      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. How Do I Cope?

    We just found out about the Compassionate Friends. We haven't went to a meeting yet but that's because I just found it online a few days ago. My husband and I plan to attend the next meeting, but I am really skeptical about it. I don't know if it is going to help to hear that people are going through the same thing or if it going to make me feel worse. I am so sorry for your loss and reading your story, it absolutely broke my heart. That's why I am not sure if this group is going to be a good thing for me... I very much appreciate you responding to my post. I was beginning to feel a bit lost in the crowd when I had seen that over 50 people viewed my post but none replied. So Thank you.
  2. How Do I Cope?

    On April 7, 2013 my husband and I lost our son. He was stillborn. We had been trying for awhile and we were so happy when we found out that I was pregnant. It felt like our lives were coming together in the best way. I woke up with a terrible pain in my stomach and we went to the ER. They said everything was fine, they had him on the monitor and I could hear his heart beating. Then, all of a sudden, it was gone. It's been almost five months since we lost Anderson but I feel like I am getting worse. People have told me that it gets better and easier with time, but that is just not true. I feel worse today than I felt the day after it happened. I don't know how to function and I don't know how to be around people. I have become very short tempered and I tend to just stay home now. There are days that I don't even get out of bed because it hurts so bad. There are days when all I do is sit home and cry. Those days have been happening more and more often lately. I have always considered myself to be a very strong person, who could handle just about anything, but I feel like I have reached my breaking point. I know that I need help, but I don't know how or where to get it. I don't know how to cope with this. I just feel so lost and alone.
