My wife has stage 4 TNBC and she has been battling since Oct 2008. She has been through several lines of treatment, bilateral masectomy, and radiation. My oldest daughter is 15 and refuses to speak about what she is feeling with anyone, including any family members. We, the entire family, went to counseling last year and my oldest was very uncooperative and was telling my younger 2 daughters that if they say anything then they will be considered CRAZY and will be taken away. Not only is my teen going through normal teenage rebellion, but her BIO dad is not in the pitcure and I recently adopted all 3 of my girls this past October.
I want to know if I should continue to make my teen go to counseling and see different counselors until she finds one that she likes, because I don't want her to continue to deal with this on her own. She has been depressed, angry and her attitude is hard to distinguish between normal teen behavior or the fear about her mom's passing away.
Any advice or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
