Hi Leigh, i am going through the same thing right now with my 16 year old daughter.  I tried to discipline her for things she has been doing and boom, walks out the door a month and a half ago and hasn’t even tried to contact me yet.  I am also, like you, confused, hurt, angry, sad.  I feel empty and I don’t understand what is going on and how this happened.  Worst part is, she left me to go to her dad, who she hates.  I am hoping others reply to this post because I would love to know the answer too.  I don’t know if I just need to disconnect and not contact her and give her the space but the mom inside of me says no keep contacting her.
