so firstly I’d go and have a chat with your doctor, there are also other forms of help such as:

Family Lives provide general support to families on issues around parenting, emotional support and just generally coping as a parent  0808 800 2222  TEXT SHOUT 85258  It is a 24 hour 7 day a week 365 day a year crisis text service, delivered by Mental Health Innovations.  A team of trained volunteers support anyone in crisis (texter is phone based, volunteer on a computer), and the aim is to help the person in crisis identify coping strategies and get them from a hot place of crisis, to a cool calm place where they can safety plan

Mind’s Elefriends forum is an anonymous 24/7 forum with an app, to talk about whatever you want to a highly supportive, lively online community:

SANEline – 0300 304 7000 SANE’s freephone helpline is open 16.30 – 22.30 everyday on 0300 304 7000 to talk about how you’re feeling

Samaritians – 116 123 The Samaritans are open 24/7 365 days a year – call 116 123 to talk to a listening volunteer about anything (they do not advise and signpost)

I feel once you get the right help you will not feel so stressed about your daughter and will see things in a much clearer way.
