As a child my daughter used to always say things like 'it'll be okay'. Now the past year or so she is ALWAYS on edge, anything you ask her to do is a chore, angry, says she 'doesn't like people', 'her own friends get on her nerves', she only likes to talk with one of her cousins. I know that 2 of her close friends have boyfriends now and they let the BF come first and her other 3 close friends are pursuing other high school interests. My daughter, I believe, wants to go out more and do things, but really doesn't get invited to anything. She can be shy, but then she also comes across as though she does not want to be bothered by ANYTHING.
Today I found a notebook that she left out (maybe intentionally??) and I looked at it (bad mom?, but I am glad that I did). She wrote many things like: what is wrong with me, why am I always sad-my life isn't that bad, other people have it a lot worse than me, I feel like when I am happy that I don't deserve to be happy, or is it that I am always so sad that I don't like to feel happy.

I am really worried and don't understand why she feels this way. I definitely feel like I need to contact someone for her to talk to.

PLEASE -any help? Thanks!
