Default Re:My twelve year old

Hi, I am Elissa,,I remembered my password, finally,,,, My daughter just had surgery , and we are "RECOUPERATING", AWAY FROM HOME. Jaci is almost 15, and for years did not want to talk about her H. It is a very sensitive subject for her, as I suppose for yuor daughter as well.

When your daughter was born, like mine, thoughts and attitudes were different about H's.. We too, waited and waited for it to go away. Needless to say,,,it didn't.

I needed to PUSH my daughter into all treatment,,, she was "turned off" to discussions, because she lived with the promise,,"it'll go away".

I would not feel bad about your choice about waiting,,because you belived what was told. If your daughter wants to talk to mine,,or anything else she needs,..just let me know.

Between myself, and my daughter, I understand how you both feel.
