My thirteen year old daughter (butterflyfour) has discovered my identity here and read some of my post (we share a computer). I have been very vague with her concerning her dad's health. She knows that he has liver disease but did not know the severity. Most of the things I post here I keep to myself, because I don't really want my kids or my husband to know my inner thoughts. She is at the age now where things are hard enough without having to worry about something like this. I thought that I would explain a little at a time. Now I am not sure what to tell her, because I think by her reading some of the earlier post I have scared and confused her. Which I was trying to prevent since some of the things I worry about may not be for a long time. She has posted a message on the Depression Forum that I have to address. I hope I can find the words.
There is always hope!
