      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

  1. Loss of an Adult Child

    Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts. Some days you just feel like you're going crazy and it's helpful to know that other people understand. This is not a group that any of us would choose to be in, but I thank you for sharing.
  2. Loss of an Adult Child

    This is my first time on this type of site. I lost my son Matthew on Oct 29/04. He was only 25. Matthew's death was quite sudden. We were only in the hospital for three weeks. I am grateful that I was able to spend those last three weeks by his side. The pain is too much to bear. Everyone is trying to "fix" me. I can't be fixed, I am broken forever. Do you have any advice on what helps? I feel only one thing would help and that's to have my child back. Please tell me it's ok to cry all the time. I am going to work everyday. Some people tell me that's a good thing and some of my co-workers tell me I need some time off. The perception is that I'm getting better, when in fact all I have done is get better at pushing my grief to the back of my mind so I can do my job, however when I get home the floodgates open. I still sometimes feel guilty when I laugh. I'm not an expert on grieving, but isn't this all part of it? Thanks for listening.
