I'm so sorry you find your self in this situation. Nothing I have ever experienced before even came close to the heartache and pain of my daughter's abuse. Here you find other parents who really do understand that. I read that she refuses to go to counseling....remember you are the mom and sometimes our kiddos have to do things they don't want to do. I really do believe she needs to get some help. If you have your move scheduled then I say get that done and past you but once you settle you need to look for a counselor for your daughter. She has to deal with the ramifications of her fears. The PTSD, social phobias, anxiety, ect are all related to the abuse and at 13 she is not equipped to deal with this alone. Even if you have to take her kicking and screaming she needs help or I'm afraid she will not begin to heal. I"m so glad you are getting closer to your family for support that will be invaluable.
Hang in there,
