I feel so lost. I had no warning signs. I mean she did show some anger issues, but I blamed it on teenage hormones. Mostly she would become irate when we wouldn't let her run here and there, and over curfew. We had went to a birthday party and got the call from my parents who found her. She had walked outside, bleeding from the mouth, nose, etc. She said she shot herself. She was life flighted to the nearest hospital where we spent 6 days in ICU, surgery to wire her broken jaw shut, a few days in a step down room, then a week in a psych ward. She's home now, awaiting brain surgery to remove the bullet from her frontal lobe. She's doing very well, considering..... I just don't know what to do ...how to feel... how to cope.. or how to trust again.
