Re: Dad's cancer
hi, I'm so sorry to hear about your father, that has got to be so hard to deal with. I think you should make an appt w/ your school counselor and talk to him/her and they will probably handle talking to your teachers if you don' want to.
It would probably be a good idea to see a counselor outside of school as well, if you can. This is a LOT of stuff for someone at your age to handle so having someone else to talk to is a good idea. I know it seems weird but I think once you do it and get started you will get into it and feel a little better and he/she will help you learn how to deal with things.
Please let me know how you are getting along, ok? thinking of you, Cathy
