Help! Life is just too hard

 

 

 

For a while, I felt like I had everything anyone could ever want: awesome friends, no pimples (yay!) and a great family. Then everything changed. My parents got divorced, my dag began to ignore me, and my mom got cancer and is in the hospital. She says that it’s her medication that’s making her hair fall out. I don’t want to talk to anyone about it, not even my best friends. I’m so sad.

 

 

Dear Can’t Take It,

I’m not surprised you’re upset. It’s hard when someone you love is in the hospital, and I’m sure your mom doesn’t like being sick either. She’d rather be there for you and be strong for you. That said, try to accept your sadness (it’s normal under these circumstances) and tell her you’re worried and that you love her.

 

You’re mom’s hair is probably falling out because of chemotherapy, but often chemo can make all the difference. Confide in a relative or a teacher you can trust, and don’t shut out your closest friends. You don’t have to spill anything you’re not comfortable with, but letting others in on how you’re feeling will be freeing. Promise. And can you get a hold of your dad and let him know that you need and want him in your life? I hope your family gets better news soon.
