      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

  3. One year ann coming up

    Thank you BreathofAngel. It's been a really bad day. I have been crying non-stop. Just missing my Dad like crazy. I called my Mom and she said I have to think of it like this-he is no longer in pain and is in a better place.But I guess I am being selfish because I want him here with me! My brother is lucky-he has Dad back and me and Mom don't If anyone would like to text me and talk my # is 513-356-5004. My phone is always on.
  4. Hi lostandstuck, I am so sorry you have to go thru this pain. I lost my older brother 8 years ago to sleep apnea,and even after all this time I still miss him like crazy. As you have discovered,you have good days and bad days. I almost wanted to die myself when he died. I felt like a part of myself was missing. I still have days where I think about him constantly. I found almost no support from others,not even family. At the funeral everyone gave their condolences to my parents and hardly any to me. It's like I didn't count. I went to a grief support group but not one person there was there to grieve a sibling. It was all parents,spouses,kids,etc. I did find a great Yahoo group that has helped a lot. If you want the name of it I will give it to you. It deals specifically with the loss of a sibling. Feel free to pm me anytime if you want to talk.
  5. First of all,I am so sorry for the losses you've had to endure. I lost my Dad last August and to this day I still feel guilty that I wasn't able to go visit him the day before he passed due to a really bad migraine. But I totally agree with the person who said that your parents passing during each of your pregnancies is coincidental. If you ever want to talk you can pm me.
  6. It is going to be a year on August 9th since I lost my Dad. I don't know how I am going to handle it. If I will be an emotional mess or just shed a tear here and there. I am definitely going to the cemetery and bring him flowers and a balloon for his bday,which is the 12 th. how did everyone handle the one year ann of your parent's passing?

  9. I lost my Dad back in August and this will be the first one without him. I am really dreading it and just wish I could sleep straight through to the new year. Does anyone have any tips that might help me and my Mom?
  10. I would love to chat in the chat room sometime

  11. Had my first breakdown

    Hi SadRN-I am forcing myself to get into the holiday spirit because I know my Dad and brother would not want me to not celebrate because they are not here. I am worried about my Mom though bc she said she is not even going to put a tree this year.
  12. Had my first breakdown

    Hi Kate. Thanks for responding. I usually only cry like that when I am by myself. I was handling the holidays ok after my brother died. My Dad got sick in December 2009 and I started preparing myself the second time he went into the nursing home. But when he died it was still a shock. You grow up thinking your parents are invincible and nothing bad will ever happen to them. Since my Dad died I have become super protective of my Mom because besides my husband she is the only family I have left. I guess it is normal to feel that way.
