      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. struggling and need support

    Val. I am so sorry for your loss. Mu husband died 6 months ago. You mention you have not moved on yet. In my experience moving on is not necessary when it is so new. I started attending grief groups early on and it verified that others felt the same way as I did ans I was not going crazy. It takes so much energy to grieve so if the only thing you do in a day is eat to maintain your energy that is all you need to accomplish in that one day. Some days I just took it one hour at a time. I also reached out to others to keep busy. It helped me keep going. hope this helps. you are not going crazy you are grieving. Take it in baby steps.

    Hello to new to Chat room. I remember the first days alone. I left lots of lights on and Ininstalled securitybrightbaway. It gives me piece of mind. My husband also decided to stop meds but I was in such a daze taking care of him. No one knows what we go through as woidows. I went to a support group two weeks after he died. It helped so much to just keep telling my story. It was so therapeutic. The best to you.

    My husband died after a long illness. He died at home and my daughters and I cared for him in his last 5 days after he decided to not fight any longer. I have all his things to go through but just cannot do it yet. So hard to move on after 41 years of marriage.
