      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. Does everybody know our Facebook link?

    Just a comment here, I was rather active on a FB grief group that is a "closed group", and a member of 2 others as well.(also both closed) I found very much support among the people I met there especially in one of the groups. It was very helpful and some nights I felt that the people there literally saved me from falling into a deep dark hole of complete despair, as I have no one to talk to about my grief. BUT then an‎ acquaintence of mine somehow sought me out in the grief related groups I was members of and joined the groups. I felt very violated. Although I KNOW anything that I put on the internet can be read by others, there are some people I did not want to share with, this is why I made it a point to join CLOSED groups. It was easier to share my raw and personal feelings with others who were going through the same thing as I was... So be very careful when sharing on FB, even with closed groups, as anyone can request to join a group. I was at least lucky enough to notice that this person started joining the groups I was in, basically stalking me, so I deleted all my posts, and left the groups I was in. But it is very disheartening, as I lost my support network as well. Now I am left alone, with out anyone to talk to about what I am going through and feeling. Afraid to share even though sharing, and offering support to others was healing for me... I did try one on one therapy, but that is NOT for me. Went to several sessions, and it made things worse. Now I am on a huge back slide. crawling back into my shell.... Rant over. Just wanted to warn those thinking abough FB.... Much love to all suffering a loss. May happy memories bring you peace and comfort. <3
