My name is Lulu Sullivan, and I started TEEN GRIEF when I was sixteen. My father died suddenly when I was thirteen, and the loss still hurts me every day. I have always had trouble talking to people about my pain – I don’t want to burden the people who also lost him, and nobody else in my life understood what I was going through. I created TEEN GRIEF because I knew it was a resource that would have helped me through my grief. Listening to advice from somebody my age who also knew true loss was something I needed (and still need).
And I think others do too.
