My daughter can’t seem to be happy at all. She’s struggling with working, sleeping, and feeling like she has no friends. She seems to be sad more days than not. I want to help! She lives 3.5 hours away from me, but calls me daily telling me how bad her life is. I have tried to get her to move home so that I can help her manage her finances and help her to get back on her feet, but she is not willing to do that. How do I help? Is this a permanent side effect of the brain injury? Is she a victim of circumstance? She didn’t qualify for disability, and she struggles with her jobs. I’m at a total loss on how to help her. I have suggested finding a counselor (therapist) to talk to, but she doesn’t seem interested in that. I just want to help her. If anyone has any suggestions, they are greatly appreciated!! Thank you in advance!!

My daughter is a 32 year TBI I took her to a psychiatrist and they put her on Zoloft as she had a lot of problems, and this seem to help her, Plus she was in a group called High Hopes that did therapy with her daily, This is a hard journey, sending prayers to you and much strength.
