DD, Aged 17
When people would talk they didn't know what to say which was understandable. more...
Mimi - 15 years old
I lost myself doing stupid things, angry and sad and depressed at everything. I ended up failing my classes, not caring about school, and getting into fights. more...

I stuck my head round the door in the room mum was in, and she looked really ill. I couldn't understand what was happening - one minute my mum was fine and the next she was ill. more...

Something I wish is I could just have one more day with my dad! - to tell him how much I love him and how sorry I am for all the bad things I have said and done to him! more...

This time the doctors are unable to operate. He has already had 6 sessions of chemo and is having another 6 sessions. I cannot help feeling I may lose him. more...

I have been staying with my dad because my mom doesn't want me around when she is sick, which is all the time. My dad works at night so I spend a lot of time alone since I'm not with my mom. I'm afraid she is going to die and I'll blame myself for not being there more. more...

She has been so strong about this and is keen to put it all behind her. more...
It's 11 months now that my dad passed away! It sometimes feels longer, then other days it could feel like last week! I have flash backs in my head of my dad and sometimes it is the flash backs I want to see!!! but I try have the happy memories! Something I wish I could just have one more day with my dad! - to tell him how much I love him and how sorry I am for all the bad things I have said and done to him! But I suppose that won't happen! I just wish that all them times he asked me to do something I do it! and when he was ill I spend more time with him, that's the times I regret! But he will understand that hopefully!
The things that are important to me now are my family and best friends!! They are the ones that make me happy when I am sad, and when I am down they are the ones that let me cry on there shoulder. It hurts and at first I thought it was only me hurting, like every1 does, we all hurt in different ways, some worse than others, but I know I am not the only person hurting out there! and I know that I am not alone in the world. I would wish one thing for my dad to come back but I can't do that, he is in a better place now looking over and protecting me. And I have to live life without him
