Do you ever feel like the lone tree in a forest of confusion? Teens, do you feel out of place because of an illness, because of what you are going through, or because you look at life differently than your peers. As a pediatric nurse and mom I understand what you are going through. If you are the sibling of a patient going through a health crisis, you too may feel out of place and need to share your feelings.
Visit my website at http://freewebs.com/heartfeltwords4kids/ and click on the page titled Kids Words and Then Some..... Here I have designed a page/blog just for you. Kids of all ages who are experiencing a loss or have been dealing with an illness now have a safe place to write what they feel or to ask questions of me or their peers. I have the medical background to help you find answers to questions you may not feel comfortable asking. I also feel it is important for you to have a place to talk if you are scared or feel alone. Parents are free to explore the website for resources and book reviews too.
When a child is ill, the whole family goes through a variety of stressful feelings and painful subjects open up. My site will hopefully provide some extra information and guidance for coping with all of the stress you are encountering.
Check it out.... soon I will have a newsletter too, and will be looking for ideas from you for content. Be sure and fill out the comment section if you have any ideas.
