    It would be damn hard growing up in a family like Teds.
    There's a lot of things they didn't tell me when I signed on with this outfit....

    My heart goes out to her. Mental health issues like that are a lot more commonplace than most people understand, irrespective of people's political badges. Damned tough to be family to a person who's struggling this way too. I hope she finds the help she needs, and that the family's left alone on this issue.

    What a shame & I hope she gets all the help she needs. I also hope the media just doesn't "go there".

    It is very tempting to "go there"
    Can anyone here imagine having Ted Cruz as a father?

    There's a limited number of things a parent can do to help make this better, and a much larger range of things to make it worse. I hope Ted and his wife find the ability to do the former.

    I hope the youngster gets well . . . ill wishes toward her and her family about this matter are very inappropriate.

    BUT, if this happened to a Dem family, the Reich would be telling jokes and generally yukking it up.

    As they did in the case of Paul Pelosi.

    First and foremost I think this should not be publicized this is a young girl regardless of her fathers position in need of help and compassion

    Sadly self harm is extremely common with young women ( and some men ) I hope she gets the help she needs. From what I understand it’s about wanting to take control when you feel as though you have no control in your life. Through my daughter I’ve learned about friends of hers that have gone through this very dangerous and harmful acts. It’s terrifying. My only connection to Ted Cruz is is this the daughter that pulled away from him when he attempted to photo op kiss her ?

    Quite true. And same slime-trailers who were quick to post misleading derogatory memes about Mr. Pelosi, or spread malicious rumors... would be the first to yelp and take offense if anyone did anything remotely similar in the case of the Cruz family. No matter HOW apt the actually were.

    There are a range of reasons for self harm in this way. One is when there is inner psychological pain or trauma that the individual is not able to express, or articulate. The self harm gives a physical focal point and tangible reality to the intangible inner pain. More often than not it is a cry for help rather than an attempt at suicide.

    The modern western way of life with all the pressures and priorities of earning a large enough income etc and which is often in conflict with a more grounded natural way of living has a lot to answer for.

    She speaks on TicTok:

    Ted Cruz’s daughter addresses speculation after self-inflicted stab wounds: ‘I’m not suicidal’

    Jami Ganz - New York Daily News
    Dec 8, 2022 Updated 7 hrs ago

    Sen. Ted Cruz’s teenage daughter is speaking out after she was hospitalized this week for reported self-inflicted stab wounds.

    Caroline Cruz, 14, took to TikTok Wednesday to address speculation regarding the self-inflicted stab wounds she reportedly sustained the day prior, which necessitated her being taken to the hospital.

    “I wanted to address this on my own because the media is … causing my mental health to be exploited for their gain,” said Cruz. “I also don’t enjoy the assumptions on why I did what I did.”

    The teen, who confirmed in the caption she was reading from a script, went on to dispel some conjecture.

    “No, it had nothing to do with my sexuality or my father. I’m not suicidal but I am experiencing some mental issues,” she said, noting she’s “working through it and getting the help I need. Thank you so much for all the support and love, it means a lot to me. But the most traumatizing part of this experience is how public it’s been.”

    While Cruz said she’s “feeling a lot better,” she asked those watching to not “make bold statements about what this is when you truly have no idea.”

    You're making stuff up again. Paul Pelosi is three times the age of majority, a wealthy businessman and the beneficiary of much of his wife's power and influence. They don't live in Pacific Heights because Nancy is a poor Mexican struggling for justice.

    This girl is 14 years old. The situations do not even vaguely resemble one another.

    Ummmm lets see, Ted's a multi millionaire and his wife, Heidi Cruz, is a managing director at Goldman Sachs.

    Ted is a US Senator
    Nancy is a US Senator

    Ted is a multi millionaire
    Nancy is a multi millionaire

    Ted's wife is managing director at Goldman Sachs.
    Nancy's husband runs a real estate and venture capital investment and consulting firm

    I don't know I kinda see a slight resemblance

    The only difference is no one broke into Ted's home with a hammer and bashed Heidi Cruz in the head.
    I also doubt while Paul was in a coma he could have Tick Tocked his fans to let them know he was ok.

    I suppose if Ted consulted his fourteen year old daughter on policy decisions of the US government and she benefitted greatly from those decisions to the tune of becoming a multi-millionaire off the backs of working people, you could see a valid resemblance.

    Unfortunately, he doesn't appear to do so. His platform would probably be a lot more reasonable if he did. Even a 14 year old is smarter than Mr Cruz.

    Ahhhh you did find the difference Nancy and Paul love each other and have a close personal relationship based on mutual respect and communication. While no one likes Ted not even his daughter.

    Now I wonder if Heidi Cruz, who is a managing director at Goldman Sachs got any inside info from the committees Teds on hmmmmm I mean if we are gonna let innuendos fly let them fly

    And so far not a single elected democrat has joked about this painful situation on TV or social media, nor made up BS about it.
