      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. What Easter Meant to me THIS Year ...

    . This is the Scripture I chose for my son's eulogy. " But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him. " 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 .
  2. . My special needs adult son died suddenly during a seizure. He had uncontrolled grand-mal seizures for over 20 years. My greatest fear was him falling and hurting himself. Thank God, for 20 years he only had minor bruises and scratches. That fateful morning, he was awake, but still lying in bed... then he had a seizure. He never regained consciousness. I find comfort knowing his last conscious thought was of his bed, his room, his normal routine and his mommie nearby. .
  3. Loss of an Adult Child

    . Here is an example of how my life revolved around my special needs son. I moved to the house I live in now because it was close to his special needs daycare so I could work full time to support us... and also because the neighborhood was nice for walking [we loved to walk together.] Over the decades, I saved my money and planned to retire early. Then six years ago I did that. For those six years before he died, it was Jamie and I together constantly 24/7. I am so glad we had that special time together... we took many road trips... one special trip to San Antonio [photos of Jamie in San Antonio are at links below.] .
  4. Loss of an Adult Child

    . Many thanks for all your kind responses. Jamie was my only child. I was a single mom since he was a baby. My son was autistic and had gal-mal seizures for over 20 years. Mentally he was like a child and depended upon me 24/7. Although he was autistic, he was loving and sweet. Jan... I feel as you do. My son was my main focus. Everything I did... all my future plans... revolved around him. He defined who I was. Then one fateful morning... while he was still lying in bed... he had a seizure. It was no different from hundreds before. I was thankful he was in bed and didn't fall and hurt himself. I was right there... waiting for the seizure to end. But this time was different... this time he never woke up. Now... I am without a compass... without direction. I lived 38 years in a very unique kind of life... and in an instant that life was over. I don't have the inclination to start over this late in life. So what do I do now ?? So far, I've only been existing. .
  5. Jamie, my child forever...

    . My 38 year old special needs son, Jamie, died suddenly during a seizure on July 18, 2013. He was my only child... I was a single mom since he was a baby. Losing him is like losing a part... the best part... of myself. A friend who also lost a special needs son, said it like this... you think you were the one taking care of him... but when he's gone... you realize how much he took care of you. .
