I understand your pain, and I'm really sorry you're going through this. Your daughter is still a kid though, even if she is 16, and just hasn't had time to accept that it's just the way things are. And most teens are pretty self-absorbed anyway. It's a lot to ask of a kid to try to deal with an illness like yours. Just keep doing what you can. Talk to her about it. Maybe get her in for some counselling so she can get her frustrations off her chest without directing it at you. This is hard because it's not even her illness and she has to deal with the consequences of it too. Hang in there!
