My daughter used to be heavily involved with outside activities. However, since turning 18, I have noticed a change. Presently, she seems to not want to do anything except watch tv, use her computer, eat, and sleep.

She has had counseling on several occasions between the ages of 15 - 17. The reason for the therapy is because she was cutting and sending aggresive emails and texts to various people. On the other hand when she is face to face with those people she has nothing to say.

I am also concerned because certain issues that should provoke concern and rational responses often causes her to laugh instead. I am at my wits end and I am really considering having her placed on medication.

What should I do?
