Lost my husband back in 2019 and it still affects our family so much. Recently I’ve found my youngest daughter, 16, has been ever so miserable lately. She doesn’t want to get up and we don’t often see her smile. She has always been quite emotionless and stoic but this time it feels different. I hear her cry in her room sometimes but when i go in to check she tells me to go away and gets angry. I don’t know what’s wrong with her. I love her to bits and just want her to be happy. I don’t know what to do
We all seem to benefit from this forum I wonder if there’s something similar for young people it’s so much easier writing sometimes than saying face to face, I think cruse supports young people I seen it in there website, it’s so hard supporting the family when you’re feeling so empty yourself so sending hugs xx
Finally, The Mix has an online community for anyone aged 16-25 to talk about any issues that are on their minds - your Daughter might find this a good way of connecting with others in a similar age bracket.
I hope this information helps - I really hope you find the community helpful and supportive as you process all that you’re going through.
