47. I went through unbearable hell at her age. No words to describe it.
I still occasionally have flashbacks and nightmares, especially if I see someone or something to remind me of that time. The hormones and naivete of that age seem to amplify suffering; perhaps it scars everyone.

Be sure to take her pain seriously, whatever may be causing it. One of the things that hurt me and infuriated me most is when adults ignored just how severely relationships and personal tragedies were affecting me, saying that I was young and resilient and I'd bounce back in a few days.
