Jessica FINALLY admitted that she feels very isolated and alone. She has no group of online friends and her friends here are ignoring her. They have been for over a year but she clung to the hope that things would smooth out. The girl Jess thought of as her "bff" really isn't. This friend, S, has almost never called Jess to go do something. Jess is always the one to initiate contact. Often S will promise to "call back" and then never do it. I know how that feels. Even my aunt refuses to call me and almost never responds to my calls. It makes you feel unwanted and horrible. Do any of you know of online forums, groups etc... that Jess might try? The acting classes and local theater are out. She says the people on facebook are too old and on myspace it is older guys pretending to be teens. I think she is at a point that therapy might help. Prior to this (in the last 2 years) she would not open up and talk about problems like this. It sure sounds like now she might be open to talking about this with someone other than me. (And of course she will not speak to dad about any of it.) I wonder if maybe Special Olympics might have support groups. She needs to spend time with other people. Thanks for any ideas you can think of.
