I'm new to the group. I thought I would try here to see if anyone had any ideas.
My daughter lost her Father in 2005 to cancer & she never really dealt with it. We have talked about it, she has talked about it to her cousin, but she still has a really hard time with it. She is very angry at her Dad & has blocked out a lot of her memories of him. She doesn't quite know how to deal with that.
We just found out that my Aunt has cancer & it is really affecting her even more.
My daughter is very shy & has a hard time getting to know anyone. She is scared of letting someone get close because she is scared that they are going to leave her again.
Does anyone on here know of any online grief groups for teenagers?
I've tried the American Cancer Society but they haven't really been able to help. My daughter keeps telling me that no one understands what she is going through. I keep telling her that there are other teens out there that have lost a parent & we just have to find them.
