Might also include Asperger's. She needs to be evaluated.

OP, are you still out there?? I don't quite understand your comment about your daughter's behavior "this summer", as it's presently May...

Good catch. OP seems to have "left the room." This was OP's first post.

I was about to mention something like this, but schizophrenia came to mind. OP, teens are very fragile in this regard. Have her checked ASAP. I was just conversing with a colleague last week about her sonís sudden symptoms. Sheís very worried and rightfully so.

Iím definitely NOT trying to diagnose. Better safe than sorry.

The truth is you cannot even get these jobs without a H.S. diploma. Perhaps do some applications with her, so she can experience the true rejection that will be her reality without an education.

OP....A complete check up...and I strongly support those that have suggested a mental health connection be ruled out.

And, take her things and make her earn them back by doing her school work.
