          “I’ve called my mom a [expletive], and I know that’s bad,” says the teenager, adding, “But in the moment, she’s calling me ‘crazy’ or she’s calling me ‘psycho’ and in that moment I want to say something to her that makes her feel as bad as I do when she calls me crazy.”

          Larissa says she put Noelle in therapy on the recommendation of her psychiatrist. Why does Noel say she feels like her mother is pawning her off on other people?
